Weekend Open House Report: NoPa Edition

New, 3 comments

Location: 749 Baker Street
Size: 2-bed, 2-bath; 1,352-square-feet
Price: $729,000
Pitch: "If your must-have list includes two real bedrooms (one with an en suite bath), a glorious Victorian facade, a second full bath, a private deck, shared yard, and in-unit laundry, come home to 749 Baker. In a fully owner-occupied 3-unit condo building, this spacious flat is move-in reedy. Walk to all the restaurants NoPa has to offer or cook in the updated kitchen and serve it up in the adjacent dining room or al fresco in the yard. Pets are welcome here: two are allowed (one of which can be a dog up to 35 lbs). Enjoy living in the center of the city with numerous MUNI lines within three blocks, the Panhandle a short walk down Baker, and the soon-to-open Bi-Rite a few blocks away."
Our Take: Monthly HOA dues are an unbelievably low $150 and there's 1-car parking if you want to lease it for $200.
Open House: Sunday, 2 to 4PM

Location: 1944 McAllister Street
Size: 2-bed, 1-bath; 1,376-square-feet
Price: $699,000
Pitch: "Live in one of San Francisco's hottest neighborhoods - NOPA. Top floor home has the classic charm & warmth many people aspire to have in SF. Timeless beauty + minutes to some of the best Zagat rated eateries, wine bars, highly acclaimed shops, Golden Gate Park, USF, and UCSF. Large formal living room w/ decorative fireplace. Formal dining room. Large master bedroom. Updated kitchen w/ stainless appliances & granite counters. In unit laundry & 1 car parking +storage room in garage. Huge rear deck."
Our Take: Monthly HOA dues are $250 and there's 1-car parking in the garage. This property has a killer rear deck. But that kitchen? What's going in there? Is the fridge really in the utility room? We'd suggest some minor remodel work.
Open House: Sunday, 2 to 4PM

Location: 442 Lyon Street
Size: 3-bed, 3-bath; 2,140-square-feet
Price: $1,399,000
Pitch: "Stunning Victorian home on three levels with top notch remodel, beautiful design, restoration and renovation. Superb finishes throughout. Main level has formal foyer, large formal living room w/ fp, formal dining w/ fp, butler's pantry, eat-in Chef's kitchen w/ french doors to deck, library, bedroom w/ fp and full bath. Top floor is three-room master suite with luxurious bathroom which includes deep jet tub, two-person shower, dressing room with Hollywood-style vanity & skylight. Lower level has interior access and includes two rooms, kitchenette, full bath, mudroom, laundry rm and 2-car garage. Yard, Koi pond, garden! One block to Panhandle Park, close to Alamo Square, Buena Vista & Divisadero!"
Our Take: We'd like to thank the listing agent for keeping it real by mentioning that the master bathroom has a shower that fits two. This is the question buyers are afraid to ask. The kitchen's super swanky with its stainless steel industrial look, but it lacks any cabinetry at all.
