There was a time when it was a challenge to find spacious, three-bedroom condos for $800,000. I saw three such properties on my broker tour yesterday:
1,843 sq feet
$300 HOAs; $250 for leased pkg
This unit features five walk-in closets, two bedrooms with fireplaces, and a nicely remodeled kitchen. The unit was on the market initially back in April, asking $863,000. By June, the current agent took over and reduced the price to $849,000. The most recent price reduction is what’ll probably sell the unit. Plus: Large square footage, very separate bedrooms. Walking distance to heart of Hayes Valley retail area and Market Street. Minus: One block from housing projects; somewhat rambling floorplan that dead ends in odd places; leased parking.
1,778 sq feet
You get two master suites in this condo, and two levels, which makes it feel house-like. The front of the property faces Haight Street, and the rear faces a courtyard. A good fit for a buyer who wants a roommate to offset costs. Plus: Large square footage, very separate bedrooms. Walking distance to Divisadero retail area & Buena Vista Park. Minus: Built in 1987, and not the most appealing exterior/interior in the architectural spectrum.
1,975 sq feet
This condo spans two levels and provides the most square footage of the three. Good closet space, remodeled kitchen. The lower unit, 154 Tiffany, is a 2BR unit pending at a $739,000 list price. Plus: Two-car parking; house-like floorplan; legal two bedrooms and bath upstairs; walking distance to public transportation & lots of restaurants, grocery store. Neighbors are tight. Minus: Some of the neighboring properties are not wildly attractive.
