Homes for sale in the neighborhood are bounded by an area defined by Vallejo Street on the south, Sansome on the east, Francisco to the north and Powell Street and Columbus Avenue to the west, where the neighborhood abuts the bustling and busy North Beach neighborhood. Muni bus lines are the primary public transit option in the neighborhood, although downtown is easily within walking distance (as long as you don’t mind the walk uphill when you return at the end of the day).

The area was originally called Loma Alta (“High Hill”) by the Spaniards, followed by Goat Hill, and then arrived at its current moniker in the 1800’s when a semaphore was constructed in the area to signal to the rest of the city the type of ships entering our beloved bay.

The Filbert Steps are well-known for the gardens that meander down to Levi Plaza. Today, Telegraph Hill is also famous for its flock of wild parrots that are the topic of a 2003 book and subsequent documentary entitled The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill.

Homes for sale in Telegraph Hill often have unobstructed water views of the San Francisco bay, including Alcatraz and Treasure Island. If you are looking for nightlife, restaurants, and shopping you’ll find it to be a short walk away in the surrounding neighborhoods.

Homes for sale in Telegraph Hill span a variety of price points, although homes with exceptional views can easily list for millions of dollars, and there are also a variety of housing styles available in the neighborhood, from historic buildings to more recent in-fill projects.
