This colorful, thoroughly updated purple Victorian cottage greets visitors with bay windows and a red door.
Abundant windows throughout, in addition to a huge skylight and French doors that open onto the flower-laden deck, make the inside remarkably bright and open. The color-splashed interior is compact but very livable, and filled with folk art collected during the owners’ extensive international travels.

NEIGHBORHOOD: RUSSIAN HILL You just can't find a better location in San Francisco. This fairy tale cottage, located on a charming alley, is very quiet despite being in the very heart of the city. The alley is half a block away from the Hyde Street cable car line, which runs between Ghirardelli Square on the Bay and the famous stores and theaters around Union Square. Multiple bus lines intersect streets surrounding the house, which also is within an easy stroll of grocery stores, pharmacies, wine shops, boutiques, wonderful restaurants and cafés, and a multitude of coffee shops. Walkers will love being able to step out the front door and head to Chinatown, North Beach, Fisherman’s Wharf, the Financial District, Downtown-Union Square, the Marina District and Marina Green, the Presidio, and Crissy Field. Incredibly convenient for taking a stroll or bus to watch sailing events on the Bay.
Charming restaurants and small businesses cluster on leafy Hyde Street between Jackson and Union Streets, and Polk Street is crowded with unusual boutiques, antique shops, trendy restaurants and night spots. A mini French quarter has sprung up around Polk and Green, where you'll find La Folie, THE restaurant where French chefs eat when visiting San Francisco; La Boulange, a traditional café-boulangerie; a French antiques store, and several French-influenced gift and home décor shops.
Russian Hill is a residential neighborhood with pockets of restaurants and shops. The views from the hills are ddazzling. The neighborhood got its name when gold rushers found seven Cyrillic-inscribed gravestones at the top of the hill. Consensus on the identity of the Russian men buried there -- they were reputed to be anything from sailors to fur trappers -- was never reached, the gravestones disappeared in the late 1800s, and the Russian influence has long since dissipated.
