This 585-square-foot Inner Sunset backyard home is petite but perfect

New, 12 comments

Asking is $699,000

Cottage-like home with brick steps, navy blue facade, orange door, pitched roof, and windows galore.
A bridge orange door contrasts nicely with the navy blue facade.

Every now and then a detached home graces the market, prompting one to think, “Wow, maybe I could buy a house in the country’s most expensive real estate market?”

This is one of those days, and this is one of those homes. Featuring one bedroom, one bathroom, and 585 square feet, 1223 Second Avenue unit A is a fully detached condo located in a verdant backyard sitting behind a two-unit building in the Inner Sunset.

What it lacks in size, it makes up with in charm and privacy. Recently renovated throughout, the home feels larger due to its high ceilings and abundance of natural light pouring in through its many windows. The new kitchen comes with stainless steel appliances, quartz counter tops, new cabinets, and a laundry closet. (Speaking of which, there’s a washer and dryer in the unit.)

The hardwood floors have been recently refinished, new light fixtures added to every room, and the bedroom comes with French doors and stained glass. There’s even large attic for storage and a walk-in closet.

As for neighborhood amenities, this place has them in spades, located near scores of shops and eateries near Judah and Irving. And don’t forget that it’s less than a block away from Golden Gate Park.

Asking is $699,000. Expect it to sell for a lot more.
