When I arrived at the top of the stairs, I instantly knew this vintage condominium was a very special home. I couldn't stop thinking about the countless ways to make the most of its flexible floor plan -- featuring two handsome bedrooms that stretch far beyond the open parlor adorned with a decorative fireplace and coved ceilings. Abundant natural light and plenty of wall space, for even the most expressive art, create a welcoming canvas that draws you close and invites you to linger. So when I found myself standing in the middle of the remodeled kitchen, I could only imagine the joy of cooking for hours on end using the dizzying array of top-of-the-line appliances including Viking, Miele and Sub-Zero. Whether sipping a cup of coffee or indulging in a glass of wine, the exclusive-use deck high above the valley floor is the perfect spot to begin, and end, every day for many years to come at 1625 Dolores Street.
