Luxury Listing of the Month
Listed by agent Franck Costa with Vanguard Properties

An address such as this rarely comes to market in Nob Hill. When it does, it’s here and then gone – possibly for generations, because this is iconic San Francisco real estate unlike any other.

The Boggs-Shenson House is a hidden gem, a luxury oasis on the National Trust for Historic Preservation. This brown-shingled home sits on a quarter of an acre double lot atop a hill. As one of only a few single-family homes in Nob Hill, the estate boasts five bedrooms, and five bathrooms across four stories, with every detail considered, including three outdoor living spaces, a 634-bottle walk-in wine cellar and 42 gas fireplace set in architectural stone.

The views are nothing short of spectacular, including the Golden Gate & Bay Bridges, Coit Tower, Transamerica Pyramid, the City skyline, the Bay and Grace Cathedral.

This house speaks to discerning individuals who seek to build their very own legacy in the heart of Nob Hill.
