ARCHITECTURAL HISTORY

In 1913, renowned architect Frederick Herman Meyer designed this exquisite Single Family Home, located in Prime Downtown, near the border of Nob Hill.

Meyer was born in San Francisco in 1876 and had no formal architectural training; he started work in 1896 as a draftsman with builders Campbell and Pettus. He opened his own office in 1908 in the Humboldt Bank Building, which he designed with Smith O'Brien and which had been rebuilt after the San Francisco Earthquake. His residential designs included single family homes and apartment buildings in Downtown, Nob Hill, Russian Hill, Pacific Heights and Presidio Heights.

This Rare Townhouse Style Home has Four Levels of Grandeur. Architectural Details are intact and include Hardwood Floors, Original Moldings, Wainscoting and Leaded Glass Windows.

Neighborhood

NOB HILL

Exclusive and elegant, Nob Hill is home to some of the grandest mansions and most historic hotels one can find in San Francisco. Nob Hill is part of an enclave made accessable in the 1870s by the addition of cable cars climbing up California Street through the heart of the neighborhood. The area is considered the center of old San Francisco, where even today descendants of some of the original founding families of San Francisco keep continued memberships at renowned private clubs, including the infamous Bohemian Club. All but destroyed in the fire of 1906, Nob Hill homes remain the most prestigious of San Francisco addresses.

Old money is on display here, making itself seen through the extravagantly adorned buildings that line every street.Huntington Park is certainly the heart of Nob Hill. Home to the iconic 10-foot Fountain of Tortoises, families enjoy congregating on its shady expanses to take in a bit of respite following the hike up the hill. There is also a children's playground which is second to none. The spiritual center of the community is found in the impressive stone architecture of Grace Cathedral. A Liberal bastion, the Cathedral administers an array of social justice programs, and brings inspiration through the many musical concerts it hosts throughout the year. Also on the grounds is an outdoor meditation labyrinth. Here visitors traverse the garden in silence as part of a meditative reflection on their own lives and the lives of others. The neighborhood of Nob Hill remains a very walkable area despite its many steep avenues. It remains an urban oasis for residents while never being too far from the action of downtown. Perfectly situated it remains bounded by the excitement of Chinatown, the thrilling nightlife of Polk Street, and the upscale shopping of Union Square. Nob Hill is a walking commute from downtown and the financial district. And for those not interested in walking at the end of the day, MUNI provides monthly cable car passes. Now that's traveling in style!

 

DOWNTOWN


The luxury high rises of downtown San Francisco constitute some of the most exclusive addresses on the planet. This is the heart of so much of San Francisco's energy and charisma. Close to the museums, the ballpark, the financial district, restaurants and farmers markets - it all comes together in this unquestionably thrilling section of the city. 
Flagship retailers and world-class boutiques line up and down Maiden Lane and the surrounding Union Square, creating an exhilarating shopping experience. Exquisite Michelin-rated restaurants all within easy hitting distance. The Ferry Building with its international food markets and eateries is an unrivaled lunchtime destination. Exotic cocktails, specialty coffees, and so much more await the lucky pedestrians who saunter past.


Unprecedented revitalization has taken hold in this dynamic district. New museums dot the map and bring in a vast array of local and international visitors. Dance and music performances can be found at one of the city's most vibrant cultural centers, a former 19th century U.S. Mint. Throughout the district one finds innovative public spaces including on Jessie Street, where the people can take in a bit of sun in the 18,000 square foot downtown public space. For some of the city's best open space try the Embarcadero with its breathtaking promenade along San Francisco's famed waterfront.
