The Terraces Apartments is about as traditional San Franciscan as you can get. Located in the Polk Gulch neighborhood of Lower Nob Hill, you'll enjoy rent-controlled living and the convenience of residing steps from public transportation, shopping and local restaurants. Our newly renovated studio and one-bedroom homes include updated kitchens with sleek granite countertops and oak flooring, but none of this compares to the view from your expansive windows! There aren't many places that offer the historic San Francisco experience with the added convenience of downtown quite like The Terraces Apartments.
The Terraces Apartments can be found in the Polk Gulch area of Lower Nob Hill, just a stone's throw from the BART and MUNI and a short walk from neighborhood favorites like Trader Joe's and a handful of Zagat-rated restaurants and bars. Living in such a well-known and beloved area of San Francisco certainly has its benefits, like iconic landmarks and architecture, but without the ultra-polished finishes found in areas like the Financial District (which is just a short walk away). There are still hidden gems to be discovered and eclectic shops and bars to frequent, making Lower Nob Hill - the TenderNob, as it's often referred to - a creative, cultural place to call home. Come visit our neighborhood art galleries and restaurants and experience Lower Nob Hill for yourself!
