Entering the opulent lobby of 850 Powell, with its arched colonnades and corbeled beams, is like going back in time to the golden age of Nob Hill. Built in 1923 by three of the most renowned architects of the day, the Francesca remains one of the City’s true gems. One of only 39 residences in this historic building, Unit 403 is a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom condo that has been beautifully remodeled to marry classic San Francisco elegance with the comfort and ease of modern living.

As you enter through the unit’s ornately carved wood door, you’re greeted by a gracious foyer large enough to serve as a sitting room. Beyond it, a spacious living room beckons with high, beamed ceilings; a fireplace; and a large picture window with spectacular views of downtown and the bay. Built-in bookcases and richly finished hardwood floors lend this room traditional warmth and character. With its coffered ceilings, brass sconces, and molded chair rails, the formal dining room offers an elegant space for entertaining. It shares the living room’s impressive views, adding the sparkle of city lights to candlelit dinners. The chef’s kitchen features high-end wood cabinets, marble counters, a designer tile backsplash, and top-of-the-line appliances including double wall ovens and a Wolf gas range. A broad island welcomes guests to sip and chat as you cook.

The master bedroom includes a walk-in closet and large windows: one with cushioned window seats over storage cabinets, and the other a sunny bay that’s perfectly sized for a loveseat or pair of reading chairs. The gorgeously remodeled en-suite bathroom has abundant light and counter space. Two additional bedrooms and two more full bathrooms complete the residences 2,460 s.q ft. floor plan, making this a comfortable family home and a welcoming retreat for guests. All three bedrooms are thoughtfully separated from the living and dining space, so they’re peaceful and secluded even when you’re entertaining.

With only 39 units, 850 Powell is among downtown San Francisco’s most exceptional properties.

The Francesca is perfectly situated on iconic Nob Hill, across from the Fairmont Hotel and with the beloved San Francisco cable cars running along Powell Street at its feet. Elegant and glamorous, Nob Hill is home to five legendary hotels, Huntington Park, and one of San Francisco’s most iconic landmark structures: Grace Cathedral. Perched on the commanding heights made accessible in the 1870s by the California Street cable car that runs through the heart of the neighborhood, Nob Hill is home to old San Francisco. The descendants of San Francisco’s founding families still frequent their private clubs here including the University Club, Pacific Union Club, Olympic Club, Wingtip Club, and Battery Club.

The neighborhood remains the one of most affluent and desirable in all of San Francisco with its historic yet vibrant character. With its stunning Beaux Arts-style pre-war luxury buildings decorated with wedding-cake facades, the magnificent palace-like Fairmont Hotel, and iconic Grace Cathedral, Nob Hill is truly San Francisco’s own version of Paris and the scene of many famous movie and television filmings over the decades.

The heart of Nob Hill is Huntington Park and its iconic 10-foot tall Fountain of Tortoises. Shady benches around the classic urban square provide a welcome rest for those who hike up the hill, and a playground is a hidden gem. In addition to its acclaimed world-class restaurants like Top of the Mark and the Big 4 Restaurant, charming neighborhood restaurants dot the area. A few blocks down, Union Square offers world-class shopping, dining, and theater.

Nob Hill is fabulously located in the heart of the City in the midst of world-renowned hotels, boutiques, theaters, and restaurants, as well as Chinatown, North Beach, the Theater District, the Financial District, and SOMA’s booming technology center, perfect for enjoying a sophisticated yet comfortable urban lifestyle close to San Francisco’s world-class cultural, dining, entertainment, and business attractions.

This stunningly remodeled condo offers a unique chance to experience classic luxury in one of The City’s signature historic neighborhoods.
