Christened with the fruity sobriquet “Pineapple House” because of the embellishments atop the home’s facade, this Russian Hill home stands apart from its Victorian and Edwardian neighbors with a whimsical yet modern look.

Its price tag is pretty modern too, asking prospective buyers to dole out $6.9 million.

Built in 1954 by Clifford Conly, who also designed nearby 1715 Taylor, the two-bedroom, two-bathroom, 2,780-square-foot home was extensively renovated in 2000, and later updated by Orlando Diaz-Azcuy (181 Fremont) in 2007.

The interiors are sparse, swooping, and lightly hued. The first floor comes with a curved staircase, limestone flooring, and cathedral ceilings. And outside there’s a south-facing garden, tropical palm trees, and even a heated pool. The top floor (three in all) comes with a loggia, skylights, and a wet bar.

The house is located at the start of the Russian Hill-Vallejo Street Crest District. And its pineapple roofline is in the process of being included on the National Register of Historic Places. Which is to say: No picking the ornamental fruit, future homeowner.

1059 Vallejo is listed through Nina Hatvany of Compass.
