72 Macondray Lane #1, San Francisco
About This Home
A magical Macondray Lane romantic, 2-level, Bay view condominium, with a 3rd bonus level, is on the market for the very first time. The main level has 2 French doors opening to a balcony overlooking beautiful Russian Hill, the Bay and Alcatraz. It includes the living room with a stone fireplace, a sleeping alcove, closets, full bath and kitchen. Lower level #1 is a flex room that would be ideal as a bedroom. Lower level #2 has the wow factor as the hillside provides a dramatic rock wall. This room is ideal as an office/art studio. 72 Macondray is a lovely, well-maintained, 1930 4-unit building with architectural character and historic significance. Legend has it that Armistead Maupin lived on the lane when he wrote Tales of the City while strobe lights coming off Alcatraz Island flickered in his room. It is common to see travelers with guidebooks in hand eager to explore the lane. This magical path is covered with trees, ferns and flowers, making this a very special place to call home.
