Monday began our last-minute-home-shopping marathon with a tour of what could be yours in Bernal Heights. For those of you that wanted to live in the Heights, but not just Bernal Heights, we headed up to Pacific Heights on Tuesday. Today we tour a neighborhood between the two, not just geographically but perhaps metaphorically as well. That’s right, today’s gift-a-palooza looks at a neighborhood I’m pretty partial to, the Inner Sunset. Nestled up against Golden Gate park, and bounded by 19th Ave. on the west side, the Inner Sunset is a wonderful neighborhood filled with shopping and dining venues, as well as being steps from the park and convenient to public transit (if any public transit in San Francisco can be called convenient, but I digress…)
For those of you who are not quite sure what to give, how about a home that isn’t quite sure what it is? Listed as a single-family in the MLS, this home appears to be a 2 unit building with an unwarranted in-law and a cottage in back. For those keeping track, that would be four units. It’s a home with such so much shiny granite and ornate detail that even Elvis would be happy to call it home! Without further ado, please meet 1278-1280 17th Ave. listed by Charles Lu of Diamond Location Realty. Asking price is $1,799,000.
If you are thinking more along the lines of a condominium, then you should definitely consider this great top-floor condo that is just steps from Golden Gate Park. Listed by Susan McLaughlin and Lawrence Garvin of Paragon Real Estate, 1244 6th Ave. is a two bedroom, one bath condominium in a four-unit building. It includes one car independent parking, but shame on you if you drive that car to Golden Gate Park! Asking price is $699,000.
