The Under 500 Club is Curbed SF's exclusive members-only support group for those homes on the market for less than $500,000. Things are looking up: Once the domain of poorly (if at all) staged homes, the Club's membership has grown to include both shitboxes and hidden gems. All listings of note should be sent to the Curbed SF Inbox.
When we think "Penthouse level," we don't normally think of a 582 sq ft shoe box condominium. But when that penthouse level unit is a member of the Under 500 Club, that's exactly what you get — and its not so bad, really. 240 Lombard St. #933 is a one bedroom at the base of Telegraph Hill in what is surely "one of the most desirable full-service buildings in the area." If the internet says it, it's gotta be true! All in all, it's a pretty simple space with a nice half-bay-window-half-skylight, great building amenities, and parking. Current listing price is $495,000.
