The Bernal Heights market is experiencing a jolt of inventory, and not just in $1M+ dollar single-family houses. There’s something for everyone, and I wanted to point out some of my favorites. Whether you’re looking to spend up to $500,000 or $2M, here are some good choices in prime neighborhood locations.
1BR/1BA, no pkg
515 Eugenia is one TIC interest in a newly renovated, three-unit property at the corner of Bonview and Eugenia. This is a great location because it’s only a block to Cortland, as well as a few short blocks to Mission Street and its public transportation. 515 Eugenia is small, but well appointed. The kitchen is a good size and has reasonable counter and cabinet space, and there’s shared laundry and exclusive storage. The unit is located over the two-car garage, so this may not work if you’re sensitive to the noise of garage doors opening when your fellow building owners are coming and going. But overall, 515 Eugenia is a good package for this price point. (Also available are 199 Bonview #A, the other 1BR unit listed for $495,000, and the two-story main house unit at 199 Bonview for $995,000.)
1-2BR/1BA, 1 pkg
149 Wool has a flexible floor plan, with the option of having one bedroom and a formal living room up front, or two bedrooms and a kitchen/living/dining area at the rear. Either way, it’s good space that leads out to a deck and yard and also has a nicely renovated bathroom. The foundation is newer, and storage is included.
3BR/2BA, 2 pkg
If you love SoMa-style architecture but want to be in more of a neighborhood environment, 308 Anderson is a great bet. Two stacked cubes offer a narrow but spacious interior across two levels. And it’s a house, so there are no HOA dues, CC&Rs or any other restrictions. There’s no yard, but there are a couple outdoor balconies.
98 Anderson is a detached Victorian that features a main living area with excellent flow that leads out to a glass-enclosed deck and protected, private garden. There’s a front room that can be used as a bedroom (though it doesn’t have a closet). Upstairs are two large bedrooms and two bathrooms, and there is a bit of expansion potential on the garage level. This house has a great corner presence and has views from just about every window.
