21 Alta Street #C

Telegraph Hill is one the City's oldest neighborhoods, inhabited long before the Gold Rush by those who worked on the nearby waterfront. Today, Telegraph Hill is home to the largest concentration of pre-1870 buildings in San Francisco. The neighborhood still bears witness to those glory days. As ships unloaded their cargo, a quarry at the top of Telegraph Hill supplied the rocks they needed for ballast, and today, the exposed cliff face above Broadway remains one of the neighborhood's defining features. 

Telegraph Hill is famed for its Italianate homes, Carpenter Gothic houses, and charming cottages, with their steeply pitched roofs and ornate wooden scroll work. Those examples of old San Francisco are joined by newer additions, including modernist homes by noted architects Richard Neutra, Gardner Dailey, and William Wurster. 

Coit Tower, named after the heiress, Lillie Hitchcock Coit, who donated the funds to honor San Francisco's firefighters, dominates the skyline of the community. While steep, the slopes of Telegraph Hill lead to the Financial District, Fisherman's Wharf, North Beach and the waterfront, making this an extremely walkable neighborhood. The Filbert Street Steps, one of the many wooden walkways that criss-cross this community, provide a pathway up the hill from Levi’s Plaza. Fortified with a meal from Il Fornaio, climbers can take the steps to Coit Tower, past the spectacular Grace Marchant Garden, a magical community garden with towering trees colonized by wild parrots. The view from the top of Coit Tower draws tourists from around the world.
