It’s no secret that single women are more likely to purchase a home than single men. (Based on all the single women I’ve helped buy properties, I strongly agree with the previous statement.) The studio at 1730 Broderick #12 in Lower Pacific Heights exemplifies that trend: The past two owners have been single women. So when I saw this unit on tour this week, I thought I’d get the word out.
This compact yet very functional unit is on the top floor of a handsome 12-unit Edwardian. The living, dining and kitchen areas have garden and sweeping city views. There are nice period details, a skylight in the kitchen and hardwood floors. And you even have a sleeping alcove, letting you avoid the dreaded lumpy futon that typically has to pull double duty as a couch and bed:
A large storage space is deeded to #12, so you don’t have to stuff your possessions into the actual unit. The location is excellent, very near the Laurel Village shops, public transportation and restaurants. (That 95 Walk Score is no exaggeration.) List price: $448,000. This unit was sold in 2005 for $414,000, and then again in 2008 for $459,000.
