Properties in San Francisco fall across a broad spectrum, from teensy micro-units to the sprawling mansions of Billionaires' Row. Even at the small end of that scale, there's plenty of variety in the available options. There are currently 10 units under 600 square feet up for sale in the city, and we've mapped them all for you with help from the folks at Point2Homes, who compiled the city's tiniest listings using data from PropertyShark. They range from an '80s-style unit in Russian Hill being advertised as a pied-à-terre to a former model unit at the Mission's new Vida condo building. Most have common space and building amenities that offer a place within the building to entertain and relax. Though of course even San Francisco's smallest spaces command a premium: Nearly all of the 10 cost more than $1,000 per square foot.Read More
Mapping the 10 Smallest Homes for Sale in San Francisco
776 Tehama Street #9, SoMa
Size: 418 square feet
Price per square: $837
The skinny: The smallest unit for sale in San Francisco right now is a mini-one-bedroom condo that is a below-market-rate unit. It is reserved for first-time homebuyers who do not make more than $70,850 per year. The bedroom looks tiny, but there is laundry in the unit itself and on-site parking is available for a fee.
380 14th Street, #505, The Mission
Size: 456 square feet
Price per square: $1,203
The skinny: This small one-bedroom condo at the intersection of 14th and Valencia streets has high-end finishes, floor-to-ceiling windows, and two balconies. Although the apartment itself is too small for entertaining, there's a rooftop terrace with barbecues that is perfect for parties.
240 Lombard Street #233, North Waterfront
Size: 481 square feet
Price per square: $1,039
The skinny: This waterfront studio in the Parc Telegraph building is perfectly laid out and impeccably kept. Parking is included, and building amenities consist of a gym, a function room, and a guest suite. There's no laundry in the unit, but there is free shared laundry in the building.
3418 26th Street #4, The Mission
Size: 500 square feet
Price per square: $1,358
The skinny: A brand-new building in the Mission offers up this junior one-bedroom with a fireplace and private outdoor patio. The bedroom is separate, but it looks like the bed barely fits in, and there's definitely no room for bedside tables. Unlike most other small units, there are no common spaces to share.
45 Bartlett Street #516, The Mission
Size: 517 square feet
Price per square: $1,263
The skinny: A former model unit at new development Vida, this condo offers a living space plus one very small bedroom. Vida has a common rooftop lounge and first-floor social areas.
3235 Gough Street #303, The Marina
Size: 555 square feet
Price per square: $1,079
The skinny: Located inside a charming Marina building, this one-bedroom tenancy-in-common has an older style than most of the other small units on the market. However, the building has a common rooftop with Golden Gate views and a landscaped back garden.
2415 Van Ness Avenue #302, Pacific Heights
Size: 566 square feet
Price per square: $875
The skinny: This junior one-bedroom on the edge of Pacific Heights has been nicely renovated with a gourmet kitchen. There's a compact living space and a tiny bedroom that almost definitely doesn't fit a queen-size bed.
2 Fallon Place #50, Russian Hill
Size: 570 square feet
Price per square: $1,077
The skinny: Listed as a perfect pied-à-terre, this studio in the Landmark nonetheless offers very little in the way of interior photos. The unit has views out to Coit Tower and mirrored walls. The Landmark was built in 1980, and the unit has an '80s feel through and through.
240 Lombard Street #433, North Waterfront
Size: 582 square feet
Price per square: $978
The skinny: Another condo in the Parc Telegraph, this one-bedroom is long, narrow, and carpeted. It backs up to a rugged hill with grassy views. Although it is bigger than its counterpart at #233, this unit feels much more dated.
88 Townsend Street #312, South Beach
Size: 591 square feet
Price per square: $1,100
The skinny: There are no interior photos available of this junior one-bedroom, but the listing notes that it has a walk-in closet and built-ins. The rooftop, which is pictured extensively, has a landscaped deck with views out to the bay.
