“Immediate Relief from Quarantine Fatigue”

608 Peralta provides the perfect refuge right now.  The space itself is tranquil, with an efficient floor plan that lives large.  The additional features of direct access use of outdoor space, plenty of garage storage and a bonus office make it easy to shelter in place and work from home without sacrifice.  With new maple floors, a kitchen with shining Quartz counters and a bath with a new vanity and lighting, the condo is spruced and ready for new occupants.  And the location, just steps from one of the city’s best open spaces for hiking – Bernal Hill Park – make a safe and socially distanced stroll a spectacular opportunity to enjoy something nothing can take away from a San Franciscan:  the amazing views we have of our fair city.

Bernal Heights is built on a section of the former Rancho Rincon de las Salinas y Potrero Viejo, granted to Jose Cornelio Bernal by the governor of Alta California in 1839. For a long while, all that was on the hill was his house, but Bernal’s population grew significantly after the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake and Fire. The flames stopped at 20th Street, leaving Bernal mostly unharmed and refugees took shelter in 250 earthquake shacks set up in Precita Park. They later moved these structures to empty lots, populating a significant portion of Bernal in this way.  In the 1930s, the top of the hill ring road was built, making the views accessible to autos.  In the 1950s, the section of Bernal containing 608 Peralta was built and the city was thinking of building all the way to the top Diamond Heights style.  Fortunately, local legend says, the residents banded together to make the top of the hill an official park in the 1960s.  The park is a popular (and socially distanced) gathering spot for local residents particularly in the evening to watch the sunset and swing.  The new residents of 608 Peralta will be frequent visitors I’m sure!
