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.

Lottie,

I have always enjoyed this area, when we used to spend so much time in San Francisco.  I love how retail lives in harmony with surrounding residential giving each neighborhood great character. A

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.

Hi Grant Schneider - our neighborhoods break San Francisco down into friendly small chunks, each with its own feel.

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.

Thinking of Nob Hill brings back fond memories. When I lived in SF, I dated Ann Maria who lived in Nob Hill. She was a true love that got away.

Your post describes this area so well for she lived just down the hill where the Hill truly takes its soul from. cheers cvc

Hi Curtis Van Carter - isn't it interesting how a picture, or a few words, can bring memories flooding back into our consciousness? I'm glad your memories are fond ones.

Hi Lottie:

I always enjoy your posts about SF neighborhoods, whether I have visited them or not. When I read the title I had to wonder - is there a part of Nob Hill that is NOT trendy?

Great photos and overview...I am ready for another visit (we will be there sometime later this year, just not sure when yet - you can bet I will look you up!).

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS - Nob Hill can be grand or down-home in feel; it can blend into Chinatown or North Beach or the Tenderloin. 

Please do let me know when you plan to be here; it would be a pleasure meeting you.

Hi Lottie Kendall - You continue to post wonderful sites to see and different parts of San Francisco to meet everyone's taste and life style!

The iconic landmark buildings of SF on Nob Hill would certainly interest someone like me! It would be so much fun to have you as my Real Estate Agent. As a friend, I would relish the time I had with you because no matter where you'd meet me, we'd have a really good time.
