It’s got three bedrooms, two and a quarter bathrooms, a remodeled kitchen, and backs up to a lush green setting. Oh, and did I mention parking and a highly convenient location? For those buyers who have been looking to get into the low-turnover/high-demand West Portal neighborhood, 460 West Portal could be a great fit.
Yes, the home is located on West Portal Avenue (as is the upstairs master suite), which means the Muni train runs by the house and can be noisy. But there are other homeowners who live along train lines in the city, and you could do far worse than West Portal Avenue. Because you can come out of your house and be in the midst of all the restaurants, shops and services that you’ll ever need (plus, there’s a movie theatre and a library). You can even walk to Stonestown Galleria if you feel like it, as well as Stern Grove.
The property came on the market in early September for $899,000, so the current $829,000 list price shows the sellers are willing to be reasonable here. The average price for the 25 three-bedroom homes that have sold this year in the neighborhood is $1,160,250, with nine of those homes selling for under $1M. Something tells me 460 West Portal could be a good deal waiting to happen for the holidays.
