Open House Obsession: Our Top Three Picks For Sunday in San Francisco

Where: 77 Dow Place #908 Yerba Buena/SOMA 
When: Sunday, November 24th from 2:00pm to 4:00pm
Why: Designed by Kotas/Pantaleoni Architects and built in 2002 (at top) the lofts in 77 Dow have better details and construction values than most, and we especially like the exposed, poured concrete and the kitchen (below) in this 1-bed. 1.5-bath unit– the decor's not interesting, but the good bones are. Have a look at the agent's dedicated site, www.77dowplace908.com.
How Much: $749K, down from $850, with HOAs of $626.
Upside: Great minimalist shell, plus high ceilings and two parking spaces.
Downside: Small, and best for one person whose friends like to stay in hotels.



Where: 140 Bush Street #5, Pacific Heights
When: Sunday, November 24th from 2:00pm to 4:00pm
Why: The perfect 1-person condo in a 1920s commercial building. With almost 2000-sq-feet, this luxurious, skylit 1-bed, 1.5-bath unit is beautifully detailed and comes with an immense, sybaritic bath and a dressing room larger than some people's bedrooms. There's a separate office area, plus the sleek kitchen can be closed off from the living/dining area (below).
How Much: $1.775M, down $100K when first listed two months ago. HOAs of $450.
Upside: Immaculate, high-style details, open space and light plus 12-foot ceilings in what is most likely the only loft building in Pacific Heights.
Downside: With no mention in the listing of an elevator, possibly the most expensive 3rd floor walk-up in town.



↑Where: 2774 Jackson Street, Pacific Heights
When: Sunday, November 24th from 2:00pm to 4:00pm
Why: You don't have to go to an open house to see the real estate. It boasts high-end boho chic from a francophile owner with taste, but the only reason we want to see this 2-bed, 2-bath apartment is the galvanized steel and brass console No. 57 designed by John Dickinson. Greatly influenced by Jean-Michel Frank and one of the legendary San Francisco decorators of the '70s, Dickinson's witty, surrealist furniture is much coveted and rarely seen in its natural environment– and this console could easily fetch $30K at auction.
How Much: $1.425M, HOAs of $450. The console, about 35K.
Upside: Old-school 1914 building on a quiet street.
Downside: We hate the kitchen.
