Pacific Heights: Home for the Holidays?

Pacific Heights homes have a reputation that extends far beyond the 7×7 boundaries of my fair city. If you’ve seen Mrs. Doubtfire, well, you’ve not only seen Robin Williams (a sometime San Francisco resident himself, although his personal digs are out in the Seacliff neighborhood) in drag but also the stereotypical view of a San Francisco Pacific Heights homes. And what would make a better holiday gift than a copy of Mrs. Doubtfire on blu-ray? A Pacific Heights home you say? Why, I couldn’t agree more. Get the blu-ray disc for the stocking stuffer, and plan on hanging that stocking on a hearth in one of these Pacific Heights homes:

If the recipient of your generosity (and hey, no shame in gifting yourself) has been extra good this year, perhaps you should consider this single family home at 2222 Clay St, with four bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, and four wood burning fireplaces! Listed by Val Steele of Sotheby’s International Realty, this Pacific Heights home was originally listed for $4,200,000 but is currently available for $3,995,000.

If you are worried that the care and maintenance for a single-family Pacific Heights home might be a little too much time or energy, then perhaps a condominium is the right present for you or your loved ones? 1896 Pacific Ave. #302 is a large condo for sale (tax records put it at over 2,600 square feet) with three bedrooms and three full bathrooms. Last market sale was  in 1995 for $600,000 and it is currently listed with Mike Fanelli of Pacific Union for $1,895,000.But before  you go patting yourself on the back for saving so much by purchasing a condominium you should remember that the monthly HOA dues will set you back $1,155. Per month.

Either one of these Pacific Heights homes, or one of the other 63 currently on the market, could be yours. But don’t delay, we’re running out of holiday shopping days as you read this.
