Living the San Francisco Dream


Russian Hill, San Francisco, condo for sale

Yesterday I had the pleasure of previewing a condo on Russian Hill that is listed for sale by Susan McBride and Lisa Wolfe of TRI Coldwell Banker. They graciously allowed me to take a photo or two.

996 Union Street has fabulous views! Perched high on the slope of the hill, the views of San Francisco Bay, Alcatraz Island, Telegraph Hill and Coit Tower are stunningly beautiful.

San Francisco view

This condo is classic "Old San Francisco," from the bay window in the living room, to the rich wood detailing, to it's location near the San Francisco Art Institute, North Beach and downtown. Modernized for today's living, you'll find an open floor plan, 2 fireplaces (one in the master bedroom), hookups for laundry, extra storage, and windows on 3 sides to flood the condo with light. The approximately 1100 sq. ft. home has 2 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, and hardwood floors.

What you won't find is garage parking, but the low monthly HOA fees of $240.00 might make that more palatable, especially for those who choose not to have a car.

996 Union Street is one example of gracious "Old San Francisco" living. If you'd like to learn more about this or other opportunities, please contact me.

Great list and the view is very special. As they say the right view can sell just about any real estate. All the best with the sale.

Lottie  Smart of the listing agents to allow you to help market the property.  Just the difference around the country...some of our HOA fees are about that for a year.  We have some HOA's that are $15.00 and $65.00 a year!

Jim, that's why I'm getting the word out--I'd love to bring in the buyer--996 Union is an awesome place

Melanie, the view and the beauty inside would make this a great place to come home to after a hectic day.

Joe, a view like this adds big bucks to the price--but what a treat!

John, these HOA dues are some of the lowest around; $500-$550/month are more typical!

Hi Debb, the view is dynamite! Some lucky buyer will love living here.

Judi, if you come for a visit sometime, we'll go on a busman's holiday and walk and tour various lovely old homes and condos. Sound good?
