Floor Plan


There's hardly a neighborhood that compares with Russian Hill, with its mesmerizing views, heart-stopping hairpin turns, and sheer historical grandeur. Locals enjoy the hillside garden climbs, the exquisite tiny parks, and the classic ice cream parlor found at the corner of Union and Hyde. There is a delicate European flair to many of the boutiques and restaurants found along the lushly green streets of Jackson, Union, and Hyde. Green and Polk Streets offer exceptional international cuisine from French to Italian to Vietnamese, you can't go wrong in this vibrant stretch of city. If shopping is on your list, don't miss the many delightful boutiques dotting Polk Street between Union and Broadway. There is a tremendous spread of possibilities when it comes to housing in Russian Hill. From turn-of-the-century backyard cottages, to lush million-dollar homes, to hilltop town houses and condos with mind-blowing Bay views - there is something for all sensibilities. The architectural influences in Russian Hill reach back to classic form - from Spanish Colonial, to Mission Revival, to Italianate, and Arts and Crafts, and beyond. Russian Hill remains a very walkable urban landscape despite its hilly tendency. The Financial District and Civic Center are easily within reach. And if your smart you'll occasionally ride the cable car home, on a monthly pass from SFMUNI.
