Cool condos by the ballpark

Price per square foot: $374
Located about a mile from Petco Park, home to the San Diego Padres, this two-bedroom, two-bath condo is the second-most expensive in our lineup. This condo boasts floor-to-ceiling windows, and there's a fireplace in the living area. In the kitchen, you'll find granite counter tops and standard appliances. The second bedroom has a built-in desk and cabinets. This home comes with a number of building amenities, including a concierge, a pool, a spa, a fitness center, a conference room and a resident lounge. But you can expect to pay a hefty $688 per month in association fees for those luxuries — the most costly assessment on our list. Still, it's San Diego, the weather's always fine for baseball — and for this 22-minute walk to the park.
