Location, location, location. This apartment is located in a quiet building on a residential street in North Beach, just one block away from the famous Columbus Avenue where you can hear the melodic sounds of Italian being spoken, sample the flavorful dishes from various regions of Italy served up in its plentiful restaurants, sip a cappuccino at its coffee houses and visit the spots that literary figures from the Beat Generation enjoyed, making this lively street a feast for the senses.
The roof top deck has spectacular views of Coit Tower, Saints Peter and Paul Cathedral, the Bay and Alcatraz and the hills of Russian Hill neighborhood.
The apartment features two comfortable bedrooms with elegant furniture. Two full bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen will make you feel like home. The open kitchen faces the living-dining area. The roof top deck with spectacular views of the city is shared with the other four units in the building, however it is never crowded and always fun to have a glass of wine or grill some meat with the barbecue.

Location, location, location. This property is located in the best area of San Francisco: North Beach within walking distance to the best San Francisco has to offer. This property also has a nice rooftop deck with amazing views of the city and the bay.
There is so much colorful history bound up in North Beach, and so much going on, it's hard for even the most cynical resident not to appreciate the crackling mix of restaurants, bars, coffee shops, bakeries, nightclubs, and book shops. The real gems in North Beach are the places that you hardly notice when you're passing by. If they have an attention-getting exterior, and especially if they have a 'greeter' or hired musician out front, you can be pretty sure that they're trying so hard to get you inside because they can't compete based on quality or reputation.
Before the augmentation of the coastline, North Beach was actually just that - the beach at the northernmost edge of San Francisco, known then as the Barbary Coast. Italian immigrants came in large numbers during the later 1800s, and began setting up the scene that is reflected in today's version of the neighborhood.
How To Get There: Walking up Grant Street and Chinatown from Union Square is the most common way for visitors to reach North Beach. The 20 and 41 Muni bus lines from Sacramento Street at Davis, just west of Embarcadero Center, also go directly there. Parking around North Beach can be tricky, but it's usually easier if you overshoot and look for a space around the northern end of Columbus, closer the Chestnut. There is also a parking garage on Vallejo Street between Powell and Stockton.
