Home of the week: The Size of a House with the Light of a Condo

February 17, 2012

I think that people often don’t realize that top floor condos can be both larger and brighter than houses in San Francisco.  That is certainly the case for 832 Euclid Avenue.  With four bedrooms and four baths, and at over 3000 square feet of sparklingly refreshed Edwardian elegance, it is far larger than the average home in the City.  And brighter.  And more private.  Top floor condos tend to be brighter than homes because they are not shaded by other buildings or most urban trees.  In addition, the height gives them an automatic level of privacy without the window coverings necessary for a single family house, which generally has the main living areas closer to street level.  To have an “above it all” cat-perch perspective there’s really nothing better than a top floor flat.  And this one also has four car parking, tons of period details, two fireplaces and a great location to boot.  Listed by Mary MacPherson at Paragon.  Let me know if you want to take a look!
