The Big House at the Top of Jackson Street

This Nob Hill mansion on Jackson Street between Jones & Taylor seems ripe with intrigue. It's just two blocks or so from my home but exists in a very different stratum of San Francisco society.

I can imagine a well-dressed couple smoking on the veranda after work on a long, languid evening -- twinkling lights, The Bay, The Bridge. Then, breaking the calm of this idyll, a black telephone rings. On the other end of the line is the voice of Alfred Hitchcock who will announce that everything is about to change.
