One of the three oldest houses on Russian Hill, 930 Chestnut Street, had its first open house on Sunday, “by appointment only”. A 3,000 square feet fixer with resplendent original ornate ceilings, fireplaces and Tommy Church garden. Not much has been done since the new kitchen was chronicled as the height of luxury in Homes & Gardens circa 1969.
Shame that the neighbor is a six-story, box-like apartment building 100 years newer than this 1861 jewel. And . . . there is no garage, which given the Planning Commission’s recent ruling, makes the $1,125 per square foot price tag seem steep. Offers by 3/19 at noon.
Editor’s Note: This open house report brought to you by Seb, a plugged-in reader just like you. Okay, considering the price point ($3.3 million) perhaps not exactly like you, but a plugged-in reader nonetheless.
