What You Can Buy: Large Condos in San Francisco

San Francisco is a dense city, not unlike other popular urban areas. Many of its single-family homes and condos can average 1,000-1,200 square feet (or less). However, large condos are a fun find, and buyers who need more space typically snap them up quickly. Here’s a look at a trio of spacious units that recently hit the market:

620 Haight
Hayes Valley

3BR/2BA, 1827 sq feet
1-car tandem parking
List price: $1,099,000
620haight
I previewed the Edwardian top-floor flat at 620 Haight before it officially came on the market and was quite impressed with the space. This is a highly convenient location within steps to restaurants, bars, cafes and services, as well as a few blocks from two Muni rail lines. The unit features soaring ceilings, great period detail throughout and a nicely remodeled kitchen with plenty of room for entertaining. All three bedrooms are a good size (e.g., one isn’t a closet under the stairs). Bonus: There’s a private deck and shared manicured yard. HOA dues are $343.50/month. This unit was last sold as a TIC in 2005 for $1,110,000, after about $300,000 in renovations were completed.

881 Corbett #3
Twin Peaks

3BR/3.5BA, 2545 sq feet
1-car parking
List price: $1,549,000

881 Corbett #3 is the two-level penthouse in a three-unit condo building. It’s detached on three sides, which translates into great natural light, and there’s also a huge, west-facing terrace. You can also enjoy the stunning view deck off the living room. So this condo is all about views, light, and more space than you’ll get in Noe Valley for the price. There are three master suites, so if you have kids, they’ll appreciate having their own bathrooms. The seller has agreed to pay HOA dues through August ($349/month), and you also have the option of parking a second car in front of the driveway because you’ll only be blocking your garage. Last sold in January 2012 for $1.3M, it will be interesting to see how much this condo has appreciated since then.

323 Mississippi
Potrero Hill

3BR/3BA, 1775 sq feet
1-car tandem parking
List price: $1,249,000
323mississippi
323 Mississippi has a house-like feel, and is situated in an ideal Potrero location around the block from Plow, Farley’s and half a dozen other popular restaurants. The unit was expanded into two floors about six years ago with the addition of a master bedroom on the garden level. Unlike the more contemporary Twin Peaks condo, this one is in a building constructed in 1909. The owners have preserved the picture moldings, coved ceilings and other period details, yet have updated the unit for more modern living. Amenities include in-unit laundry, interior garage access, additional storage and shared yard. And oh, yeah—three bathrooms.
