FOR SALE IN SAN FRANCISCO

Converted 1927 SOMA Warehouse Wows to the Tune of $2.9 Million

A refreshing break from the Victorian-lifestyle

The Commercial Grade Kitchen + Living Room

The view of 735’s great room.

Everything in this converted, design-heavy SOMA warehouse is what city living should be like, provided you can pay the price and yearn for a decidedly urban life.

FOR SALE IN SAN FRANCISCO

Under $700K Club: NoPa Mini Condo Asks $699,000

Bottom floor of renovated 1900 Victorian

livingroom_puppy

Mr Raffi makes himself at home at 913

Time again for the Under $700K Club, the inflation-adjusted version of our old Under $500K club. Here we showcase the few and the proud San Francisco homes that, even in this this time of seven-figure median home prices, have the courage to sell at a mere $700,000 or less (or at least open that low).

Today’s under-seven selection is 913 Central Avenue, a two bed, one bath condo in a NoPa Victorian that’s being offered at $699,000. It’s one of three units in a house that dates to at least 1900 but may well be older, and this 515-square-foot bottom floor pad last sold in 2012 for $551,000.
