The Five Least Expensive Properties For Sale on Nob Hill

New, 8 comments

This week we're heading up a hill to see what's happening with Nob Hill's least expensive real estate. There are very few residences currently for sale, so instead of doing our regular top ten we're doing the five least expensive properties for sale on Nob Hill. Boundaries are above and are set by the realtors (though we agree with them in this case — a real rarity). Let's get this party started!

5) 939 Jackson Street, #302
Asking price: $910,000
Size: 2-bed, 2-bath, 1,110-square-feet
Price per square foot: $820
The skinny: This is a newly built (2005) "penthouse" (is it really a penthouse if it's simply a top floor unit in a 3-story building?) has "classic details combined with modern luxury." It has all the bells and whistles you'd expect: Stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, hardwood flooring, surround sound, washer and dryer, etc. There's also a "generous spa tub." The roof deck is shared with the other 8 units and has views of the Transamerica building, Bay Bridge, Alcatraz, Coit Tower, and everything else. Monthly HOA dues are $400 and there's 1-car parking in the garage.

4) 1601 Pacific Avenue, #205
Asking price: $899,000
Size: 3-bed, 2-bath, 1,190-square-feet
Price per square foot: $755
The skinny: This is a 2-story unit in a 16-unit building on the corner of Pacific and Polk, so be wary of the weekend noise (the master bedroom faces the street, but we believe it's on the 3rd floor). While built in 2000, this unit's already been upgraded with highlights like new Casesarstone countertops and a Bertazzoni range. There's a large private patio located on a quiet inner courtyard. Monthly HOA dues are $544 and there's 1-car parking in the garage.

3) 1333 Jones Street, #1003A
Asking price: $850,000
Size: 1-bed, 1-bath, unlisted square footage
Price per square foot: Unavailable
The skinny: We hate to say it, as the Comstock is one of our favorite residential towers in all of San Francisco, but this condo's completely ordinary and lacks any characteristics of its Mid-Century Modern roots. Sure, you'd be dealing with a blank canvas, but it may be a little too blank for some folks. It's being advertised as "the perfect San Francisco pied-à-terre." Monthly HOA dues are $774 and there's 1-car parking in the garage.

2) 1530 Jones Street, #3
Asking price: $565,000
Size: 1-bed, 1-bath, unlisted square footage
Price per square foot: Unavailable
The skinny: This is a TIC in a 6-unit building. It's got traditional Edwardian charm. There's hardwood flooring throughout, a floor-to-ceiling marble bathroom, and a gas fireplace. There's a common area with a patio with BBQ and gardening area. There's 1-car parking, but the listing says "compact car great, midsize car good!" It also says that fractional financing is available and that it's been in the condo lottery twice. Monthly HOA dues are $300.

1) 31 Reed Street
Asking price: $499,000
Size: 1-bed, 1-bath, unlisted square footage
Price per square foot: Unavailable
The skinny: This is a TIC that's being advertised as a "smashing pied-à-terre or first home." It's on an impossibly adorable alley, right off the cable car line. In 2008 it underwent an extensive remodel. There's leased parking for $350 a month and monthly HOA dues are $228.
