Features

Perched high up on the western slope of Telegraph Hill, 41 Castle Street is a heaven-sent gem for connoisseurs of urban culture and of San Francisco’s rich history. This magnificently remodeled single-family masterpiece is not for home-shoppers looking for mass market appeal. 41 Castle Street is elegant and rare, and perhaps most of all, it is timeless and strikingly beautiful. It is all these things, without compromising comfort, utility, and functionality.

Unabashedly Bohemian in spirit, 41 Castle Street is like no other panoramic view home available in San Francisco today. In the words of its designer, “it embraces you in magic”. There is no way for me to adequately describe that feeling of warmth and harmony in words. But I am confident you know (or will know) exactly what I mean, after you have visited the home, and have been embraced by the magic.  41 Castle Street is so much more than the sum of its parts, but here are a few bullet points of the property highlights.

  • History meets modernity in this lovingly remodeled, sophisticated Four-Story home located on a quaint, tree-lined street in the heart of Telegraph Hill
  • Opulent stone counter tops and fireplace surrounds, top-of-the-line appliances and fixtures, hardwood floors, and striking architectural detail throughout
  • Unobstructed Panoramic Views to the west and north, which include the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands, Coit Tower, the Bay, and the enchanting city lights of Russian Hill, Nob Hill, and North Beach
  • Four bedrooms, four plus bathrooms, 3170 square feet on a 20’ x 58.75’ lot (per tax records), with abundant storage and closet space
  • Ten rooms total with two car parking (on a car elevator, no less)
  • Multiple west facing walk-out panoramic view decks, and a west garden
  • Immediate access to the cafes, shops, and restaurants of Jackson Square, North Beach and Russian Hill; a stone’s throw from Downtown; and an easy commute to the freeways south and north.

    If you are considering the purchase of a single-family home or condominium on the North End of town, or even in the Mission / Noe Valley / Bernal Heights, you owe it to yourself to seriously consider this spectacular home.

Neighborhood


Telegraph Hill

Telegraph Hill is one the city's oldest neighborhoods, inhabited long before the gold rush by the men who worked on the nearby waterfront. Today Telegraph Hill is home to the largest concentration of pre-1870 buildings in San Francisco, some of which predate the gold rush. The neighborhood still bears witness to those glory days. As ships unloaded their cargo, a quarry at the top of Telegraph Hill supplied the rocks they needed for ballast, and today the exposed cliff face above Broadway remains one of the neighborhood's defining features.

Telegraph Hill is famed for its Italianate homes, Carpenter Gothic, and charming cottages with their steeply pitched roofs and ornate wooden scroll work. Those examples of old San Francisco are joined by newer additions including modernist homes by noted architects Richard Neutra, Gardner Dailey, and William Wurster.

Coit Tower, named after the heiress who donated the funds to honor San Francisco's firefighters, dominates the skyline of this residential community just above Chinatown and North Beach. While steep, the slopes of Telegraph Hill lead to the financial district, Fisherman's Wharf, and the waterfront, making this an extremely walkable neighborhood. The Filbert Street Steps, one of the many wooden walkways that crisscross this community, provides a pathway up the hill from Levi Plaza. Fortified with a meal from Il Fornaio, climbers can take the steps to Coit Tower, past flowering community gardens, and towering trees colonized by rowdy flocks of escaped parrots now gone feral. The view from the top of Coit Tower draws tourists from around the world.

North Beach

At the center of any description of San Francisco you'll find North Beach. Beginning at the juncture of Broadway and Columbus, North Beach spreads north to the bay, and down to Telegraph Hill. This most authentic San Francisco district is home to a vibrant Italian-American community. It also has the distinction of being the spiritual home of the beat poets who rose to fame in the 50s and 60s.

This exciting stretch of city brings a devil-may-care attitude to city life. While tourists thumbing their guidebooks mix with frat house style revelers each weekend, the real North Beach, and those who call it home, exists in the delightful hillside streets surrounding. Those lucky enough to live here, enjoy evening's awe-inspiring views from hilltop patios in the rows of exquisite family homes that line the elevated blocks.

It's in the dimly lit old-fashioned neighborhood haunts where one can still find the authentic life of North Beach. City Lights, the infamous rebel poet bookstore, is where Alan Ginsgerg's HOWL was first published. Some of the most extraordinary shopping in the city can be done along Grant Street in the upscale boutiques. And above all, don't miss your chance to have some of the best Italian food this side of the Amalfi Coast. A remarkable dining opportunity at your fingertips thanks to a history of immigrants who made this area home in the 1920's and 30s.

The "beach" in North Beach is no longer there. There was a time where the tides of the bay lapped up against Taylor and Francisco Street. Today that waterfront has long since been replaced by 19th century landfill, known now as the Barbary Coast.
