Russian Hill lies just south of Fisherman’s Wharf, with stunning views of the harbor and iconic city skyline. Russian Hill real estate consists of many refurbished Victorians, which perch along the steep hillside. Here one finds Lombard Street, known as the world’s crookedest street, which snakes down the eastern side of the hill and is lined with gorgeous gardens. This street is popular with tourists, but the rest of Russian Hill is out of the regular tourist loop, and consequently the neighborhood is relatively uncrowded. Definitely an upscale choice, Russian Hill is more down to earth than some of the truly opulent neighborhoods, like Presidio Heights, a bit further west.
Real Estate in Russian Hill
From this colorful hill, the views are spectacular: the Golden Gate and Alcatraz to the north, and Coit Tower on nearby Telegraph Hill. As Russian Hill real estate gives way to exclusive Nob Hill, the buildings become increasingly taller and more upscale, and the communities blend to offer many wonderful, distinctive home options. Expect spacious condos and unique single-family homes with outdoor spaces to take full advantage of the breathtaking views, all in a prestigious neighborhood offering low crime and a very high quality of life.
Neighborhoods like Russian Hill are what make San Francisco the very livable city that it is. The hill is in the midst of the city’s premier attractions, but remains a peaceful residential enclave, with locally favored restaurants and cafes.
