2 Bedrooms/2 Bathrooms | 1,326 Sq Ft
Facts only: It’s a first-floor condominium that was completely renovated from a long-established butcher shop that was built in 1901, so it’s modern yet tasteful. Some features we love: walk-in closets, custom glasswork, bi-fold patio doors, gas fireplaces, high-end fixtures, and a low-maintenance shared garden perfect for indoor and outdoor entertaining.
Target audience: This place is perfect for quirky couples who want to get up close and personal with Castro in action. The condo is just a few blocks from Dubosse Park, so the yard is perfect for puppies. Off-leash dog paradise.
Neighbors: Located right in the heart of San Francisco, Nabe is within walking distance of Lower Haight, The Mission, and The Castro. For eight months of the year, there are Wednesday farmers’ markets and plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from.
good point: Rumors are circulating that the owner, who recently moved to Australia, is eager to sell and has slashed the price significantly. HOA he is $300 and hard to beat in the city.
minus: The 1930s-style custom glasswork on the building’s façade features the muscular back of a half-naked man hard at work in a factory. (The owners are a gay couple who design glass art.) Is this a positive or a negative? Only you can decide.
