1020 Union Street #23

Asking: $1,750,000


This charming Bay view cooperative apartment complex, originally constructed in 1921 by architect T. Patterson Ross, is an urban oasis in the heart of Russian Hill. Situated in a romantic setting, entered via the steps of tranquil tiered gardens, the ivy covered buildings of Union Terrace are surrounded by colorful flowers and blossoms, fountains and koi ponds.

A large entrance foyer has steps leading to the main living level. The spacious living room with fireplace and adjacent dining room enjoy spectacular unobstructed views of the Bay, Alcatraz and Coit Tower. A sheltered terrace is the perfect spot for morning coffee or a glass of wine while overlooking the Bay, and is for the exclusive use of apartment #23.

The main level includes two spacious bedrooms, one bathroom, chef’s kitchen with gas stove top and granite counters and an adjacent family room or breakfast room. The back stairs lead to a guest suite with nice outlooks, two closets and a full bath with Jacuzzi tub. The adjacent private storage room houses the laundry facility and additional storage. There is one car parking located on Filbert Street.

The apartment is uniquely situated in the middle of the complex with no one above, and detached on three sides offering a sense of privacy within this small community of 29 homes. Although the kitchen and baths have been updated, the property exudes original charm that includes matchstick hardwood floors, decorative cut-glass windows, high ceilings and French paned windows. An abundance of natural light streams in throughout the day. Surrounding windows offer a picturesque perspective of Russian Hill gardens and homes.

HOA dues of $648.77 per month include professional management, maintenance, reserves, steam heat, water, garbage and common area insurance. The sale will be subject to Approval of the Union Terrace Cooperative Board.
