Smackdown: Miraloma Park House vs Diamond Heights Condo

Welcome to our $1.2M smackdown, pitting the ever popular single-family house against a spacious condo that’s good to go, in two different neighborhoods. Which property would you choose?

Contestant #1
366 Melrose
Miraloma Park
3BR/2BA, 1229 sq ft, 1 pkg

366 Melrose is a charming home with two bedrooms on the main level and an additional room and bath downstairs. Finishes are dated but very clean, and the rear outdoor space is somewhat limited (but low maintenance). Good location near Glen Park village, BART, and 280.

Contestant #2
5118A Diamond Heights Blvd
3BR/2BA, 1500 sq ft, 2 pkg
Diamond Heights

This spacious condo has downtown views, updated kitchen and baths, walk-out patios and two-car parking. HOA dues are high at $1173/month, but include earthquake and regular insurance, trash, water, grounds maintenance and property management for this 76-unit association. You’re a short walk to Safeway down the road, and a few minutes away from Mollie Stone’s on Portola.

So which one would you buy?
