Living the San Francisco Dream

Countdown to Thanksgiving - the ever-changing view

The first thing my husband and I noticed about our condo when we were looking for our San Francisco home was the view. Then all the other attributes of this complex came into play; they were right for us, but it was the view that sold us.

morning view

I start most mornings sitting in the living room, coffee in hand, focusing on gratefulness. I watch night slowly give way to day, see the ships glide into and out of San Francisco Bay, look at Mt. Tamalpais, Angel Island and Tiburon, or enjoy the fog on the bay or enveloping the neighborhood.

We watch the afternoon sun shining on Russian Hill, making it look more magical than ever, and glorious sunsets.

Sunset view from our condo

When the recent fires were raging in Sonoma and Napa counties, the view was ominous for days, but when the westerly winds finally kicked back in, the view of blue skies was more appreciated than ever.

Never the same, changing hour to hour, I'm thankful for the ever-changing view.

Good morning Lottie - there are certainly beautiful views on from your city on the hill.

It's always fun when I step away from my computer and head back to the living room/kitchen and see how the view has changed in a short while--never the same, Grant Schneider

Hi Gayle Rich-Boxman Fishhawk Lake Real Estate - I like to think of you, waking to views of Fishhawk Lake, and me with views of SF Bay -- we have lots for which to be thankful!

Hi Lottie, the reason we purchased our multi-gen home was for it's connection to Nature, right out the windows and doors. In my opinion, the view comes first, the rest of the house follows. :)

We knew some of our "must haves" when we bought our SF condo, Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD (general area, 1-car parking, etc) but the view is what made this one stand out. We're happy as clams here, have the Presidio nearby in which to hike, Golden Gate Park, and the wonderful Headlands and Mt. Tam just minutes away by car--or bus!
