West Portal is a high-demand neighborhood, with a low level of inventory—particularly for first-time home buyers. But there’s a trio of single-family homes now available for under $1M.
67 Madrone only has one bedroom (no exaggeration there), but its location is prime West Portal. With about 1,000 square feet on the main level, you have everything you need for a 1BR/1BA house. The garage isn’t large, but can accommodate one car and has a bonus room that could be enhanced. The seller had plans for an addition and expansion, but is leaving that up to the next owner. List price: $829,000.
Next up is 225 Granville, the newest listing in the area.
This 3BR/1BA home has about 1325 square feet, a living room with fireplace, and original kitchen and bath. This baby will be sold in a probate sale, so if you’re not up for being the sacrificial lamb in court, get your cashier’s checks together and plan on some overbidding in court. List price: $890,000.
And finally, there’s 542 Ulloa:
This 2BR/1BA home comes with permit-ready plans for adding a master suite, sitting room and laundry on the garage level. List price: $948,000.
