32 Carson: Glass Walkway
A listing for 32 Carson has returned to the MLS having shed a little winter weight ($15,000 on top of the previous $50,000 reduction) and a few months on the market.
Considering the views, location, and income unit generating $1,800 a month, we’re guessing the renovation (which some will love and some will hate) and “easy street parking” (a.k.a. no garage) might be two of the property specfic things keeping buyers at bay.
To quote the quote over the stove, “If life gives you limes, make margaritas.” (And then don’t forget to invite us over.)
∙ Listing: 32 Carson (2/2) – $1,3250,000 [MLS]

    1.3 Mil and no parking ?!?!? Come on there is just no way I am spending that much money and not getting a parking space, it is an absolute freaking deal breaker.

    I love this site.

    Looks much better in photos than in person.

    what’s with all the ladders? Am I buying a home or a jungle gym?

    What’s the deal with the floors? If you are wearing a skirt, what happens?

    “If you are wearing a skirt, what happens?”
    Is this a rhetorical question? The biological and social consequences of see through floors seems pretty obvious to me.

    @gfw – Your white-and-orange spandex unitard (stored vacuum sealed in entryway) will keep this from being a problem.

    I’m guessing they were designed with the Brittany Spears/Lindsay Lohan wannabe’s in mind…

    Hmmm…
    Option A: Spend $1.3 million for a fake loft crammed into a 100-year old SFR with no parking.
    Option B: Spend 40% less for a real loft in SOMA or the Central Waterfront, built a few years ago, with parking.

    This house reminds me of something that Quagmire from The Family Guy (I KNOW I’m not the only one that watches that) would live in.

    Designed by men, for men. My guess, anyway.
    Tongue-in-cheek: Is it against anti-discrimination laws to design a house such that one sex, minority group, or sexual orientation would not buy the house?

    Are there any “real” stairs? I cannot see anything but twiggy ladders in the photos.

    I don’t hate the remodel, i don’t love it. But a garage or hearty perennial parking pad would’ve been a nice touch.
    How in the hell do you keep a glass walkway clean?
    Why not spice things up? Why not put in a few firepoles instead of all ladders? I mean, if you’re gonna go there…

  14. I’ve been to parties in this amazing home and can attest it’s truly a one-of-a-kind space. The multi-year renovation appears to be of the highest calibre, the kitchen & baths are magazine-quality and the views amazing. Carson Heights is indeed a great location. And with $1,800/mo income I’d rent parking!

    Even if you were a buyer who was willing to overlook the ladders, glass walkway, absence of parking and landlord status, you would then have to wonder if there was anybody else but you in SF that would be equally willing (i.e. another buyer). I have to believe that in this price range, the lack of parking alone eliminates a huge percentage of the small pool of potential buyers.

    Used to live near that street: parking’s not an issue. Everyone knows everyone (and everyone’s car)….park in a neighbor’s driveway and they’ll knock on you door when they need you to move it. Very chummy block.
