A city and its spirit are defined by its landmarks. Think of the Eiffel Tower or Rockefeller Center. Imagine living near the Spanish Steps in Rome or the Ponte Vecchio in Florence. In San Francisco, one of our most treasured landmarks is the iconic curvy Lombard Street. Rarely does a property so close to this world renowned destination ever become available for sale.
Montclair Terrace is a beautiful, private lane just off the curves and gardens of Lombard Street. This exclusive enclave is steps away from the excitement of the “Crookedest Street in the World”, yet is incredibly peaceful and quiet.
40 Montclair Terrace is a spectacular 5 bedroom 3.5 bath home with breathtaking views of the bay and an open floor plan, ideal for entertaining. The luxurious master suite has a private balcony, sitting area, and spa-like bathroom. The garden is full of lush plant life, providing a natural retreat from the city. 40 Montclair Terrace is as San Francisco as Sourdough and Cable Cars.
Square footage is approximately +/- 3214 per appraisal. Sellers and Agents do not warrant this measurement. Buyer should do their own investigation.
Dazzling views, the twisting hairpin turns down brick-paved Lombard, and the Hyde-Powell cable cars make Russian Hill a favorite with tourists. But locals savor the steep garden walks, the tiny pocket parks, and Swenson's Ice Cream on the corner of Union and Hyde. Restaurants and boutiques along the tree-lined streets of Hyde Street between Jackson and Union Streets exude European charm. Polk and Green boasts international cuisine- from the Venetian inspired cooking at Pesce to the French Boulangerie, the Italian specialty wine store Biondivino. Upscale boutique shopping is arrayed along Polk Street between Union and Broadway.
Housing ranges from charming, century-old back yard cottages to multi-million dollar mansions, luxury hilltop town homes and condos with panoramic views of San Francisco Bay. The architectural examples in the neighborhood hark back to Italianate, Spanish Colonial, Mission Revival and Neo-Georgian influences, as well as Arts and Crafts. If all of this sounds appealing to you, be sure to head over to our Russian Hill homes for sale listing page.
Despite the steep streets, or because of them, Russian Hill is a highly walkable urban enclave. Residents can walk to work in the financial district and civic center. And best of all, ride the Cable Car home, using an SFMUNI monthly pass.
