A sweet property at 386 Richland Ave. feels like something out of “Tales of the City” author Armistead Maupin’s San Francisco

This one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo (with a hot tub and parking) is listed for $799,000.

The unit

The condo itself is 850 square feet, residing in a vintage Bernal Heights multi-unit circa 1900. The MLS listing on Redfin shows the property type classified as “Modern/high tech,” but you’ll see there’s more retro than new-fangled in the gallery above.


Inside, the living room features a fireplace and built-ins. The kitchen, updated certainly at some point, has lots of counter space and a sunny dining nook.

The bedrooms feel spacious, all natural light and gleaming hardwood floors, leading to a bright black and white full bath.

The extras

Outside, we find the real Maupin magic: There is an actual garage with room for storing stuff and one-car parking dedicated to this unit.

There’s also a shared yard and hot tub for relaxing and/or mingling with friends and neighbors. The building is close to two parks for more of the same.

In Maupin’s day this unit would have cost a lot less; today 386 Richland Ave., unit B asks $799,000– and comparable recent sales put the actual market value over $830,000.

But those prices are part of today’s tales of the city.
