Smackdown: Bernal House vs SoMa Loft

It’s time for another San Francisco real estate smackdown. In this edition we pit a sweet Bernal Heights cottage against a spacious SoMa loft at the $800,000 price point. Which would you prefer?

3770 Folsom / Cortland
Bernal Heights

1BR + bonus master suite
1 pkg

Situated half a block from Cortland, 3770 Folsom< is a nicely renovated Victorian cottage that makes good use of its limited space. The main level has a living room, bedroom, bathroom and kitchen with vaulted ceilings that leads to a deck overlooking the garden. Downstairs is a snappy master bedroom open to the garden, with the large, spa-like bathroom down the hall. For buyers seeking a functional and lovingly remodeled home with proximity to a retail area and the freeways, 3770 Folsom is a good bet. (Offers due today!) 28 Jennifer Place / Folsom

2BR/1BA, 1 pkg
HOAs $157/mo

If you’re up for a more urban neighborhood, larger 30-unit building and almost 1500 square feet of living space, 28 Jennifer Place may work for you. The living/dining areas have soaring ceilings and a fireplace, as well as an outdoor patio and decent-sized kitchen. There’s a loft area, as well as another bedroom; both would provide office/bedroom functionality. You also get an exclusive-use garage with laundry and interior access (unusual for SoMa). 28 Jennifer is a small street located between 4th and 5th Streets and Shipley/Clara, so you’re in proximity to Whole Foods, restaurants like Le Charm, Oola, Zero Zero and 280.

So which would you pick?
