Once home to San Francisco’s storied amusement park, Playland at the Beach, this beachfront land now houses an incredibly well-run condo community where you’ll find this amply sized 1028 square foot condo with a dramatic ocean view. 


A practical floor plan comprises an entrance foyer with a hall closet, a sizable open concept living, dining room, two spacious bedrooms - two sparkling clean bathrooms, and generous closet space.  


Enhancing the sizable great room is a decorative fireplace (that offers the option of returning the hearth to function as a wood-burning unit) and a stunning wall of mirrors reflecting Ocean Beach. The ocean view kitchen is spacious and complemented with brand new stainless steel appliances, including a Samsung dishwasher, exterior vented microwave range hood, and a modern stove that includes convection and air fry systems. There are copious amounts of cabinet and counter space plus a breakfast bar. The charming balcony accessed through the living room or primary bedroom presents beautiful ocean and sunset vistas with a pleasant outlook of the verdant and expansive garden courtyard below. The two bedrooms and bathrooms are generous in size, and the tiled master bathroom, ​with its ​soothing color palette, is wonderfully remodeled. ​Other enhancements include fresh paint, new carpet, porcelain tile floors, and in-unit laundry with never-used machines. 


The secure underground garage offers one car parking, additional storage, and access to the gym, bike storage, and arts & crafts room. The building’s recently installed state-of-the-art Butterfly secure entry system gives residents an extra level of security with the ability to create customizable virtual keys that allow scheduled building access for guests and deliveries, plus records all building entries.


The location is fantastic! The home is across the street from Ocean Beach and is walkable to the outdoor fun of Land’s End, Golden Gate Park, Sutro Park, and the Presidio. Nearby shopping options include a Safeway across the street and the commerce of Balboa Street and Geary Blvd. Do not miss this excellent opportunity!

Comprising the entire northwestern corner of San Francisco is the Outer Richmond neighborhood. Its coastal presence is vast as it hugs the Pacific Ocean with the fog blanketing the neighborhood in return.

Traditionally an expansive sand dune, along with all of its neighbors, the Outer Richmond wasn’t developed until the early- to mid-1900s. A fleet of single-family row houses spread across the area, at first with varied styles, filling in the area over the years and creating a wider variety of housing options for residents.

The neighborhood is dotted with San Francisco destinations. Across its western border is Ocean Beach, teeming with tourists and locals visiting its various attractions, and just a bit further north, the more private Baker Beach. Here on the coast, you’ll find the famous Cliff House — originally built in 1863 — a destination that attracted multiple U.S. presidents, prominent San Franciscans, and local politicians. Today it stands in its third complete construction, still a beacon of San Francisco in spite of changing form over the decades.

Geary Boulevard is home to many restaurants, small essential stores, cafes and grocers, but not as dense in commercial businesses here as it is further east. Below the southern border is Golden Gate Park and encasing the rest of the neighborhood is Lincoln Park. Lincoln Park is home to the the Legion of Honor (one of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco), the Lincoln Park Municipal Golf Course, and a portion of the Coastal Trail that runs about six miles along the bluff above the sea, from Baker Beach to Ocean Beach.

The Outer Richmond’s unique location captures the hearts of its residents and visitors alike. Living here is a paradise for those seeking prime residential and outdoor living all wrapped up into one, with big city amenities available at a moment’s notice.
