Formal Dining Room w/ Box-beam ceiling, and period details
La Boulange de Cole Valley
Crepes on Cole
Local Grocery Market
I have this fabulously luxurious top floor, 3 bed, 2 bath Edwardian condominium with amazing panoramic views to the North from the living area and South from the bedrooms, on a quiet tree lined street in Cole Valley, coming on the market this Friday 9/12, and you get the first look.
The home features gorgeous hardwood floors, a spacious, bright and open formal living room (wired for surround sound) with a fireplace. Formal dining room with period details, built-in cabinets and box-beam ceiling. Walk through the Butler’s pantry into your bright, open and large designer kitchen with Caesarstone countertops, custom cabinets, skylight, extra storage and A+ appliances. Both bathrooms have been remodeled by Waterworks and feature all of today’s amenities. Laundry room has side by side washer & dryer, and floor to ceiling cabinets. The entire condo has refinished floors, new carpet, and new paint. It also comes with one car parking, a shared yard, and did I mention views, views, views. Because the property is completely separated from other structures on all sides, the home is incredibly bright…a rarity in San Francisco.
Soar above Cole Valley in this truly remarkable property you don’t want to miss.

Situated in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in San Francisco, this NOPA flat is not to be missed. You can walk to everything, transportation is a breeze, and with approximately 1500 +/- square feet of living space, what more could you need. Located at 1674 Hayes, this unit features 3 bedrooms, 2 1/4 bath (2nd bedroom has a sink), 1 parking space for a small car, soaring ceilings, hardwood floors, laundry room, fireplace, and a shared yard. The bedrooms are very generous in size and have tons of closet space for all those shoes and suits. The long hallway leads you to the rear of the property where the incredibly light and bright great room allows for dining, entertaining, cooking, and lounging all in the same space.
We will be listing this property 9/5, first open house 9/7 from 2-4pm, and available for private showings anytime. Price will be $1,095,000, and the offer date (if any) is still TBD.

If you live in the area, and were wondering what your home might be worth, or what we expect to sell this flat for, I’d be happy to chat.
This top floor, one bedroom, one bath, ultra luxury condominium in the heart of San Francisco will be hitting the market (with any luck) on Friday August 9th [It's now officially on the market], but since you’re a fan of theFrontSteps, you get to see it here first.
This unit is not only on the top floor, but also on the North East corner and features soaring 12 foot ceilings, open kitchen/living area, bamboo flooring, walk-in closet, custom kitchen pantry, Cesarstone kitchen countertops with bar seating, espresso cabinetry, stackable Kenmore High Efficiency Washer & Dryer, Bosch Energy Star appliances (Dishwasher, Gas Range & Hood), Samsung French Door Refrigerator, microwave, and a 64″ Samsung Plasma TV already perfectly mounted to the wall! This unit comes with additional storage, bike parking, and all of the furniture could be included as well. (Parking for one car is currently subleased nearby at 18 Lansing St for $225/mo. Although it is highly likely the sublease would be honored, it cannot be guaranteed.)
What makes 1 Ecker so attractive and in such demand? 1 Ecker (16 Jessie) is an appealing blend of modern and timeless San Francisco charm, and sustainable down to its very foundation. The original century-old building structure was painstakingly restored and updated with brand-new modern interior fixtures and finishes in every bedroom and bath. The soaring arched windows are 100% recycled, and all of the units were restored with sustainability in mind. Nestled among some of San Francisco’s tallest structures, the grand windows and high ceilings fill this residence with generous amounts of natural light, while the original brick structure is a welcome backdrop for modern, sophisticated living.
1 Ecker’s common area amenities include the comfortable rooftop lounge, with grill and plenty of seating for entertaining a large group or enjoying a quiet dinner for two. Sleek, comfortable modular seating allows for adjustment to meet your group’s needs, as art form meets function. Exotic foliage in vibrant hues frames an antique Balinese water fountain, a tranquil centerpiece. The lounge grill is ready to serve up favorites year-round.. The interior courtyard offers a stylish visual backdrop featuring exotic, vibrant foliage. Common areas are maintained by the building’s Home Owners Association, and monthly HOA dues of $500.68 for this unit help serve to keep them in pristine order. HOA dues also include water, garbage, and professional property management services.
The location of this wonderful city home (go ahead…map it) puts you steps away from tons of shops, restaurants, clubs, art museums (MOMA), theaters (Metreon), Outdoor Parks (Yerba Buena), conference centers (Moscone), World Champion baseball stadium (Go Giants!), and so much more. Multiple Zipcar® locations are within walking distance for pay-as-you-go car convenience, and the future Transbay Transit Center steps away at 1st and Mission Streets will house 11 transportation systems, including AC Transit, BART, Caltrain, Muni &; Amtrak, for easy access to all of the Bay Area and beyond.
This is certainly a one-of-a-kind unit in a one-of-a-kind property that you won’t want to miss.

