Location, location, location. This apartment is located in a quiet building on a residential street in North Beach, just one block away from the famous Columbus Avenue where you can hear the melodic sounds of Italian being spoken, sample the flavorful dishes from various regions of Italy served up in its plentiful restaurants, sip a cappuccino at its coffee houses and visit the spots that literary figures from the Beat Generation enjoyed, making this lively street a feast for the senses.
The roof top deck has spectacular views of Coit Tower, Saints Peter and Paul Cathedral, the Bay and Alcatraz and the hills of Russian Hill neighborhood.
The apartment features two comfortable bedrooms with elegant furniture. Two full bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen will make you feel like home. The open kitchen faces the living-dining area. The roof top deck with spectacular views of the city is shared with the other four units in the building, however it is never crowded and always fun to have a glass of wine or grill some meat with the barbecue.
