About This Property:

Completed in 1923 and designed by three of the most notable architects of the day, 850 Powell Street is one of the few Grande Dame residential buildings on historic Nob Hill. Gracefully remodeled in 2015, Residence 403 at The Francesca epitomizes sophisticated urban dwelling in one of San Francisco’s most iconic neighborhoods.

Elegance. Comfort. Glamor. Here, it’s yours.

Open the handsomely carved entrance door, step through the inviting foyer and into the home’s living space where the grandeur of the 1920s meets modern sensibilities. Celebrating the historic integrity of the property, period details punctuate a generously scaled living room with woodburning fireplace and adjacent formal dining room. Meanwhile, a completely remodeled eat-in kitchen seamlessly joins form and function with Caesarstone counters, high-end stainless appliances and marble-topped island. 

Entertaining or unwinding, dramatic city and bay views from nearly every room make an inspiring backdrop. Panoramas of downtown, the Transamerica pyramid, Coit Tower and Chinatown wrap the northeast corner of the residence to the master bedroom. This light-filled sanctuary is complemented by private dressing room and remodeled bath. Across the hall, one of two guest bedrooms enjoys a remodeled ensuite bath and views of its own. 

Descend from one of two elevators to The Francesca’s beautifully preserved Renaissance Revival lobby. Step onto Powell Street, directly across from the Fairmont Hotel, and the world-class restaurants, theaters and shopping of Union Square, Financial District, North Beach, Chinatown and SoMa are a short walk or rideshare from your front door.

The Francesca is attended by a doorman seven days per week. Parking is available for $200 per month per availability and HOA Rules. HOA dues include water, heat, garbage, building insurance, doorman, maintenance, reserves and property management.
