That’s a really attractive remodel, but I’m a little confused as to where the TV goes.
Oh wait “fully retractable projection screen” in the living room. Where did they put that I wonder? Does anyone out there have one of these? Seems like it would be a pain to retract a screen every time you want to watch a little TV.
Let’s see: I see an eating bar, breakfast room, AND formal dining room on the main floor. And there’s a breakfast room in downstairs suite. No shortage of eateries in this house.
Here’s a big, nice place in Pac Heights that just sold in this general price range — 10% under the 2001 (and 2004) price:
Also, fwiw, I like this nearby place better (also recently reduced):
High-end certainly seems to show continuing weakening.
I like how the left side of the pointed roof literally pokes into the apartment building next door, as if someone mis-measured.
The top photo looks like the apartment building “bumped” the house in the last earthquake and tipped the roof to the left.
Wow, that is one of the most awkward abutments I’ve ever seen. I’m guessing that this house came first. I can imagine the consternation created when the owner of the adjacent lot decided to build the tree storied apartment building and place a wall right in front of the window. That must have been a fun neighborly moment.
But the kitchen has a pot filler (one with two joints and two more leakage sites). Sold !
2922 sold for $2.6M so I’d say that is in a different league. But, why would you buy this home at any price? It’s just a terrible terrible lot.
“High-end certainly seems to show continuing weakening”
so how do you explain the recent sale of the pine street freeway house for $2.1million?
This place is back.
And the crop job on the first photo of this “detached” home is “stunning.”
hoo boy, buyers guided by that cropped first photo are in for a disappointment once they show up at the property in-person.
Generally cropping is considered to be one of the more ethical and least deceptive adjustments in the photographer’s kit of tricks. But this photo takes it to the limit.
That is a crop of ship. 🙂
I passed by yesterday and the crop job looks really nasty as if someone had axed through the corner in a hurry.
