Welcome to Nob Hill Place, a gated private lane atop Nob Hill. This meticulously renovated and maintained full floor condominium is steps from the majestic Grace Cathedral, Huntington Park and the cable car, for a quick commute to downtown. This location is just minutes away from some of the best San Francisco has to offer.
The building was designed by renowned San Francisco architect, Willis Polk, the creative master behind many of the Bay Area’s most noteworthy buildings, including the Palace of Fine Arts and Filoli Estate. Sophisticated architectural details define this elegant home, which features high ceilings, crown moldings, and restored hardwood floors. The centerpiece is the beautiful living room with a wood-burning fireplace and an expansive window-line providing architectural views of the neighborhood.

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 accessible 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. All but destroyed in the fire of 1906, Nob Hill homes remain the most prestigious of San Francisco addresses.
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. The Cathedral administers an array of engaging programs, including evening Yoga, and brings inspiration through the many musical concerts it hosts throughout the year. Also on the grounds is an outdoor meditation labyrinth, where visitors may traverse the garden in quiet reflection.
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!
