What You Can Buy: Condos With Walker’s Paradise Scores

Location counts for a lot in San Francisco, and most condo buyers want to live in neighborhoods that offer services, restaurants, shops and public transportation in walking distance. I thought I would highlight a few of my favorite properties currently on the market that have excellent Walk Scores. Here are my picks:

77 Jersey
Noe Valley

3BR/1BA, 1 tandem pkg
HOA dues: $473.33/mo
List price: $1,349,000
Walk Score: 96

77 Jersey is an ideal location for buyers who take BART, and want to be a block from the 24th Street corridor that runs through both Noe Valley and the Mission. The condo itself is a handsome, first-floor unit with a formal dining room, eat-in kitchen and a nicely remodeled bathroom in an Edwardian building.

1701 Pierce #3
Lower Pacific Heights

2BR/2BA, 2 pkg
HOA dues: $300
List price: $1,395,000
Walk Score: 99

This top-floor, corner condo in a three-unit contemporary building at 1701 Pierce is chock full of amenities. Open floor plan, roof deck, in-unit laundry and two-car parking in a private garage. It’s in the center of it all, meaning you can fall out the door and head south on Divisadero to NoPa’s retail hub, or go north on Fillmore and enjoy all the restaurants and shops on that stretch. There are plenty of bus lines to get you downtown, too.

1591 Jackson #18
Nob Hill

1BR/1BA, 1 pkg
HOA dues: $606.03/mo
List price: $795,000
Walk Score: 99

I sold a one-bedroom condo at 1591 Jackson way back in October 2003 for $424,000, so these units obviously have appreciated well. #17 is a spacious, top-floor unit with a balcony. The building is technically in Nob Hill, but has more of a Russian Hill feel at the corner of Jackson and Polk—which means you can walk north or south on Polk and be in the heart of anything you need. Van Ness is nearby, with its bus line that will take you to Market Street and the Muni rail line connections.

207 King Street #708
Mission Bay

2BR/2.5BA, 1 pkg
HOA dues: $615/mo; $292/parking
List price: $2,488,000
Walk Score: 93

Glassworks was built in 2003, and Mission Bay has exploded around it. #708 is a two-level unit with a dead-on view of the ballpark, as well as Bay views. The unit has been nicely remodeled, and the luxurious master suite on the upper level is the real estate equivalent of a home run. Catch Muni and Caltrain nearby, walk to the Ferry Building, downtown, and a growing number of restaurants in South Beach and Mission Bay.

1245 16th Avenue
Inner Sunset

2BR/2BA, 2 pkg
HOA dues: $375/mo
List price: $1,199,000
Walk Score: 94

For the buyer who wants to be a stone’s throw from the 9th & Irving retail area, the N Judah to downtown and literally half a block from Golden Gate Park, 1245 16th Avenue is the home for you. This top-floor condo in a two-unit building has nice period detail, a second bathroom in the master, formal dining room, and two-car parking.

As always, give me a shout if you’re in the market—or about to be—and would like to schedule a private showing or chat about any of these properties [ | 415.823.4656}
