Buyers dreaming of having their own private pool in San Francisco can expect to pay top dollar.
Though we get a fair amount of fog, our climate has warmed significantly over the past several years. That means we’re getting more warm days that may end up being perfect for a swim. If you’re into pools, buying a house with one makes a lot more sense these days.
There are a number of large condo buildings that have common area pools. Most of them are in Diamond Heights, in the Van Ness/downtown area, Mission Bay and South Beach.
Pools in single-family homes, however, are rare. For example, of the 4,400 houses that have sold since January 2018, only eight had pools. And those homes sold in the range of $2,200,000-$9,150,000.
There are a few different types of pools that pop up in San Francisco single-family homes. They include “endless” pools, infinity, lap, and heated inground. Here’s a glance at some of the pools in properties that have sold recently—and three that are currently for sale:
