Architecture and style of San Francisco condos

By
Real Estate Agent with Compass CA DRE# 01215160

You've decided that owning a San Francisco condominium is right for you, so what is the next step?

Typically, one starts with the basics: price range, number of bedrooms and parking needs and area of the city that appeals the most. 

Once we've narrowed those parameters, it's time to consider what type of building appeals. Victorian? Edwardian? Art Deco? Mid-Century? Modern? Hi-rise? Lo-rise?

Part of the charm of San Francisco is the eclectic mix of buildings in each particular neighborhood. Take Pacific Heights for instance. These pictures show examples of condo buildings all within a few blocks of each other.

Good morning, Lottie.. having travelled frequently to places where it's nothing but a morass of buildings all looking like each other (Russia, Sao Paolo, etc.), it's nice that San Francisco offers and eclectic mix of styles... perfect for an eclectic city!

Hello Nina Hollander and Brian England - I enjoy the eclectic styles of architecture here in the city. That might be one reason I find some suburbs difficult--too much sameness.

George Souto mirrored the question I was going to ask in his comment.  I was wondering what the basic price range would be.

Good morning George Souto and Myrl Jeffcoat - which condo building? The one in the first picture is high on Russian Hill, one of the few (only?) condo project Joseph Eichler undertook - very prestigious, fantastic views, doorman building. 2BRs might be $2,000,000 or more.

The older condo building on Gough St might see a 2BR in the 1.1M range and up, depending on extent of remodeling, views, etc.

Thanks, Roy Kelley . When someone tells me they want to buy a condo, we have to dig quite a bit deeper to narrow down the field.

Well, Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS -that's what I've always heard about boats/yachts! Might also be true with real estate before one sets realistic expectations.
