In a special corner of Nob Hill, the old ways of San Francisco live on with graceful architecture and lovely rows of shops with plate glass windows. From this top-floor TIC apartment you can survey the street through bay windows ready to be thrown open to adventure. At night you'll hear the occasional sound of a fog horn or cable car bell. By day, the Wild Parrots of neighboring Telegraph Hill can swoop and soar before settling into the tree just outside your front door. On the next block, Le Beau Grocers always seems to have just what you need, while Trader Joe's is just down the street for larger shopping expeditions. Beautiful and practical details include an elevator, view roof deck and extra storage for your boxes, boots and skis.
