It’s been a slow week in San Francisco real estate, with most new inventory on tap to emerge in September and October. So it’s a good time to plug one of my favorite streaming shows—Surface, on Apple TV+. Shot in multiple locations in San Francisco, Surface is a psychological thriller about a woman named Sophie who falls over the side of a ferry and wakes up with no memories of anything related to her life.
If you live in or near the Lower Haight, you’ll recognize Sophie and her husband’s house—the black Queen Anne Victorian on the 600 block of Waller. The home’s ominous exterior pops up often, most notably when Sophie goes running. Her route takes her through the Haight and over to Crissy Field/Fort Point.
You’ll also spot Chinatown, the Palace of Fine Arts, Baker Beach and the Palace Hotel. Most of the interior shoots were done in Vancouver, but it’s nice to see our beautiful city as the backdrop of this series.
(The Waller house last sold in 2010 for $1,975,000. I threw that in to further legitimize this post. But I’m spending more energy tracking the plot than the property value.)
