38 Bryant #904 offers nautical theme

I am proud to announce a new listing: 38 Bryant Street #904. Located at The Portside, which honors the city’s maritime heritage with its waterfront setting and architectural features reminiscent of a cruise ship, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom South Beach condo enjoys the fresh air and wide-open scenery of the Embarcadero shoreline.

This unit amplifies the nautical theme with curved glass windows and porthole openings in the kitchen and living room, with a functional “split” floor plan placing the bedrooms on either side of the living room. This enhances privacy for both bedrooms.

Portside is one of the first buildings to go up in the South Beach neighborhood. It has two buildings. Portside I is at 38 Bryant and Portside II is at 403 Main. Portside I is smaller and enjoys the advantage of having an outdoor pool with spectacular water views and the fitness center, along with the on-site manager.

People love Portside for the location and the architecture, which is reminiscent of a 1930s cruise ship. While it was completed in 1994, the architecture and finishings have proved to be timeless; the homes with original baths and kitchens don’t have a dated feeling to them. The other advantage of an older building is that all the kinks have been worked out over the years. It’s a happy HOA with a healthy budget and reserves that is smoothly run.

For convenience, the MUNI light rail is just outside the front door and there is quick access to the Bay Bridge and Southbound freeways. Special amenities within the building include onsite management, fitness room and swimming pool with dramatic bay and bridge views.