Wowza, wowza, wowza! Those of you that have been reading a long time know that if I go quiet, I’m probably busy. That’s exactly the case. I currently have 4 properties in contract, and two listed as active on MLS (both of which I expect will go into contract soon). Once the dust settles, I’ll have many stories to share, and much more wisdom to impart on all of you. Until then, enjoy the most recent market snapshot I sent on Friday.
Shameless plug is the name of the game here. Moments ago we chopped the price of 2185 Bush #307 from $869,000 (previously $899,000) down to $799,999. Are you kidding! This is a 3 bed, 2 bath, 1290 square foot condo with high ceilings, wood burning fireplace, patio, and so much more in one of the best locations around (we could almost call this Pacific Heights, but it is technically in Lower Pacific Heights), so please spread the word.
If you, or anybody you know, are interested in a great condo in a superb location, drop us a line or come visit the property Sunday 7/26 from 2-4pm for an Open House. This is a great unit and it (hopefully) won’t last long on the market at this new price.
We started out at $899,000 (now $869,000), interest was high, but the market has spoken. It’s time for a change, and what better way to change than drop the price $30,000 on this awesome top floor condo in the best location. Tell your friends!
We just chopped $20,000 (now $659,000) off the price and that would certainly pay for a few beers at a Giants game. (You could stumble there, this unit is so close.) Top floor, soaring ceilings, bright, 2 bathrooms, modern kitchen, hip and urban. Tell your friends!
For those of you that simply love to say, “I toldja so.” Have at it. Your day is here.
Where readers ask and we (the community) try to answer:
This is a doozy of a question, so put your game faces on:
Being fairly new at the SF real estate/landlording game, I am still discovering the fascinating mine field of Rent Control laws through the numerous websites on the subject.
At least FrontSteps.com somehow manages to make it entertaining. Maybe you can help me with a few beginner questions here.
Here is my situation :
I plan to buy a 2 unit home (both vacant) with a friend as a TIC in SF and subject to Rent Control. After occupying one unit each for a year, we hope to by-pass the lottery and go for condo conversion to own one each. Does this sound like a reasonable plan?
Question 1: During the 2-3 following years needed to complete the conversion, do both of us still need to occupy the units or can we rent one or both?
Question 2: Once converted, is it true that if we rent (to brand new tenants) we will still suffer from Rent Control (because we are the subdivisers) ?
Question 3: If so, why does everybody want to condo-convert? Is it only to make a 10-15% profit by selling the condo just after? Isn’t it to enjoy renting the place free of RC at all?
(I understand that another benefit is to get separate ownerships instead of the TIC).
Question 4: Assuming the answer to 2) is yes, is there any loophole? For instance if I live in my condo and I buy the second condo from my friend, then maybe I can rent this one exempt of RC?
question 5: If I live in the unit and rent 1 room, is it still under Rent Control?
Thanks for your help.
Let’s see what replies we can get from the readers in the comments below, and we’ll fill in the blanks just as soon as we can. It sure would be nice if David Gellman or Andy Sirkin would provide some insight (and maybe win a client as a result).
Thanks for reading and thanks for this lovely little quote, “At least FrontSteps.com somehow manages to make it entertaining.” We aim to please, and entertain, so we have to ask, “Have you nominated your sexiest Realtor today?”
