Here’s a story that may sound all too familiar. On a vibrant spring day, in the heat of a sizzling housing market, two determined buyers set out to search for their ideal single family house in the western neighborhoods of San Francisco. Parking, a private garden and room to grow into the interior were among their top criteria. There were five houses on the tour and with each visit they learned of fast-approaching offer dates and expectations of dramatic overbids pushing well beyond the limits of their budget. On a whim, they decided to look at a newly built condominium project at 1490 Ocean Ave: A luxe boutique building with only 15 units. The state-of-the art finishes, smart floor plan and a ridiculously large exclusive-use deck made it easy to abandon the tortured pursuit of a single family house and make this remarkable condo their home.
