Russian Hill Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
We have a gorgeous one bedroom apartment in the heart of Russian Hill halfway up Green Street @ the Hyde intersection, one block south of Union St.
It's a classic Victorian on the 2nd floor of a 3 story house with views of the city. It has been thoroughly modernized without losing its charm (new kitchen, bathroom, super fast wi-fi connection, new electricals etc.) as it has hardwood floors throughout and has all the shapes of that wonderful period of SF architecture.
We bought it as our weekend place. I used to live one block away and missed the area so much. Now we live in Southern California and fly or drive up about six times a year. That means... it's vacant most of the year - so you can pick when you want to come!
The neighborhood is tremendous. Russian Hill itself is a gentrified little area on one of the peaks in the center of the city. Down one side of the hill there sits Little Italy (North Beach) and Chinatown - with all its colors and fabulous culinary treats. On the other side is Cow Hollow and the Marina - both very hip, modern, fun, active areas. You're spoiled on Russian Hill.
There's a selection of really great neighborhood restaurants within a block, plus the cable car and bus at the end of the block - so no need for a car when visiting.
This is a cute, wonderful apartment in a great location that has been lovingly modernized. It's our pride and joy. As such we will only be renting to professional/respectable couples who we hope will love the place as much as we do. So please, no smokers, families of four, drug barons from Colombia, party-ers, or one legged pirates from the caribbean (the steps will kill you).
Please be aware that we rarely allow more than 2 adults. We do consider kids (just one, not a nest) if they are polite, respectful, do their homework and keep their arms crossed and heads on the desk at all times.....!
- pets not allowed
- non smoking only
I'm Mark, British, been in the US since 1994. Married to the wonderful Nina. We have a cheeky son, Evan.
We live in So.Cal. But I lived in SF for 6 years on entering the States in 1994 and am still in love with it.
I lived one block away for 6 years. Greatest city on earth.
It's a great neighborhood. The Restaurants, the people. I sense they are proud to live on RH. There's a cozy, safe, refined feel to Russian Hill even though it's in the heart of a city like SF.
