Its all about the views. We are a back building in a funky North Beach / Telegraph Hill complex. Very safe, very secluded. The apartment downstairs is empty (and will remain so). You basically have the building to yourself.
The entrance is on Vallejo, following a long breezeway to the back. You will feel like you've entered a time warp back to old SF. The outside of the building is somewhat lacking (we're redeveloping in the next couple years) but the inside of the apt is charming.
