Devilishly handsome

Crown Towers, the Art Deco/Gothic high-rise in the Tendernob, remains one of San Francisco’s most underrated buildings. A shame since the units inside are both exquisite yet uncommonly affordable, at least by the city’s crushing real-estate standards.

Located on the 11th floor, unit 1104 at 666 Post comes with one bedroom, one bathroom, and 775 square feet. The corner unit features high ceilings and arched doors, as well as crown molding and period details (dig that Hunnings transmitter intercom in the foyer) that remain true to its 1926 roots despite a recent refresh that spruced up the kitchen and bathroom.

Built in 1925, the John C. Hladik-designed building originally opened as a space for men who wanted a pied-a-terre near the neighborhood’s gentlemen-only clubs (e.g., the Bohemian Club, the Olympic Club). The building is also noted for its rich hue, Downing Street red, as well as its netherworldly address.

And while we don’t typically fuss over lobbies, the one inside Crown Towers is downright lovely, with coffered ceilings, painted woodwork, and marble paneling. Swoon. Also, don’t miss the rooftop deck.

HOAs are $951/month. Asking is $775,00, listed through Tamara Weinstein of Compass.
