↑ Located on a very tony block of Vallejo just steps from the Presidio, this home's magnificent. That said, the real gem is the terraced south garden that blurs the boundaries between outdoor and in. There's a living room, complete with sofas and a gigantic stone fireplace. There's also a huge hot tub. The property also an elevator.
↑ This home is significantly larger than its competition, and boasts more bedrooms and bathrooms. It's been rebuilt and is "a blend of modern with English sophistication." All we know is that the roof deck is bonkers, and there's additional terraces on site.
