Adventures in Mission Bay
When it comes to amenities, 235 and 255 Berry Street condos do not disappoint but for more reasons than they’ll share with you on the tour. There are the obvious amenities, the ones that are physically in the building, and there are the subtle but grand amenities, the ones that are just outside your door.
Let’s address the obvious before moving on to the adventures that await. This isn’t your typical, we’ll call it “historic,” San Francisco apartment that has been around for decades and accumulated numerous quirks along the way. “Signature Properties [built] these two mid-rise condos on Berry Street: 255 Berry Street was completed in 2004 and 235 Berry Street in 2007. Both buildings… consist mainly of two-bedroom units of various sizes and floor plans” Each condo has a “[G]ourmet kitchen including Bosch appliances and granite countertops.” The properties have an elevator, exercise facility, and a pool. “Building amenities include concierge/lobby attendant, building manager, and a nice courtyard.” All of which are great until you hear that they all have in-unit washer and dryer -- a sign of making it in this city. To top it all off, each condo “includes [one] parking spot and access to quarterly guest parking passes.” Talk about wealth!
But the real wealth comes from the opportunity you have to take advantage of the Mission Bay lifestyle, which includes outdoor recreation opportunities on top of the standard big city perks. If you want to know about the functionality of living in MIssion Bay with regards to location, check out our previous article. If you’re ready to move on to the outdoor activities thi area offers you, read on. Whether or not your unit faces south, providing you with “views of the creek and South Mission Bay,” you can take full advantage of their proximity. Check out the houses on the creek that look straight out of a painting. “And the bike path behind them on the water front is so pretty and provides all these picnic tables to sit down at and enjoy the day.” Take a stroll, plan a picnic, walk your dog, or ride your bike along Mission Creek while enjoying both the city skyline and fresh outdoors. On the few days where it gets hot enough to want to jump in the water, check out citykayak.com to book a kayaking trip in McCovey Cove and Mission Creek. Whether a short daytime trip, a ballpark game trip, or a nighttime twilight trip, you’ll remember you’re in the nature-filled city of California and not the concrete jungle of San Francisco.
When you’re ready to be outside but be more socially active than physically active, check out Spark Social. “Th[e] fire pits, adult games like giant Jenga and giant chess, corn hole, a soccer field…. pair this with bomb ass food trucks, swing sets, and cool places to just perch up with a beer and enjoy the day!” There’s another outdoor option to drink, eat, and play mini-golf. You heard that right, “San Francisco’s first outdoor mini-golf course, Stagecoach Greens, is now open at 1379 4th St. in Mission Bay.” You can relax after a round of golf in the “beer garden, filled with benches and tipi cabanas.
Whatever your mood, you have options to enjoy the beautiful outdoor area of Mission Beach or the luxury amenities of 235 and 255 Berry Street when indulging in a day of Netflix.
