Electra 2 BDR Condo for Sale with Bay Views
I am really excited about our new listing at Electra, a two-bedroom condo with 1488 square feet, on the 10th floor, northwest facing with expansive bay, city, and airport views. After reviewing market activity for its competition and comparables to assist our clients with an asking price, I believe this condo is the best value for your dollar in the price range of $650,000 and under.
Best Value Overall
I base my opinion on sales activity over six months, including current, active listings, and evaluating the competition in relation to construction, interior upgrades and finishes, square footage, location, amenities, and how well it shows.
Inside this elegant and lovingly cared-for home you’ll find tasteful upgrades like high-end ceiling fans in every room, pristine hardwood floors, freshly painted hallways, and organizational systems in the kitchen and closets. Its floor plan is spacious with an open living area incorporating the kitchen, breakfast nook, living room and balcony to blue water and beyond.
Electra was built by Bosa Development in 2007, and at 43 stories high is the tallest residential building in downtown, San Diego. Incorporated into the lower exterior of the building is the neoclassical, Art Deco façade of the old San Diego Gas & Electric building, which is now a registered historic landmark. Meticulously restored and renovated, the building was the site of San Diego’s main power plant from 1911 to the mid-1950s.
Historic and Charming
The original historic portion of the building houses the Electra’s main lobby, known as the “Conservatory”. Breathtakingly beautiful with a glass dome ceiling, it is used as a community room for residents to enjoy a solitary moment, entertain, or arrange an elegant party or reception. It offers a full kitchen, grand piano, sofas, lounge chairs, private reading rooms, tall potted plants, and flowers to create a warm and inviting feel.
Electra is located in Columbia District, an easy walk to the harbor, restaurants, cafes, shopping, Horton Plaza, Gaslamp, and Seaport Village. Residents enjoy a multitude of amenities including colorfully landscaped gardens, outdoor fireplace and BBQs, large pool that captures tons of afternoon sunlight, hot tub, steam room, sauna, fitness center, 24 hour security, and friendly concierge staff.
