Visit San Francisco, and stay in our stunning, panoramic view home, on one of the highest hills in Russian Hill. Just a few blocks above the vibrant neighborhood of North Beach, right above Mason and San Francisco’s famous cable car, and next door to the Ina Coolbirth Park, (named after California’s first poet laureate), our home is a large spacious living space with a gracious living room and fireplace, dining room, brand new kitchen, family/TV room, with incredible panoramic views from all rooms and from the large patio.

Our location is within walking distance to intimate Russian Hill restaurants as well as the coffee shops, restaurants, bars, galleries, museums, and churches of North Beach and Washington Square.

We are an easy taxi ride to Union Square and world class shopping, the Ferry Building and the Slanted Door, and the new de Young Museum; or you can venture out indeed all over San Francisco to experience the hottest new spots in SOMA, Cow Hollow, or the mission district.

For the last 20 years, my husband has served as Chancellor of two statewide higher educational systems: the University of West Virginia System, in Charleston, West Virginia; and the Tennessee Board of Regents, in Nashville, Tennessee. He is a very gentle and gracious man who cares deeply about education. Yet with state resources strained to the limit these days, public education is a highly politicized enterprise, with increasing competition for decreasing dollars. So after each of his quarterly board meetings, I would whisk Charles out to San Francisco for a little break: to restore and re-charge, to rest and read, to walk the wonderful streets of San Francisco and to eat in grand restaurants in the City.
The result is this apartment. It is such a perfect spot, with its panoramic views, elegant interiors, and central location: it has become our home away from home, beckoning us from our busy lives, something we look forward to and truly embrace in our lives.
If you are looking for an opportunity for just the right place, to get a break, restore and re-charge, and still be in the center of a vibrant city with all it has to offer, this could be the place for you.
