SF Chronicle features Kevin Wakelin’s luxurious and smart Dolores Heights condo

Hot Property: Luxurious Dolores Heights condo for less than the median price in San Francisco

Indulgent design couples with tech-savvy amenities atop Liberty Hill in Dolores Heights.

“This is a home in a world-class location that’s been designed to the last square-inch,” said Kevin Wakelin of Pacific Union Real Estate, who is listing 3758 21st St. for $1.149 million. “And it’s less than the median price in San Francisco.”

The median price for a two-bedroom in San Francisco is $1.25 million, according to stats from Trulia.

Located on the ground floor of a trilevel Victorian built in 1907, the two-bedroom enjoys an open floor plan and a wealth of designer finishes. The unit is part of a tenancy-in-common and includes a private view patio that extends to a shared backyard with a fire pit, an outdoor kitchen and a water feature. Technological highlights include NEST thermostats, Aiphone intercom and keyless entry and CAT 5 wiring.

“People see the views of downtown, the garden and the finishes, and they are blown away,” Wakelin said.

Immediately upon opening the front door, the landscaped backyard comes into focus through 20-foot floor-to-ceiling windows in the great room.

Oak parquet flooring spans the residence, complemented by stained timber trim. A Montigo linear fireplace warms the great room as recessed LED lights illuminate the interior. A bar area left of the fireplace anchors a far corner of the great room.

Stainless steel appliances, including a Liebherr refrigerator and a Bertazzoni range, accessorize a kitchen finished with Statuario marble counters, a built-in wine rack and Baldwin hardware.

Beyond the great room waits a private patio that’s partially sheltered by the deck from the unit above. The patio extends to a level lawn and communal patio shared by the three units.

Both bedrooms feature wood-framed windows and closets with built-in shelving. The master suite’s spa bathroom includes a Hydro Systems bathtub beside a shower with a body sprayer, and quartz counters finish each bathroom.
