SOLD! Congrats to J&N!
Congratulations to my clients J&N for landing this great condo on Russian Hill! The views from this home are truly spectacular. You can see North Beach, Downtown, Coit Tower, and the Bay Bridge light show all from the living room sofa! I know they will be very happy in their new home.
This lovely condo is located near San Francisco Landmark #46 - House of the Flag.
Landmark 46 House of the Flag 1652-1656 Taylor Between Broadway and Vallejo Russian Hill Built 1860, 1903
This First Bay Area Tradition style house is located at the southeast corner of Vallejo and Taylor. It is best known for being dramatically rescued from the 1906 earthquake fire. As the fire approached, the occupant, a flag collector, raised the American flag on a staff beside the house. A company of soldiers spied it from below and were inspired to charge up the hill to fight the fire. It is reported that they found a bathtub full of water, sand from a nearby construction project, and soda siphons to squirt into hard-to-reach places. The soldiers are credited with saving the house and protecting the rest of the hill.
