Preview: 1840 Washington in Pacific Heights

I took a first look at 1840 Washington this week, the new 26-unit condo development in Pacific Heights. To recap previous posts, 1840 Washington features a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom homes. Pricing starts at $725,000 for 1BRs, and hovers in the $800,000s-$1,039,000 for larger units.

I checked out multiple units on each of the eight floors, which is somewhat like being a kid in a candy shop for a Realtor. Approximately four of the 26 units are sold, so 1840 Washington is in good shape for having not done a full marketing push yet.

1840 Washington is in the midst of a busy area, across from the Academy of Art, next to the 1800 Washington condo complex and around the block from House of Prime Rib (!). Its exterior and overall building feel is very much in line with surrounding properties. This isn’t really a building that provides unobstructed views and amazing outlooks (with the exception of a few units.) For the most part, you’re getting fairly spacious condos that face other buildings or overlook rooftops. But that can be expected based on the location and position within the block.

I thought I would feature a few photos of a one-bedroom unit; this is the model and it was staged:

I liked the finishes, which consist of Studio Becker cabinets, Bosch appliances, and Caesarstone counters. Here’s a sample kitchen:

One of my favorite units was #202, which has a deeded walk-out patio overlooking a garden area:

I thought the bedrooms were a reasonable size, and a few had seating areas that could easily accommodate a desk or office area.

There are deeded parking spaces in the garage, and no “stacked” or lift mechanisms are involved. I also liked that there’s on-floor storage, meaning you don’t have to head down to a cage or closet in the garage.

1840 Washington gets my thumbs up. Check out the Web site for more details, and my previous post for current pricing, square footage and unit configurations. And contact me at 415.823.4656 / if you’d like to make an appointment to tour the property.
