I checked in on progress at the new residential development called Summit 800 this week in the Stonestown area. Construction is fully under way, transforming a once barren hillside into San Francisco’s newest neighborhood.
Buyers for Summit 800 will appreciate the airy locale up on the hill, as well as the luxurious, almost opulent finishes in the townhomes and single-family houses. Developers Maracor and Comstock Homes have paid more attention to design and finishes than I’ve seen in the more cookie-cutter condo projects that have hit the city in the past couple years. There are no plain, white walls or minimal kitchen finishes here, and you also get a lot of square feet for the money. Think giant master suites with bathrooms the size of a San Francisco studio.
What’s For Sale & How Much It Costs
Sales kicked off in August 2014 for this 182-unit project, which includes condos, townhomes and single-family homes with five different 3BR/2-2.5BA floor plans. (Single-family homes let you occupy the whole building, condos and townhomes have two residences per building and share walls or ceilings.) There are reportedly 37 homes in contract, and some residents are already living on the premises.
Current releases vary from 1547-2133 square feet, and range in price from $979,000-$1,588,000.
There’s an attractive, 2-acre landscaped park with “tot lot” and dog park at the base of the hill:
Here’s a scheme of what Summit 800 will look like once it’s finished:
What You’ll Find Inside
Units have luxury in mind, as well as two-car parking for most properties—kind of what you might envision you could get if you left San Francisco for the suburbs. Kitchens have granite countertops, Viking appliances and substantial backsplashes. And bathrooms feature “sumptuous” finishes like giant tubs (try putting that in a Mission district bathroom!) & spa-like showers. Here’s a look at some of the different kitchen and bath finishes:
Many properties have small yards or balconies; here’s a shot of one of my favorite balconies off the master suite in one of the townhomes:
HOA dues are $160-$180/month, which is extremely low for San Francisco developments.
Where You Are
Situated in the southwest tip of the city adjacent to Daly City, 800 Summit isn’t a walking location. This is all about being able to jump on 280 to get to the South Bay. You can also drive to nearby Stonestown Galleria, Lake Merced, Harding Park, and the San Francisco Zoo. Or head up through the Sunset and hit Golden Gate Park.
What Will the Sales Office Throw In?
I’ve been told that the developer is offering a design center credit on some townhomes and houses.
If you’d consider living at Summit 800, give me a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org/415.823.4656. I’d be happy to set up a tour and see if any of these homes will work for you.
