Walk Score Winners: 2BR Condos in Russian/Telegraph Hill

We’re taking a look at 2BR condos with high Walk Scores today in the Telegraph and Russian Hill neighborhoods:

Let’s stop first at 520 Vallejo:

520 Vallejo
Telegraph Hill
List Price: $725,000
HOAs: $184/mo
1-car pkg
Walk Score: 98
This newly condo-converted, lower unit has in-unit laundry and a deeded patio. It’s two blocks from Columbus Avenue. There is a pet restriction limiting you to one pet with a 30-lb maximum weight. And one of the bedrooms is painted a bold red.

817 Union
Russian Hill
List Price: $775,000
HOAs: $304
1-car tandem parking
Walk Score: 92
Initially listed in mid-November for $799,000, the seller has come down a bit in price in the new year. This is also a unit in a newly converted condo building and it was remodeled in 2009. There’s a den in addition to the two bedrooms and hardwood floors. Maybe the seller is ready to make a deal.

524 Filbert
Telegraph Hill
List Price: $795,000
HOAs: $534.02
Walk Score: 94
This top-floor flat has restored plank floors, a sweet kitchen, formal dining room and great views. The dues are high now, but the fee is temporary because the roof is being replaced. It’s likely they’ll go back down to their normal $370 level after the project is completed. Though there’s no deeded parking with this unit, the seller has a leased space for $400/mo. The unit was last sold in December 2008 for $665,000.

[And if you’re wondering why I’m not linking to property Web sites, it’s because none came up in Google searches for any of these homes. Sellers, make sure you insist on a property site with professional photography if you want to compete for the buyers out there.]
