Russian Hill Real Estate
Adjacent to the trendy San Francisco neighborhoods of Cow Hollow and the Marina – and directly north of illustrious Nob Hill – is Russian Hill, one of the city’s oldest and most distinguished neighborhoods. Gorgeous views, a central location (great for commuting), and an idyllic setting make this a popular community for San Francisco’s well-heeled set.
Affluent and largely residential, Russian Hill is elegant and filled with historically significant buildings designed by such prominent architects as Willis Polk, Joseph Worcester, and Julian Morgan. A less acknowledged, but equally recognizable building is The Summit at 999 Green Street. Also known as the Eichler Summit, this mid-century modern high-rise condominium was built by Joseph Eichler in the mid-1960s and has the reputation of being one of the most stylish and luxurious condos in San Francisco.
Russian Hill is an interesting community, full of homes that are on the National Register of Historic Places, beautiful parks, and even an active neighborhood association. A quirky layout, complete with staircases, one-way alleys, and pedestrian-only walkways gives many homes and gardens in Russian Hill a secluded, secret-garden feel; but charming restaurants, stylish shops, public transportation, and the bustling city lifestyle are only a short stroll away.
