Moments from every convenience, amazing restaurants, and parks galore, this Lower Pacific Heights condo has plenty of convenience and green space of its own. The rarely available top floor rear unit enjoys a peaceful atmosphere, with no neighboring units on either side or above and a private balcony overlooking lush gardens below. Soak up the sun while reading, working, or savoring some “me time” – or head down to the courtyard for socially distant happy hour with the neighbors (a cherished building tradition during the pandemic.)
The light-filled interior welcomes you with open entertaining spaces, hardwood floors, and treetop views from every room. An updated kitchen lends itself to hosting with stainless steel appliances and a breakfast bar, connected to spacious dining and living rooms. Try out new recipes as your guests mingle on the balcony or warm themselves by the fireplace.
There is plentiful storage, with three large closets and the unit’s exclusive use storage right next door. The main bedroom suite boasts a massive walk-in closet with custom shelving and barn door entrance. You’ll find another walk-in closet in the foyer as well as a laundry closet with stackable washer/dryer. Both bathrooms have been recently renovated; skylights highlight contemporary finishes.
One car garage parking.
Lower Pacific Heights offers home buyers a stylish, upscale-feeling neighborhood bolstered by an approachable, laid-back attitude. Within the confines of these blocks, you’ll find Japantown, the oldest and largest such enclave in the United States. From the spectacle of the Peace Plaza pagoda to the grandeur of St. Dominic’s Church, it really seems there’s something here for everyone. This area is a shopper’s delight, with bustling commercial centers along both Fillmore and Divisadero streets. When it comes time to eat, the possibilities are endless – from casual (B Patisserie, Palmers, Noosh) to award-winning (SPQR, Delfina). Evenings see the streets fill with patrons looking to dine at one of many gastronomic destinations, or music fans lining up at the Boom Boom Room and the adjacent historic Fillmore Theater. AMC Kabuki 8 is a welcome addition to the neighborhood; as the largest independent theater in the city, the Kabuki screens first run features and plays host to a number of film festivals, attracting cinephiles from all over the Bay Area. The neighborhood is home to an interesting mix of classic Victorian homes and mid-rise condo developments. As throughout much of the city, you’ll find wonderful diversity among your neighbors. You can get a picture of the sense of community that exists in this diverse pocket of the city each April during the Cherry Blossom Festival. Freeway access has been greatly improved in recent years thanks to the completion of the Octavia corridor freeway entrance, opening up the area to south and east bay commuters. If you’d like to dip your toes into the Northside life, Lower Pacific Heights is a great place to begin your search.
