201 Sansome: An elegant private listing

I would like to present to you a listing that you won’t find on the Multiple Listing Service: 201 Sansome #403, a condo unit that redefines the concept of elegance. This home is located in The Royal, an elegant turn-of-the-century (1907) office building that was converted to condominiums in 2006. It was designed by Howell and Stokes Architects and features Georgian Revival style architecture with rich color and ornamentation. Common areas available to residents include an elegant lobby setting along with a spectacular roof deck.

The unit itself is located on the building’s desirable Pine Street side with southern exposure for optimal light as well as colonnade views of the Pacific Stock Exchange building just across the street – inspiring! This one-bedroom, one-bathroom home features cherry hardwood floors which add style and an in-unit washer/dryer which offers convenience. Its bathroom is exceptionally large and features a big, deep bathtub that’s perfect for relaxation after a busy day – or anytime. High ceilings and stainless-steel appliances are just a few of the other thoughtful details you’ll find in this home, which tax records reflect as 664 square feet.

This Central Financial District location enjoys an exceptional 99 WalkScore, with outstanding restaurants, shopping, museums and theaters right outside your door. You really can’t get much more convenient than this location.

The home is presently leased through March 2015 at $3,200 per month. The cooperative tenants request a 24-hour notice to show. Monthly homeowner’s fees are $593.21 and include water, garbage, building reserves and maintance as well as an on-site manager.
