I’ve gone apple picking in district 7 (1968 Greenwhich) and would like all of you interested parties to know that you’re ALL wrong on your guesses. I’ve found this sites information very useful and many of you are right on with the correction that is happening.
This house is awesome. It’s detached on the second floor and on the right side. It feels like a single family home. It has 11 foot high ceilings and celestial windows in every room…
As for the price, well….I think you’ll see that I’m right on where the ‘correction’ is and that I’m paying what the place is worth. it’s been renovated tastefully and is well maintained and turnkey. Frankly, I’m very excited.
The pro’s in this house vastly out weigh the cons. The pictures tell you the pros…my only cons are there is no bathroom in the master upstairs. I don’t care as a single guy, but for resale in the future it may turn some off. The other, is the size of the living room.
If I wanted, I could add a bathroom in the Master (on the deck off the master)…and in the living room, knock out that back wall of glass and push it back 10 feet (where the current deck is) and build a new deck on top of that section for the master, and put the old deck back off the living room….I’d loose about 10 – 15 feet of the back yard, but there is plenty to spare. There is also permits already to put on a roof deck on top of the master…I could have stairs off the master deck going up to the roof….I haven’t seen it up there yet, but I’m assuming I could get some bay and bridge views….of course, all of this is just in my mind right now, but very possible. I think this stuff could be done for less than $200k…and I still wont be at the price they paid in ’05.
I’ll be curious to hear any comments about my purchase next week. This will be done by Friday. Until then….keep up the good work…. How do you like them apples?
Tasty, keep us posted, and let’s not forget those invitations to the housewarming. We’ll buy you a drink down at Balboa after. Or better yet, The Brazen Head.
