1 Ecker (16 Jessie) Unit 406 Hits The Market, Monday Open House Was Packed

You may have already seen the press my good friends over at Curbed gave to this awesome condo in the heart of downtown San Francisco (Financial District/Yerba Buena), but if not, here you go: 16 Jessie (1 Ecker) #406, Junior 1br/1ba, $495,000

Sustainable down to its very foundation, this century-old building (1 Ecker) was painstakingly restored and updated with brand-new modern interior fixtures and finishes. This top floor, Junior 1br, 1ba unit features soaring 12′ ceilings, exposed brick, open kit/liv area, bamboo floors, Cesarstone kit countertops, espresso cabinetry, stackable Whirlpool High Efficiency W&D, Bosch Energy Star appliances, addl. storage, bike parking, & shared roof deck/bbq area. Furniture is negotiable. Walk to shops, restaurants, public transportation, Ferry Building, and so much more. This is the perfect Urban dwelling for anyone.

On a side note, this was the first ever Open House I’ve done on a Monday evening and the traffic was through the roof. Perhaps this could be the first step to getting buyers, sellers, and agents their Sundays back! Many, many of the people through the door preferred the Monday evening showing over the standard Sunday 2-4pm window for open houses, citing their inability to do anything on Sundays because this window falls smack dab in the middle of the day. My vote is to get our weekends back. What about you?

I’ll have it open again:
Thursday 4/17 from 5:30-7:30pm
Saturday 4/19 from 2-4pm (my colleague will be there)
Tuesday 4/22 from 2:30-4pm
Offers, if any, will be reviewed Wednesday 4/23 @ noon.

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.

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.

Quick Flip at 733 Front Street

[Update 10/20/08: Sold, $1,725,000]

On the other side of the equation, let’s take a look at 733 Front #605.

One of the first resales at this conversion building down in the Financial District, #605 was sold through the sales office for $1,600,000 only about three months ago. The unit directly below it #505 was sold for around $1.7M and received three offers (floor plan was a bit different, but not by much). Unit 605 recently listed at $1,695,000 and boasts one of the few corner views, (not to mention 4 storage spaces), it is now in contract a mere 6 days after hitting the market.

This market is anybody’s guess, because it sure is making my head spin.
