2505 Divisadero Entry

Plugged-in people knew it was coming and that the stagers were in the house. Now as another reader notes, with 73 listing photos, welcome to the most exhaustive look inside Kirk Hammett’s old home (2505 Divisadero).  And yes, Hammett’s recording studio appears to have been re-dubbed a “family room.”

∙ Listing: 2505 Divisdero (8/8.5) – $8,995,000 [Nina Hatvany]

    Yay, 73 pictures and floor plans too. But I feel sorry for the stagers. A place like this can make any staging look cheap and cheesy. It certainly does in this instance. I think it might have presented better empty.

    It looks like they ran out of money for staging halfway through the house.

    This place will sell. Maybe not at asking, but it seems like they are priced to move. The lack of complete staging demonstrates a budget mentality. Probably only have it contracted for 30 days before they gut it so I suspect the first competitive offer will be looked at very seriously.

    who is hammett? I really dislike how socketsite often posts the names of person x,y,or z and expects everyone to know who the heck they’re talking about. would it be so hard to say “hammett, who did xyz” i.e. state their distinction?

    Editor: I received a security warning when I clicked on “kthnxybe” – the signature in the above comment. Could have been an overprotective screening by my computer, but I have never received such a warning before.
    Any way you can figure out if this is someone phishing (or worse) and remove it if it is not legit?

    Looked at this the last time it was on the market. Needs so much work. However, given the price, am surprised there’s no vanity website, perhaps if the pictures were larger, you might see all the work needed. This place needs a haircut and a major reno and then you are still on a very busy street.

    The kthnxbye link is not only legit, it is also awesome. I’m filing that one away for future use.

    staging opinions (and pricing for that matter), I think this house is pretty sweet. as a guy i greatly appreciate that sweet looking pool table and bar area. i could hang out in there for days.

    Sorry… I still liked it the way it was. I know the paint is pretty new…. but they took out some of the character and made it a fixer-upper. At least the new owners (should someone buy it) will have lots of room for improvement.
    I’m sorry to see this house end up in this state.

    Yeah, I sort of liked it with the dark-and-weird interior, too.
    And the two-headed sheep in the living room.
    What?

    Are we all looking at the same pic’s… (two headed sheep? WTF? Where?) And after 3 years on the market I can understand not wanting to pay for all three floors to be staged. (Metallica hasn’t had a Platinum record for awhile. There are not alot of companies that can stage at this end of the market…. I don’t play with the “Big Boys” but I really like what Arthur has done; clean, simple, elegant for a broad range of tastes… that’s what staging IS!!!
