554 HILL Street

Carefully Preserved Over Generations


Magnificent Victorian nestled on one of the most desirable flat blocks on the border of Dolores Heights and Noe Valley. This classic estate has been painstakingly maintained and cared for by the same family over multiple generations for nearly a century. Originally built in 1902 as a 2-unit building, today 554 Hill Street lives as a grand single-family home with an accessory "in-law" unit on the ground level. The three interior levels are connected by elevator making the home easily accessible. While the original period architectural details have been largely preserved, the home has been updated with state-of-the-art appliances and high-end finishes to best fit the comfort of contemporary living. The home's energy is supported by the solar power that provides best efficiency for complete enjoyment.
