Sticker Shock: San Francisco 1-Bedroom Sells for $2.3M
It may have sold for eight percent under the original asking price, but when you're talking about an 1,800-square-foot San Francisco condo playing in the $2.5-million club, who's really counting by the tens of thousands?
When it debuted on the market last month, the Nob Hill apartment at 1333 Jones instantly became San Francisco's most expensive one-bedroom listing -- as in, of all time -- at $2.495 million.
Granted, the apartment is in The Comstock, one of the city's most prestigious residential buildings. But when it comes to San Francisco co-ops, a fancy address only gets you so far.
So what does this elaborate eighth-floor beauty have that (no offense) you probably don't? For starters, the completely remodeled unit features hardwood floors throughout, as well as a modern, open-concept kitchen.
From there, turn your attention to two slab-marble bathrooms and a walk-in closet off the master bathroom. Finally, take in the northwest-facing floor-to-ceiling windows that give way to panoramic views of the Bay -- the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Coit Tower, yada yada yada.
Some might say the ultramodern work-of-art/apartment does slightly resemble a life-sized fishbowl, but its sleek architecture and design are awe-inspiring. And there's a bonus: The open floor plan includes frosted sliding glass doors that can be used to convert the office/den into a makeshift guest room.
Regretting not having put in an offer? Not to worry: another unit in The Comstock just popped up on the market. Measuring in at a cozy 1,200 square feet, but with larger balconies and a smaller price tag ($1.75 million), it's a steal. Gregg Lynn of Sotheby's International Realty - San Francisco Brokerage has the listing.
