About the Home


Jewel on the Hill – An Iconic Piece of San Francisco History!

Enter the Tropical Zone, the splendor of the tropics has been recreated in the heart of sunny Potrero Hill.  Built in 1875, this is one of the 1st homes to be built in the neighborhood.  This home has been featured in many books about San Francisco.

This corner lot home is the work of famous & meticulous designer Larry Mansada whom was also an interior designer to such notables as Mel Brooks, Diane Sawyer and Frank Sinatra.  He designed this very special San Francisco Classic in the 80s.  He also helped design some of San Francisco's world class restaurants and night clubs such as the Blue Fox Restaurant and Mumms Restaurant and Disco.

Floor Plans


Designer Mansada incorporated as much care outdoors as he did indoors; this lovely home is flanked with a rich mix of Chinese and Mediterranean palms, banana palms and orchids from around the world.  A wall of sliding glass dissolves boundaries between indoors and out and overlooks the fabulous tiled swimming pool.  A tropical landscaped garden surrounds the home.

Details like soaring ceilings, marble floors, custom doorways and 3 stone mantel fireplaces set this home apart.  The home features a Chef’s dream gourmet kitchen including a built in banquette for dining, a large guest suite and bathroom; perfect for guests or perhaps an office or home theater room, and 2 car parking in the garage.  The home also possesses a vast attic space for expansion - drawings will be forwarded as part of the sale to develop the attic with 11’6 ceilings and unstoppable views of the downtown skyline!

Potrero Hill

One of the best kept secrets for many years, Potrero Hill was once the blue collar home of shipping docks, storehouses, and the simple shops and bakeries frequented by the families who called it home. The big turnaround came on the heels of the dot-com revolution when many of the warehouses and factories in the area were transitioned into the live-work lofts and offices we know today. Development along Third Street has solidified this area's reputation as an exciting destination, with an unparalleled ease of commute to downtown SF.

Among Potrero Hill's many assets, its sunny weather, fantastic views, and ready access to all highways rank high on the list. A hardy neighborhood, there are a great many early Victorians along its charming streets which remarkably withstood the earthquake of 1906.

Eateries, bars and shops along 18th street are plentiful in options. The classic watering hole Blooms, named for the heroine of Ulysses, offers pool tables, awe-inspiring views, and fantastic people watching. Chez Papa offers the best French Provencal bistro cuisine this side of the Sierra Nevada. And please don't miss Farley's, where an easy-going coffee drinking crowd enjoy daily brews strong enough to cut through any misty morning.

Students and young folks help liven things up just enough thanks to the nearby California College of Art campus, the California Culinary Academy, and local bar The Bottom of the Hill, which hosts an amazing array of music acts not to be missed. You'll find plenty of shopping and grocery options close to 16th and Potrero.

If you've never visited Potrero Hill, get ready to be romanced by this charming hillside respite.
