The Trendy Part of Nob Hill, CA

By
Real Estate Agent with Compass CA DRE# 01215160

Nob Hill is one of the iconic landmarks of San Francisco. With the California Street cable car running up the hill from the Financial District to Van Ness Avenue, you can arrive at one of the famed hotels in the city, The Fairmont, Huntington, or Mark Hopkins. Grace Cathedral also commands the hilltop, as does the Masonic Auditorium, a private club, some residences and an urban city park. This is visitor mecca.

However, if you head down the hill just a few blocks west, you'll find a very different vibe, one with more of a neighborhood feel, and close to numerous restaurants, clubs, grocery stores, hardware stores, nail salons, hair salons and coffee shops.This is where you'll meet and greet your neighbors as you meet them walking about shopping. You can join the lines at the renown Swan Oyster Depot, or enjoy meals at many ethnic restaurants--middle Eastern, Italian, Thai, Vietnamese, Mexican, Korean, Chinese, Japanese. Enjoy crepes, cookies, and traditional American brunches. The venerable House of Prime Rib (established in 1949) is close, too, and a fine German restaurant a handful of blocks north.

Contraband Coffee, Larkin & Sacramento, SF

sunset from Sacramento St, Nob Hill, SFThis is a neighborhood where you'll find a mix of apartment buildings, 3- and 4-unit condos or Tenancy-in-Common buildings, with an occasional co-op building.

This is where you'll find Edwardian condos, built not many years after the 1906 earthquake and fire, like the one at 1561 Sacramento Street along with a variety of other styles, some fairly new, yet blending into the neighborhood and sharing the vibe.

Here one can catch a magnificent sunset, or enjoy a quiet moment in a backyard retreat.

As of yesterday, there were only 15 condos for sale in Nob Hill:

1 - one-bedroom

8 - two-bedrooms

5 - three-bedrooms

1 - four-bedroom

If you are looking for your special place, or if life plans make this a good time for you to sell, give me a call. Let's talk.

Hi Lottie Kendall - This is a fabulous report on the local scene and vibe of the Nob Hill neighborhood. I love your take on this.  Nob Hill is an area that sticks in your mind if you have ever been to the city.  Years and years ago, my husband and I had a drink at the Mark Hopkins Hotel.  I always felt that San Francisco had a midwest or eastern feel to it because of the different neighborhoods and the layout.

I have been there once and recall it being a very trendy place.  I love the area, but I haven't been back for a very long time.  If I am ever able to retire, I would like to take a longer trip there.

Lottie, many years ago I attended the NAR convention (prior to AR) and we had dinner at a trendy restaurant I think that was in Nob Hill.   There was a muscian that brought his band.   He looked homeless to me (and the restaurant was expensive), but one of my friends knew who he was.

Hi Nina Hollander - since I live near Van Ness Avenue, where Pacific Heights, Russian and Nob Hills come together, I often walk up and over Nob Hill and revel in the uniqueness just a few blocks bring.  It's a great cardio workout, too--I don't go to any of the many gyms around!

Michael Jacobs - every few blocks brings a change of scene, on Nob Hill and elsewhere. We often dine or have a simple supper at one of the two restaurants at the corner of Jackson and Hyde, and never tire of watching the Powell-Hyde cable car swing around the corner, bells ringing. I might pop in to the little market on the 3rd corner to grab a bottle of mineral water, while my husband goes for an It's-It.

Hi Sheri Sperry - MCNE® - I imagine that drink was at the Top of the Mark, with its stunning views of The City. My husband held a small surprise birthday party for me there a few years ago - fun being a tourist in my own town.

You don't need to wait until you retire, Brian England - take a mini-vaca and come for a visit. You'd love the hiking, exploring neighborhoods, and seeing all the hilltop tennis courts in various city parks.

Joan Cox - I think I remember when you came here for the NAR convention a number of years ago. That was before we were in the habit of arranging AR meet ups, I think. Come again!

Lottie, this was further back - maybe 15 years ago.    This one I came with 3 of my REALTOR friends, and we had a blast.  Hootie & Blowfish was the entertainment.

This is such an easy area in which to live, Ron and Alexandra Seigel - walk to work in the financial district; come home to chill before heading a block or so away to dine and shop. Life is good here, indeed.

San Francisco has so many delightful neighborhoods, that it's difficult to choose just one.  Just this morning, I was telling my grandson, I'd like to make a trip to China Town.  I haven't been there in years!

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat - maybe we'll have some dim sum together, or a cup of tea. Chinatown is on the slopes of Nob Hill, to the northeast of the summit. Not far from here at all.

I try to give market data along with anecdotes, to give a feel for the market - moving fast or slow, why live in a certain area, what's to enjoy nearby, etc.
