Doma Loft Condo San Diego

Added by David Manes on Apr 30 3:34PM

Downtown San Diego has a very limited supply of true “Loft Style” condos. Defining features like 18 foot ceilings, wide open voluminous spaces and floor to ceiling windows are a rare commodity.  The essence of this masterful Little Italy condo includes abundant natural light, circulating bay breezes and sweeping views.

Consider this your perfect condo in Downtown San Diego.  Thinking of a pied-a’terre or second home?  For convenience, location and an abundance of things to do, this one can’t be beaten!

Doma Condo #305 (at 1780 Kettner Boulevard) offers all of this, and so much more!

Best Condos in Little Italy

Doma Lofts is an 8 story “concrete and steel” condo building.  Each homeowner lives in a well insulated cube–no noise from neighbors, hallways or elevators.  Floors 1, 3 and 5 are two story lofts.  This beautiful listing occupies the cool northeast corner of the building.  From various locations in the home, views extend from San Diego Bay to the San Diego Skyline.

The nuts and bolts of this amazing home include a large master bedroom with sitting room, 2 beautiful full bathrooms, a high end kitchen and two distinct living areas.  Its 1,394 sf feel much larger because of the high ceilings and windows.  The large wrap-around patio is a perch to enjoy sunsets over the Bay or the street scene 30 feet below.  It’s truly space to be experienced–proof that floorplans and square footage don’t define a living space!

The condo includes features rarely seen in urban life.  For example, a large, locked storage space/workshop is deeded to the property.  The space feels like a full basement–massive amounts of storage and work space.  The two parking spaces are NOT TANDEM and are wide enough that door dings can be avoided.

A second home in San Diego’s most Dynamic Neighborhood?

Since Doma was built 10 years ago,  the north side of Little Italy has become increasingly desirable.  India Street, the commercial center of the neighborhood, has enough Italian eateries packed into 4 blocks to fill your calendar for a month and never repeat!  Recently however, the trend has been to more diverse food choices.  Check out Ramen at Underbelly, Seafood at Ironsides and the chef driven samplings at PrepKitchen for a taste of not-Italian Little Italy foods.


This Little Italy Loft is also just one block removed from Little Italy’s Saturday morning Mercato.  This is a weekly farmers market and artisan gathering filling five blocks.  The neighborhood is also host to numerous festivals and concerts throughout the year.

This is the real measure of Doma Condo#305.  The atmosphere and buzz of a neighborhood.  To be five minutes from the airport.  And in an authentic neighborhood.  Viva San Diego!

Doma # 305 is listed at $789,000.  The monthly HOA is $526.  Please call or text Downtown San Diego Realtor David Manes for showings.  david.manes@welcometosandiego.com or (616)299-4760.

Bayside Condo For Sale

Added by David Manes on Mar 27 3:17PM

Among Downtown San Diego condos, it is generally acknowledged that Bayside Condos set the standard for quality. From the moment you walk into the building and are greeted by a competent, professional concierge and take in the stunning aesthetics of the Bayside lobby, the standard of excellence is set.
Marble floors, millwork and mirrors, and 16 foot chandeliers present an atmosphere that is both casual and luxurious. This theme carries through to common areas, amenities and individual homes at Bayside Condos.

Bayside Condo #1004

Newly listed, Bayside #1004, provides a perfect platform for life in Downtown San Diego.  Located on the building’s southeast corner over 100 feet in the air, the 1,462 square foot condo offers abundant sunshine and fabulous city and water views.  The home’s entry hallway provides a gallery for the homeowner’s art.  It also separates the “bedroom wing” from the home’s primary living areas.

The living area is a great room setting with a large island dividing the kitchen, from a generous dining room and panoramic corner living room area.  Bayside condos are obviously centered around striking kitchen designs.   This home features  imported Snadero cabinetry in the kitchen that have a very contemporary feel of darkly stained wood and steel pulls.

The developer truly went beyond the standard by sourcing the kitchen appliances  from the best manufacturers, including Viking and Miele.  Caesar Stone countertops and backsplashes contribute to both functionality and visual appeal.


Two well proportioned bedrooms are provided.  The master, with a California King bed provides lots of space to move around.  The large walkin closet also has numerous builtins.  The master bath is finished in luxurious marble, with the same Italian cabinetry as the kitchen.  It includes both a standup shower and soaking tub.

 The second bedroom is beautifully sized, and located only 2 steps from the guest bath.  Also rarely seen in downtown San Diego condos, the home has a large laundry room–not just a closet for washer and dryer.  It features full size Whirlpool appliances.

And amenities second to none

On Bayside’s third floor residents and their guests enjoy a complete package of amenities.  The pool and spa deck is equipped with numerous seating and lounging areas.  It is surrounded by a beautiful outdoor kitchen and party space.  The Bayside gym is large, clean and well equipped.

Throwing a party?  Facilities include a catering kitchen, community room (with 4 flat screen TVs), a pool table and a variety of conversation areas.  A few steps away is the “wine room,” a conference/meeting room AND theater.  You’re never constrained or limited to the walls of your condo at Bayside! 


Ideally located for Downtown San Diego

Bayside is the northern most of the condos located in the Columbia District.  Its location is in the “front row” of condos, nearest the Embarcadero and the excitement of the new development on the waterfront.  Two new parks are being built just across the street on the grounds of San Diego’s County Admin building.

Residents have always enjoyed the convenience of Little Italy, with its numerous restaurants, cafes and weekly Saturday farmers market.  Check out this link to The Little Italy Mercato.

Now, Bayside residents also find themselves only steps away from Downtown San Diego’s newest entertainment district, The Headquarters

Bayside #1004 is listed at $849,000.  The HOA fee is $763/month.

Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego

Added by tabitha on May 15 2:12PM

Southern California is well known for it’s outdoor /active lifestyle. When I first moved to San Diego I was so excited to see the amount of active people here. No matter what the weather or time of day, I always see people out biking and running. I immediately caught the fever myself and have been running and hiking almost every day since. My usual run route leads me through downtown along Seaport Village beside the bay up and around Harbor Island. Being able to enjoy this 10 mile run whenever I want is definitely a huge perk of living in Downtown San Diego!

Whether you are visiting from out of town or lucky enough to be a local San Diegian there are plenty of activities to keep you entertained year around. I am one of the lucky ones that call San Diego home and currently gearing up for the Rock N’ Roll Half Marathon taking place right here in San Diego on June 2nd. This event alone brings 30,000 participants and over 60,000 spectators from all across the globe to not only compete in a race but to also listen to some great music and be a part of an even greater party. The Psychedelic Furs will be headlining this huge event with their 80’s inspired music and will accompany other bands all along the course as well as cheer squads and pep groups from local schools.  This is going to be the first “BIG”’ race in San Diego post Boston Marathon tragedy and security will be at an all time high for this event assuring that we will all be protected and able to enjoy our wonderful city but be aware of your surroundings ans as always “see something, say something.”

If you are planning on participating in this amazing event be sure to register as soon as you can so you do not miss out. I will see you there!!!

This is the view I have running along Harbor Island
