Open tonight: 220 Lombard Street #114

Late notice, I know, but I’m holding a twilight tour of my listing at 220 Lombard Street #114 tonight from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.

This unusual one-bedroom garden condominium retreat is set at the base of historic Telegraph Hill. A corner orientation offers enough room for both living and dining with a wraparound deck that provides outdoor space and overlooks a quiet courtyard that in due time will abound with greenery and plantings.

During the current owner’s tenure, the home saw upgrades that include hardwood floors and newer baseboards as well as upgrades to lighting and plumbing fixtures, a re-glazed tub and sink and new shower door. The appliances are stainless steel and the refrigerator is brand new.

The new owner will also enjoy extra storage as well as parking for one car – especially helpful in this neighborhood. Homeowner’s dues are $695.68 per month; these include water, garbage, insurance and building reserves.

Built in 1992, the Parc Telegraph condominiums boast a gracious street presence with an around-the-clock doorman as well as fitness center for sweating out the stress and clubroom that’s perfect for everyday gatherings with friends and neighbors. The complex also boasts a guest suite that can be reserved for visitors at a reasonable daily rate (imagine that – no in-house guests!).

Telegraph Hill is a vibrant neighborhood that is one of San Francisco’s original Seven Hills. It’s quieter than adjoining North Beach but extremely convenient to the nightlife scene – without the hassle and noise. And don’t forget about the wild parrots!
