Let's face it: Telegraph Hill is where it's at, period. When it comes to unadulterated chic, we often turn to Presidio Heights or Nob Hill. When we want cool, we look toward Lower Haight, the Mission, or Bayview. But for all-around San Francisco glory, we crave Telegraph Hill.
This neighborhood is a wonder to behold. For example, last week we noted the art deco condo inside the Dark Passage Malloch Building. And if that wasn't enough — because it's never enough — we now have a comprehensively renovated 1906 home on 414-416 Vallejo.
And just look at it.
Reason enough to make the daily pedal up the hill on one's bike.
This five bedroom, five bath jewel comes with three levels that — get this — feature two levels as the main unit plus a separate guest quarters/in-law unit. Drool.
And while we're not one to go gaga over just any deck with a sweeping vista, we would gladly set up a tent on the upper deck and call it a home for life. Seriously. (Be sure to clock the stunning emerald Heath tiles in the bathroom.)
The home last sold in 2005 for $1,075,000. Before that, it sold in 1969 for a precious $41,000.
