Pacific Heights condos - 3 delightful options

By
Real Estate Agent with Today | Sotheby's International Realty CA BRE# 01215160

It was a picture-perfect day a few years ago when I took a seaplane ride and we circled Pacific Heights, with Lafayette Park in the foreground.

Pacific Heights is a highly desired part of town, with a wide variety of housing styles, from mega-million mansions, to charming Victorian single family houses, condominiums and apartments.

Today I took a look at 3 very different condos in terms of size and price, but all located in Pacific Heights within a few blocks of each other.

From each, one can walk to 3 different shopping districts (Polk Street, Union Street, and Fillmore Street), the CPMC hospital and medical offices, the historic Haas-Lilienthal house, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and a wealth of other destinations. And of course, beautiful Lafayette Park beckons one with its bay views, dog park, children's playground, tennis courts, and picnic tables and benches tucked away if different areas of sun and shade.

First, 1854 Vallejo Street - Unit E is a spacious half-floor condo with high ceilings and beautiful architectural details and a remodeled kitchen. This south-facing unit has 2 bedrooms, and 3 bathrooms, plus an office/den, parking for 1 car and additional storage. It is currently listed for sale by Paragon Real Estate Group for $2,349,000. This is elegant, old San Francisco luxury living!

From there I visited 1818 Broadway, a newer1-bedroom, 1-bath condo located on the second floor. The elevator takes one from the garage, with 1 parking space and storage, to the community laundry room and all the way up to the roof deck, with sweeping views of the Golden Gate Bridge and northern waterfront. This unit has a dining area, an office space, wood burning fireplace and a south-facing balcony. Listed for sale by Faira at $798,000.

The third condo is 1963-A Clay Street. This unit is a ground-floor studio located near the back of the building.  I found it to be light and cheery, with large windows overlooking the adjacent lovely garden, and a spacious 510 sq.ft. A combo washer/dryer is in the unit. There's no parking here, but with a WalkScore of 95 and transit score of 93 (MUNI #1 California stops at the corner) life is easy without a car. A bonus: Lafayette Park is 1/2 block away! Listed for sale by Compass Realty, the asking price here: $549,000.

If any of these interest you, or you'd like to learn of other opportunities, I'm here to help. Give me a call; let's talk.

Lottie, It must have been a delightful walk. All three condos have great locations. Walk score of 95 is so nice.

One of the joys of urban living for me, Steffy Hristova , is walking around San Francisco in the normal course of my day.

Hi Grant Schneider - if you visit San Francisco sometime, try to take a half-day and enjoy a sea plane ride of the area -- it was great fun.

Lottie Kendall - This is a very comprehensive report on a beautiful area where I can see Condo residence would be very beneficial and the views are spectacular! 

I can only imagine how thrilling it was for you to ride in the seaplane. That had to be an experience of a lifetime. I can also see by reading this blog post, it's not just about what an agent knows about the area, but how they view it from a different perspective.

Hi Lottie: I cannot imagine spending over a half million dollars for a condo and having no place to park a car, spoken like the agent from Sacramento that I am. Everybody in town is talking about our recent annexation to San Francisco. LOL.

Hi Patricia Feager - the seaplane ride a few years back was a birthday gift from me to my husband. We delighted in the different perspective of the City we love, the hiking trails in Marin County that we cherish and the beautiful coastline. From this perspective, it's hard to tell how hilly the area in the photo is!

That studio condo is perfect for one ready to embrace the new economy. I've met many people here who don't have a car, by choice. Uber, Lyft, taxis, cable cars, Muni buses, Zip Cars and CityCarShare make easy living alternatives.

The #1 bus directly in front of the condo takes one over Nob Hill to the Financial District. A block away are the #47 and #49, major north-south lines servicing Fisherman's Wharf area, Davies Symphony Hall, Market Street, CalTrain and beyond. Easy-peasy.

Thanks, Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD It was fun taking a sea plane ride, flying over the many hiking trails in Marin County that we know so well from the ground, then flying over our neighborhood and neighboring Lafayette Park.
