House vs Condo in Potrero: Texas Throwdown

Two new properties in roughly the same price range came on the market this week on Texas in Potrero, and they’re leading me to post this question: Which would you prefer?

In one corner is the above condo property at 311 Texas—2BR/1BA, top floor, views from nearly every room, a large deeded deck, unfinished attic and parking. List price is $819,000.

In the other corner is the single-family home at 558 Texas, which currently has no recent photos posted with the listing. But here’s what it looked like in 2000, when it sold for $575,000:

This is a 2BR/1BA Victorian with an updated kitchen/bath, garden, two decks, a bonus bedroom/bath down and one-car garage. List price is $799,000.

So which would you prefer–the fancier view condo, or the house that would let you live without being involved with your downstairs neighbors?
