This elegant Russian Hill condo is nestled in a classic 1910 Edwardian building in one of the most desirable pockets of this iconic neighborhood. Once known as the "Paris block" of Russian Hill because many buildings mirrored Parisian styling, this historic Green St. locale is a stone’s throw from various noted architectural treasures, including one of only two remaining octagon-shaped homes in the Bay Area.
Beautifully remodeled with hardwood floors throughout, this corner unit, set in a boutique 14-unit building, maintains period character with classic detailing and old-world charm. The spacious layout offers flexibility – enjoy it as a two-bedroom or a one-bedroom with formal dining room. With high, coved and box beam ceilings and large windows, the home is bright and airy throughout with an abundance of natural light.
This exquisite home features a living room with a wood burning fireplace and a gourmet chef’s kitchen with pantry, creating the perfect setting for entertaining with family and friends. The large front bedroom boasts a Bay window, nicely sized closet with cedar flooring and is adjacent to the spacious, remodeled bathroom. The gorgeous formal dining room and living room, accented by lovely moldings and built-ins, are separated by pocket doors, allowing for maximum flexibility. Off the generously sized kitchen with pantry is a huge walk-in custom closet! An in-unit washer/dryer, large, private storage room, a lovely shared garden, and one-car garage parking complete the home’s many amenities.
Anchored in one of the city’s most historic areas and surrounded by over a dozen landmark buildings, this coveted Russian Hill location is also close to the lively sidewalks of North Beach, Hyde and Polk Streets, lined with cafes, shops, and grocers.

Russian Hill is one of San Francisco’s most sophisticated neighborhoods and is one of the city’s original “Seven Hills,” with its name tied back to the discovery by Gold Rush settlers of Russian tombstones in the 1800s.
Tourists famously know the neighborhood for Lombard Street, hailed “the Crookedest Street in the World,” designed with eight sharp switchbacks in order to reduce the hill’s naturally steep grade. Being home to the steepest grades in San Francisco also provides unparalleled views of the Bay Bridge to the Golden Gate Bridge that can be glimpsed from pedestrian stairways, adding to the neighborhood’s easy charm.
The area is home to a pedigree of longtime residents whose families have lived in Russian Hill for over a century. More than 20 percent of the population is over age 65 with the remainder of residents a blend of young lawyers, bankers, and entrepreneurs with a low percentage of families with children. You can find original mid-rise apartment buildings and Victorian and Edwardian homes set back from the streets with gardened and well-landscaped lots, a key characteristic from a previous era.
Although there are many large tourist attractions in the neighborhood including Ghirardelli Square, Lombard Street, and the San Francisco Art Institute, Russian Hill is a collection of much smaller and more intimate spots. With the Hyde-Powell cable car running down the center of Russian Hill, locals and tourists can easily access ice cream parlors, coffee shops, cafes, ethnic restaurants, antique shops, and notably, the birthplace of the Irish Coffee at the Buena Vista Café.
