340 Sanchez Street

Classic San Francisco Victorian Flat in the Heart of the Castro

340 Sanchez is a 2-bed, 1-bath, 1-car parking, big-windowed, 11-foot-ceiling Victorian condominium that’s a true San Francisco classic with a coveted Castro/Mission Dolores location. The ≈ 1,100 sqft home comes with a deeded storage room and its kitchen/dining area walks right out onto a lush shared back garden. While 340 retains qualities that make Victorians so special — the millwork, wood floors and a cast iron, clawfoot tub — there are solid updates too, including a concrete foundation and smart layout that separates the two bedrooms (one looks out to the hidden-garden feel backyard and the other has a ceiling fan to keep things cool). A kitchen island with a brand new gas cooktop and pendant lights overhead is the perfect setting to make all those great meals. Other updates include a new sink, garbage disposal and updated LED cabinet lighting that brightens the space dramatically. A generous French-door refrigerator, dishwasher and pantry round out the kitchen. There are new LED light fixtures alongside antique chandeliers that literally sparkle and gleam. Set in a clutch of Victorians and part of a two-unit HOA, 340 is located on a relatively serene segment of Sanchez Street that is nevertheless surrounded by some of the most energetic and engaging parts of the City as you’re so close to Dolores Park and the rest of the Castro's attractions but you might not know it if you’re home in your sanctuary on Sanchez Street. 

This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of classic San Francisco that won’t last long.

Real estate is always changing and evolving. Because it’s based on people and people are, well people. Therefore, real estate can be complex and as fickle as it is surprising. And while the information and knowledge on this site is considered to be accurate and correct, it cannot be warranted. Market conditions in San Francisco, in California, and the world can change with a tweet or a sneeze and is beyond anyone’s control as hard as we try.

In San Francisco, things like local, state and federal tax regulations can change quickly leading to big implications that take time to be realized or appreciated. Other factors like rent control rules, eviction control, lending practices and standards, building and zoning regulations are just a few of the other things like pandemics, forest fires or mortgage rates that can change with little or no notice. All of these things and other intangible factors may well impact market values and performance. So keep your wits about you and keep in touch with us. 

Kevin is a licensed California attorney but focuses on real estate about 99.9 percent of the time. It’s important to note that while you can’t take the attorney out of him he will not be acting as your attorney here. To the larger point, you should also seek out qualified folks who work in their respective sectors if you have further questions about X, Y or Z; we have referrals too if you need.
