It’s been years since I ran a San Francisco real estate smackdown. I thought it would be a good time to take a look at a range of homes competing for buyers’ attention as 2020 (thankfully) winds down.
A smackdown is when we take a look at two different properties at the same price point, in two very different neighborhoods—and you get to choose which one you’d buy. Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’re a qualified buyer who’d like to see your pick in person.
3BR+ House or Condo | $2M Range
178 Denslowe | Lakeside
4BR/3BA, 1925 sq ft
The Art Deco-style home at 178 Denslowe is very charming, and has been totally remodeled. The bedroom locations are a little staggered, with two bedrooms on one level, and two additional bedrooms on their own levels. There’s walk-out garden access and lovely finishes throughout. Noise-sensitive buyers take note, the property backs up to busy 19th Avenue. However, if you’re looking for a home close to San Francisco State, the university is across the street. And you’re a short distance from Stonestown Galleria. (Photo courtesy of Compass)
1436 Vallejo | Russian Hill
3BR/3BA, 1 tandem pkg
1436 Vallejo is a two-level condo in a three-unit building on a central block in Russian Hill. The unit has a small outdoor space, an ensuite bedroom downstairs and an open living/dining/kitchen area. There are also fun perks like a built-in sound system, a smart refrigerator, and steam shower. HOA dues are $322/month. (Photo courtesy of Compass) Continue Reading
