Sitting at the top of Russian Hill, just a block away from the twisty part of Lombard Street and directly across from George Sterling Park, is a very, very expensive two-bedroom, three-bathroom co-op at 2222 Hyde Street. Unit 4 takes up the entire fourth floor of the seven-unit building, and just hit the market asking $5.15 million, a price that is as breathtaking as the views. Even with a spacious 2,600-square-foot floor plan, that's still $1,981 per square.
The interiors are old-world glamorous, with dark wood finishes, built-ins everywhere, and an emphasis on the views across the city and to Coit Tower. The unit includes a big fireplace, a dining room, and a library that has the potential to become a third bedroom. It also comes with one parking space and access to a shared rooftop room with fitness equipment and an entertainment center.
