Charming One-Bedroom Condo
This bold four-unit Queen Anne Victorian with Classic Revival detail is home to this elegant one-bedroom, one-bath condo where a delightful container garden provides a welcoming path to the separate and private front door. Attributes of the interior are the living room with a classic San Francisco bay window, tall ceilings, and a beautifully refinished parquet hardwood floor. The remodeled kitchen features under cabinet lighting, stone counters, an abundance of high-quality custom cabinetry with clear pull-out pantry drawers, plus a lazy-Susan with a door activated light. Additional kitchen highlights are the European appliances, including a Gaggenau gas cooktop and oven, a Miele Dishwasher, and a well-organized laundry area. The spacious bedroom has a good-sized closet with organizing shelves and a newly installed hardwood floor. Anchoring the bathroom is a beautiful custom marble top vanity outfitted with an abundance of storage. The charming rear garden is accessed through a French door at the rear of the home, and in the basement, a super-sized storage room completes this offering.

" When I first approached Doug & Eduardo, they said they could have a sales presentation ready for me the next day. This was, to me, was an almost immediate clincher without even seeing the presentation. That kind of turnaround is exceptional. The presentation was professional and well thought out. The best part was, they didn't expect me to spend a lot of unnecessary money to get my condo ready for the market.
Not only did they manage the sale of my condo, they also managed projects for both my condo and the HOA. This was especially helpful as I didn't live nearby. I appreciated their willingness to step in and help get everything done in a timely manner.
As COVID wore on and people continued to leave the City, the sale took longer than expected. I am very grateful to have had the expertise of Doug & Eduardo to get me to the finish line. They kept in constant communication throughout the process and ultimately negotiated the best deal possible given the condo market.
I would not hesitate to recommend Doug & Eduardo to family and friends. Nor would I hesitate to use them again for any real estate deal in SF. Overall, I couldn't have asked for a better team! "

The Lower Pacific Heights neighborhood packs a punch for its size. It’s convenient central location is walkable to downtown with city buses flowing throughout for easy travel around town with freeway access not far from its borders.
The neighborhood is full of dining options, entertainment, and an unrivaled shopping experience. The area tends to cater to a wealthier clientele but is also dotted with small, independently owned grocers and boutiques.
Popular attractions in the neighborhood include Japan Center, where you can easily find 50 restaurants and sushi bars along with a number of post-dinner entertainment spots. The region’s heavy jazz, blues, and rock history resonates strongly in the neighborhood in popular music venues like The Fillmore and the Boom Boom Room. Another cherished amenity is the acclaimed Sundance Kabuki Cinema, screening first-run movies alongside exclusive indie and foreign films.
The neighborhood is filled with fairly affluent residents living in the abundance of Victorians that were built in the early 1900s. Also among the real estate lineup are newly constructed multi-family as well as single-family abodes. Hidden within one of these residential streets is the Broderick & Bush Street Mini Park. The park features an indoor swimming pool with classes and an outdoor green space often filled with exercise and fitness activities, a huge magnet for families and dog owners.
Lower Pacific Heights offers upscale living in a vibrant area with a perfect balance between residential and green space, with serious big-city personality.
