For buyers looking to purchase a condo in Lower Pacific Heights, it’s possible to see three good possibilities on the Sutter corridor. I thought it would be fun to take a look at the trio that’s currently on the market:
1980 Sutter #317
The 2BR/2BA condo at 1980 Sutter #317 in The Amelia (a complex also shared with a 2185 Bush Street address) is a nicely remodeled home with just under 1300 square feet. The unit faces south, and features two decks and two skylights on the upper level. There’s also a washer/dryer and a wood-burning fireplace. HOA dues are $754/month, and include garage parking. The location of 1980 Sutter is prime Lower Pacific Heights, right on the Fillmore stretch. #317 was on the market at $795,000 in late 2010 and was withdrawn before coming on the market again in mid January for $775,000. It last sold for $820,000 in 2006.
2609 Sutter #3
2609 Sutter #3 is a top-floor, 3BR/1BA condo with 1,690 square feet and one-car parking. Though the building is closer to the Laurel Heights area vs. the Fillmore epicenter, there’s a private deck with city views and obviously more space for the money. HOA dues are $350/month. List price is $799,000.
Though this unit recently went into contract, I included it in the event something falls out and a good opportunity arises for a buyer. The 2BR/2BA, two-level condo has about 1,600 square feet and one-car parking, and is very well appointed. There are two master suites on separate floors (great for those who want guest space) and 18′ ceilings. The building was constructed in 2000, and HOA dues are a low $173/month. The downside to this location is that it’s a block from the local housing projects, which is probably why the unit was on the market a while (initially at $999,999) before it finally went into contract with a list price of $899,000. The previous sale occurred in 2004 for $879,000.
