The custom marble facade surrounding the firebox required four months to complete. There are over 300 hand-worked pieces. The sofabed is to the right of center. The entrance portico is in the far corner. Unseen within the entrance portico is a floor-to-ceiling mirror and a cedar-lined storage and clothing closet.

This location is ideal for city access, viewing, and mild climate. The hill was also a home to film-makers. The first (ever) movie urban car chase was filmed here as Bullit's Mustang was stunted often airborne by Steve McQueen behind the villian's Dodge Charger. That original chasing action produced the iconic phrase - "cut to the chase". Karl Malden's prop TV house, of Street's Of San Francisco, is a block downhill. Clint Eastwood, Don Johnson and Sean Connery all were filmed on these streets.

Your touring plan to proceed across the U.S. using an RV was "dreamy" - and we wish you every success as it unfolds. Your children were each as cute they get and we hope that they will be able to recall this touring treat as they age. Best to you. V&B

One of the least-mentioned aspects of this hill is that the surrounding freeways on both sides are easy to be visually observed prior to making an onramp commitment. Thus drivers can avoid entering in…
