I headed over to the Buena Vista Park neighborhood this week on broker tour to check out a couple properties for clients. It so happened that the homes were located on two of my favorite streets in the city.
First up was 35 Divisadero:
This 2BR/1BA condo is situated on the block of Divisadero that runs just west of Castro, between Duboce and 14th Street. The tree-lined street has many homes with classic San Franciscan architectural details. 35 Divisadero is about 1190 square feet, and though it’s pretty basic in terms of finishes and overall showing appeal, this first-floor unit in a two-unit property had a nice floor plan. There’s a small yard space and tandem parking, and the unit is listed at $899,000. Based on recent sales in the neighborhood, the list price should probably be closer to $800,000, but we’ll see how things go. The current owners paid $820,000 in 2005, so they may not be quick (or able) to take substantially less right now.
Next up was 7 Broderick Street:
This large Victorian with a stucco face is on another tree-lined street that feels very private. Listed at $2.1M, the 4BR/3.5BA home has been renovated since it was last sold for $1,050,000 in 1999. The house has a great feel, and new owners could certainly come in and upgrade the kitchen and bathroom finishes to add value. There’s also a separate structure in the yard that can be used as a small garage or artist’s studio.
Both homes have high Walk Scores and are near the Duboce Triangle Muni stations, as well as many bus lines. And don’t forget about Buena Vista Park itself for recreation and dog walking, as well as the close proximity to the Haight and Castro.
