1244 Washington St

This is the home you see in commercials—the envy-inducing open-floor penthouse palace that pairs California idealism with timeless architectural elegance and views that make San Francisco a global gold standard.

1244 Washington is two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,755 square feet of pure perfection. Perched atop a striking Spanish Edwardian on a cable-car-classic street in Nob Hill, this penthouse features unadulterated views from the living room, dining room, kitchen, library, and solarium. From a massive 765-ft exclusive-use deck for your very own private garden, too: wake up every day looking over Coit Tower, downtown, the Bay Bridge, Treasure Island, and more. A plethora of windows crown the free-flowing interior with sunlight during the day and invite starry skies and these twinkling cityscapes in at night. The solarium has a flexible sunshade that makes even rainy days feel utterly breathtaking, and offers a sleek transition from interior to outdoor deck—perfect for hosting lavish dinner parties at which your guests might actually leave the kitchen in favor of venturing out to enjoy those incredible views. For even more of the city, make your way up to the shared roof deck from which you can see the Golden Gate Bridge.

This penthouse also enjoys a private wine cellar and three storage rooms to ensure you have all the space you need in a compact and bustling city. Leased parking will hold your car, but feel free to jump on the cable car outside if you’re feeling more free—a convenience you might forget exists while inside the home given how absolutely insulated it is from the nearby urban ambiance. The kitchen is bright and airy, freshly remodeled with premier appliances and well-designed surfaces to satisfy the whims of even the most cosmopolitan chef, and there’s ample space to store fresh wares from the City’s famed local farmers’ markets. The living room has a fireplace for cozy nights and a dazzling display of windows, and makes way to a library nook perfect for curling up with a great book. There’s a washer and dryer, there are remodeled bathrooms, there are lovely hardwood floors, there’s a charming brick-arched courtyard downstairs that feels distinctly European—and a tightly knit community of nine condos that call this hidden gem their home.

And of course, there’s the entirety of San Francisco right outside your impressive gate. This city is much more accessible than one might think: North Beach, Russian Hill, and Polk Gulch are less than a 10-minute walk, while downtown and the Embarcadero are under 25. 1244 Washington offers peak luxury, grand living in one of the best cities in the world.
