We say quintessential not just because of the high ceilings, period details, and the lovely and quirky kitchen and dining room, but because the price is $999K. Only in San Francisco is it par for the course for a 2-bed, 1-bath condo to cost a million bucks. The building (which is in Pacific Heights) was built in 1904 and retains a good chunk of its original charm: original glass paneled entry door, a wood paneled entry hallway, bay windows, walnut inlays in the hardwood flooring, stained glass windows, crown moulding, brass chandeliers, built-ins, and more. There's also a shared backyard and roof deck. Monthly HOA dues are $338 and there's parking nearby if you want to shell out $275 per month.
