Open House Report, SF Edition: 4 High-Style Condominiums to Look at This WeekendAuthor:Philip Ferrato
This weekend, four very stylish San Francisco classics, all different— a condo actually in the Financial District skyline, an exercise in minimalism in SOMA, a rooftop pied-à-terre, and a classic Pacific Heights condo, updated.
333 Bush Street #3705, Financial District, $1.499 (above)
Did you know that at the top of the red sandstone Post-Modern Charles Schwab building on Bush Street (between Geary and Kearny) there are 45 condominiums units? On the 37th floor, this 2-bed, 2-bath unit with a terrace has had the 1980s renovated out and includes an ArcLinea kitchen. And while the outdoor space probably gets a little breezy, it’s a sweet spot to get outdoors in the middle of San Francisco’s skyline. The open house is probably worth going to just to see the owner’s quirky collection of 20th Century design (more images at the listing link.) Monthly, leased parking will set you back $275 and the HOAs are $1049. Incredible views at no extra charge. Open Sunday, March 18 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
1022 Natoma Street #2, SOMA, $699K
In a building by San Francisco Minimalist architect Stanley Saitowitz and renovated with metalsmiths from South Park Fabricators, this 1-bed, 1-bath condominium mixes sleek and rough with open space. The only drawback we can see is the one bath— beautiful, but up the spiral stairs— in what’s otherwise one of the best interiors we’ve seen on the market in a while. Check out the images at the listing link. There’s a glass-and-steel bridge leading from the sleeping space to a sitting area and a well-shaded outdoor terrace, plus an exposed timber structure and trusses. A 3-unit building, with one parking space and HOAs of only $120 a month. Open this weekend, Saturday, March 17 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Sunday, March 18 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
1254 Washington Street, Nob Hill, $1.149
Managing to be slick and romantic at the same time, this recently-renovated 3-bed, 2-bath condo has iconic San Francisco views from the north slope of Nob Hill. Aside from a terrace railing painted the same color (or close enough to) the Golden Gate Bridge’s International Orange, it has one of the best island kitchens we’ve seen in any condo in this price range, ever (pics at the listing.) Monthly tandem parking for two cars nearby is $370 a month, with monthly HOAs of $1087. In a lovely c.1913 building, the only thing that’s worrisome is the listing— where there’s no mention of an elevator. Think of it as cardio cross-training with groceries. Open this weekend, Saturday, March 17 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Sunday, March 18 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
2090 Pacific Avenue #305, Pacific Heights, $925K
A classic old-school Pacific Heights building on a street lined with mansions, with real rooms and handsome details, this 1-bed, 1-bath apartment has been expertly renovated. Yes, we love the spare kitchen (above) plus the vintage paneled doors and beautifully tiled fireplace, in a stylish combination of old and new with a crisp paint job. HOAs of $598 a month include 1-car parking. For some reason, the price on this unit went up from $880K two weeks after a previous deal did not go through. An easy walk to the food, drink and shopping on Fillmore Street. Open Sunday, March 18 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
