Nob Hill Penthouse Perfection

850 Powell #902


Immaculately custom-renovated, two Bedroom, two and one-half Bath (approx.) 1,900 sq. ft. Penthouse atop The Francesca with iconic views of Alcatraz, SF Bay and Russian Hill.

The Foyer opens to a showcase Living Room highlighted by bespoke steel and walnut-clad shelving and fireplace. Large windows deliver views of Russian Hill, Alcatraz, Angel and Treasure Islands. Overhead, a sea of light fixtures illuminates the paneled high ceiling.

The Dining Room enjoys city views: bright by day, electric by night. A custom armoire offers storage and wine refrigeration. The modern Kitchen boasts an open-plan, chic aesthetic, large island and topline appliances. A side Balcony provides fresh air.

The marvelous Master Suite is replete with high ceilings, large window and dual bespoke closets. Substantial cabinetry, frosted glass and full-slab marble in the windowed Master Bath showcase a spectacular tub, large Walk-In Shower and Water Closet. Radiant heated floors offer daily spa-like luxury.

Opposite, a Second Bedroom is highlighted by a wall of exposed brick. A windowed En-Suite Bath reveals a surprise Alcatraz view!

A Laundry Closet and Powder Room complete this dynamic floor plan. Advanced infrastructure improvements include power-operated solar and black-out shades on northern windows, sophisticated lighting, double-paned bedroom windows and an in-home Yamaha/Panasonic media system.

With an elegant Lobby of architecture reminiscent of San Francisco’s bygone century, The Francesca remains one of Nob Hill’s well-maintained, best-managed & most-admired doorman buildings. Ideally located where the Powell and California Cable Car Lines connect, the Francesca boasts a WalkScore of 99 so residents may enjoy the nearby Michelin-rated restaurants, and the myriad shopping, fitness and guest accommodation amenities of the adjacent Fairmont as well as the nearby Mark Hopkins and Huntington Hotels.
