Location: 40 Montclair Ter., Russian Hill
The skinny: Just off the crooked part of Lombard is Montclair Terrace. This beautiful home is in a gorgeous part of Russian Hill, but just far enough away from Lombard that you won't have to be dealing with noisy tourists all day every day. It took a dip into the market in late 2013 without a sale, and was relisted in late January for $3.695M. It went into contract immediately and sold on February 18 for $205K over asking.
