Get ready to be greeted by a pleasant (and bright) surprise, as you walk into this top floor end-unit with 17’ sky-high ceilings and a wall of windows that flood the condo with natural light. Located in the heart of the Civic Center, you will have unmatched access to some of San Francisco’s largest government and cultural institutions, not to mention the proximity to shopping, nightlife and venues that host an array of various festivities that provide something for everyone to enjoy. While this central location offers plenty of adventure nearby, this thoughtfully laid out multi-level condo offers you equally tempting reasons to stay in. Step outside the glass double doors, onto the private balcony to have your morning coffee before retreating to the upstairs loft that is your home office, where the outdoor views will follow you.
If you prefer an outdoor breeze to start or end your day with, just head downstairs to the lush courtyard to take in a moment of peace among the greenery. This airy condo provides everything you need to feel right at home and lends its airy space to allow you to welcome others as if it was theirs too. Entertaining company by the gas-burning fireplace while making dinner in the kitchen is made easy by this open-floor layout. And when it’s time for bed, you’ll look forward to retreating into your primary suite with an en-suite bathroom and walk-in closet. The well appointed second bedroom and bathroom is close enough to be on the same floor as the primary, but far enough away where comfort and privacy are maximized. To seal the deal, this condo has an in-unit washer and dryer tucked away in its own closet and optimized storage capabilities with built-in cabinetry throughout the unit.
Feel at ease with secure 1 car garage parking located right next to the elevator and a lobby that requires a key fob to access any doors.
The Civic Center contains many of the city’s largest government and cultural institutions. It has two large plazas (Civic Center Plaza and United Nations Plaza) and a number of buildings in classical architectural style. Those buildings include The Bill Graham Civic Auditorium , the War Memorial Opera House, and the Davies Symphony Hall. Civic Center’s central location makes it the center of many of the City’s festivals and parades and parties including San Francisco’s Gay Pride Parade, the City’s Earth Day celebration (which attracts 15,000+ people), the St. Patrick’s Day parade and the San Francisco LovEvolution party. Transportation is great, on Market Street you can hop on to BART, the Muni Metro, the F (Market historic streetcar line), or many Muni bus lines.
Civic Center is very central and a close walk to the hip surrounding establishments of Hayes Valley, Japantown, Fillmore shopping, and the Jazz district. In these areas, you will find a myriad of chic boutique shopping, cultural cuisines, and lively jazz music. 601 Van Ness truly is in the heart of Civic Center, and Civic Center is in the heart of San Francisco. With everything this area has to offer, and with its very central location, Civic Center truly deserves being the centerpiece of San Francisco.
