Alex Kaufman Presents: 1601 Pacific Avenue #203
Beautiful 2bed/2.5ba Townhouse Condo in Russian/Nob Hill
$1,370,000

Features

This beautifully finished townhouse condo is located on the cusp of both Nob Hill and Russian Hill. Located on Pacific Avenue at Polk Street; the home is within blocks of an amazing plethora of restaurants, coffee shops, bars, and grocery stores. Easy access to Polk, Union, Hyde & Chestnut Streets.

The layout places the living space above the bedrooms, so no upstairs neighbors to disturb you in the bedrooms. A quiet master bedroom with en suite bath feels private and removed from the city lifestyle. 

A gorgeous kitchen featuring a six burner range, deep sink, and bar top island with wine refrigerator flows into a spacious living/dining and an adjoining powder room. A perfect layout for entertaining. 

The building features a fun communal roof deck with Golden Gate Bridge, Bay and City views.

Townhouse Features:

Russian Hill

Dazzling views, the hairpin turns down brick-paved Lombard Street, and the Hyde-Powell cable cars make iconic Russian Hill a favorite with tourists. Locals savor the steep garden walks, the tiny pocket parks, and Swensen's Ice Cream on the corner of Union and Hyde streets. Despite the steep streets, Russian Hill is a highly walkable urban enclave, with many residents able to commute to work on foot.

Restaurants and boutiques along the tree-lined Hyde Street between Jackson and Union streets exude European charm. Polk and Green streets boast international cuisine — from the German- and Austrian-inspired cooking at Leopold’s to the French La Boulangerie de Polk and the Italian specialty wine store Biondivino.

Housing ranges from charming, century-old backyard cottages to multimillion-dollar mansions, luxury hilltop townhomes, and condos with panoramic views of San Francisco Bay. Homes in the neighborhood are built in Italianate, Spanish Colonial, Mission Revival, Neo-Georgian influences, and Arts and Crafts architectural styles.

Nob Hill

Exclusive and elegant, Nob Hill is home to some of the grandest mansions and most historic hotels one can find in San Francisco. Nob Hill is part of an enclave made assessable in the 1870s by the addition of cable cars climbing up California Street through the heart of the neighborhood. The area is considered the center of old San Francisco, where even today descendants of some of the original founding families of San Francisco keep continued memberships at renowned private clubs, including the infamous Bohemian Club.

All but destroyed in the fire of 1906, Nob Hill homes remain the most prestigious of San Francisco addresses. Old money is on display here, making itself seen through the extravagantly adorned buildings that line every street.Huntington Park is certainly the heart of Nob Hill. Home to the iconic 10-foot Fountain of Tortoises, families enjoy congregating on its shady expanses to take in a bit of respite following the hike up the hill. There is also a children's playground which is second to none.

The spiritual center of the community is found in the impressive stone architecture of Grace Cathedral. A Liberal bastion, the Cathedral administers an array of social justice programs, and brings inspiration through the many musical concerts it hosts throughout the year. Also on the grounds is an outdoor meditation labyrinth. Here visitors traverse the garden in silence as part of a meditative reflection on their own lives and the lives of others.

The neighborhood of Nob Hill remains a very walkable area despite its many steep avenues. It remains an urban oasis for residents while never being too far from the action of downtown. Perfectly situated it remains bounded by the excitement of Chinatown, the thrilling nightlife of Polk Street, and the upscale shopping of Union Square. Nob Hill is a walking commute from downtown and the financial district. And for those not interested in walking at the end of the day, MUNI provides monthly cable car passes. Now that's traveling in style!
