Telegraph Hill is notoriously difficult to buy real estate in, as most folks buy and stay put. Currently, there are only six homes available for purchase in the neighborhood. Here now, the 2-level penthouse at 268 Lombard Street, which we feel very comfortable saying is a prime piece of real estate tail. The 3-bed, 4-bath condo is completely blowing our mind with its views, outdoor spaces and overall Spanish Colonial design. In each photo you can see that nearly every room has breathtaking views of the Bay and beyond, including an up close and personal one of Coit Tower, which is basically this condo's neighbor. And of course, the listing states that the property has "prime view of the America's Cup Village including the finish lines for the 2013 America's Cup Finals & Louis Vuitton Cup." Asking price? $4,650,000. Monthly HOA dues are $447 and there's 1-car parking in the garage.
