If you've ever strolled past Crown Towers, you've taken notice of its crimson (Downing Street red, to be exact) facade with black trim. Hard to miss it this art deco/Gothic-inspired gem as you can see it from the Bay Bridge. And if you've looked closer, you've seen that it has a pretty cool address to boot. And now a one bedroom, one bath unit at 666 Post is ripe for the taking. For a cool $749,000, that is.
Designed by architect John C. Hladik in 1925, it was originally geared toward gentleman who lived outside the city, but needed a pied-a-terre near the former men-only clubs (e.g., the Bohemian Club, the Olympic Club, and the Pacific Union Club).
Today the building houses apartments and condos for anyone, gender be damned. And this 831-square-foot unit, located a notch above street level, features hardwood floors, heavenly arch doors, of-the-era tile in both kitchen and bathroom, built-ins, and more.
For some, Victorians are the ultimate San Francisco residential goal. For others, this downtown confection is what they dreamed about when they came to San Francisco.
