Potrero Cottage a Cool Condo Alternative


The two-bedroom cottage at 655 Mississippi may be the cute, well-appointed house Potrero buyers have been waiting for in the new year. Listed at $699,000, the home has a lovely open floorplan that features a side deck right off the remodeled kitchen.

You wouldn’t know it from the exterior, but 655 Mississippi has vaulted beamed ceilings, two large skylights, and a gas fireplace. The kitchen even has wine storage and an island with breakfast bar, as well as a sizeable yard with a detached bonus room at the rear of the property.

And the best part? No one living above or below you, and no HOA dues.

Now, the house isn’t huge—tax records show about 1000 square feet—but sometimes it’s all a matter of how well the space is laid out. And there’s no garage, which could be a dealbreaker for some.

The 600 block of Mississippi isn’t a particularly poor location; it’s important to note that your neighbors are a mix of residential and commercial. However, if you walk out your door and hang a left on 22nd Street, you can hit all the Dogpatch restaurants and cafes that have sprung up over the past several years.

The property last sold in 2004 for $759,000, so let’s give the sellers credit here for being realistic in the current market with their list price.

Open Sat 1/14 and Sunday 1/15 from 1:00-4:00.
