INTERIOR LIVING SPACE
A flight of interior stairs deposits visitors to 1826 Taylor Street’s open central hall. Adorned with wainscoting and possessing no fewer than three closets, this hallway serves as a main artery for the unit, stretching from two front rooms — a large bedroom and a family room — past a second bedroom and a full bath and half bath before ending at the living and dining rooms and the kitchen. The front rooms both feature bow-fronted bay windows with city and San Francisco Bay views. The family room, which connects to the second bedroom via pocket doors, has built-in bookshelves and a decorative fireplace.
From here we move onto bedroom two and then down the hallway past the remodeled baths to the living and dining, which both boast panoramic, almost indescribable views of San Francisco and the bay stretching from Fisherman’s Wharf past Coit Tower, North Beach and the downtown skyline before ending at the Bay Bridge. Add to this the beautiful leaded glass of the living room’s built-in shelving unit, its box beam ceiling, the dining room’s large wine cooler and the wainscoting that travels the perimeter of living and dining and then enter the kitchen, where you will find marble countertops and high-end stainless steel appliances by Bosch, Liebherr and Premier, then pause at the laundry and storage space with a stacked washer and dryer before returning to the hallway to sample 1826 Taylor Street’s hidden treasure, it’s shared rooftop deck.
Blessed with truly incredible views that stretch almost the entire width of the bay and include Alcatraz, Mount Tamalpais, Angel Island, Mount Diablo and the Bay Bridge, the rooftop deck of 1824-1828 is shared by three living units and includes two separate outdoor dining areas and extensive decking. It is accessible via a stairway off of 1826’s main interior hallway.

About 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. Browse our selection of Russian Hill homes for sale.
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.
