509 PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE is a sensational top floor condominium inside a polished two-unit building located in a great spot of Potrero Hill, and next to Dogpatch. This spacious three-bedroom, three-bath condo features breathtaking views of the bay, bridge, and downtown from every room.

The gourmet chef’s kitchen was masterfully remodeled in 2017 to include granite counters, high-end appliances, custom wood cabinetry, and a distinctive dining counter.  The home’s open dining and living room is offset by a magnificent floor-to-ceiling, stone wood burning fireplace that creates a warm and welcoming dining atmosphere. Brand new ebony hardwood floors, custom paint, recessed lighting and direct access to a small walk out balcony completes this main living area.

On the second level, you’ll find two exceptionally large sized bedrooms—one of which features an elegant en suite bathroom with a shower over tub, custom vanity, mirrored double closets—as well as a full guest bathroom. Follow up the central staircase to a fabulous private outdoor deck (513 SqFt) and take in the wonderful bay and city views. The top floor private master suite also includes an elegant en suite bathroom with custom vanity, multiple skylights, his and her closets with double mirrors, a corner floor-to-ceiling wood burning fireplace, and stunning water views.

One car, side by side parking, additional storage space, and a private washer and dryer are located in the shared garage. Monthly HOA dues of $170 and cover building insurance and reserves. Informal HOA self-managed by owners of each unit in the building.

Rich in history, Potrero Hill originally served as Native American hunting grounds and rich farmland.

But the late 1800s saw a wave of immigrants from Italy, Ireland and Scotland populating the land. In fact, so dense was its Celtic immigrant population that, as recently as the early 20th century, Potrero Hill was referred to as Scottish Hill.

Potrero Hill would remain home to blue collar, working-class families until the mid 1990s, when gentrification and the dot-com era made the neighborhood more attractive to the white collar professional set.

In a Few Words

Easy commute access

Living Here

Thanks in part to it weekly newspaper, The Potrero View, and the century-old Potrero Hill Neighborhood House, used by residents for town meetings, recitals, and other events, Potrero Hill has a community feel all of its own.

Cafe dining is also popular with locals, and shopping and nightlife choices abound. All is within walking distance, and it’s worth the trek up and down hills to get to your favorite spot.

Homes in Potrero Hill are comprised of free-standing houses (many built in Victorian architecture), town homes, flat-style condominiums, warehouse spaces, and lofts and multi-unit buildings.

And if you’re looking for a view, Potrero Hill doesn’t disappoint: many residences enjoy outstanding city views from the 300-foot high hill.


Common wisdom says Lombard Street is the crookedest street in San Francisco, but that honor actually goes to Potrero Hill’s own Vermont Street.

Why Potrero Hill?

Perhaps due to its sunny disposition (this area of the City gets more sun than most), Potrero Hill has attracted a lively mix of professionals and artists. There’s also a high level of local pride, as evidenced in the gardens, lawns, and green spaces that neighbors and City groups alike maintain with exquisite care.
