    OK, what is the joke here? This place will be gone before the broker tour.

    This “village” of six houses has always had problems with lack of light and a cramped feel, but this house seems to be the best of them. Some notable people have bought here because it is charming. There are big apartments on all three sides of the village. Very SF, good value.

    Ok, at least now I’m feeling good about this place when the realtor finally talks about the seismic upgrade.
    Good way to spend $$ before any high end kitchens.
    IMO

    I’d love to move my mom into a stairless-flat version of this.

    Adorable forever home material. I can picture baking cookies for my hypothetical future grandchildren in that kitchen.

    Well hidden, indeed. I’ve lived in the building next door for 25 years and can see most of the six-unit complex from my unit or the street but I’ve never seen this unit before, didn’t know it existed. Looks like it gets more sunlight and is more spacious than the other five, which are dark and cramped. Nice neighborhood, too. Only $2M? Hmmm.

    I live 2.5 blocks away and drive by this all the time, I love the red building in front but I had no idea there were a bunch back in there. Love this place!

    beautiful house. timeless reno. and $300-500k cheaper then lesser homes i’ve seen elsewhere in the city. i find the master floorplan a little inefficient but suspect i’m in the minority.
    one question: why is this not a four bedroom home? the “media room” has 1/2 bath, closets, and windows and there’s a second larger entertainment space on the ground floor and a “den” off the master floor.
    does bedroom count not matter at this price point?

    I don’t understand the price. Is this intended to start a bidding war?
    It’s a fabulous and unique house. I looked at the adjacent brick house with the turret years ago. The whole complex is utterly charming. And the restoration was nicely done. If I was looking, I’d be there tomorrow with a check in hand.

    Lovely, I also think this will be bid up.

    Great for $2m you can live in industrial Manchester circa 1850 with 5 neighbors looking into your yard. Are there HOA fees on top? Of course, if you don’t like the sun this is perfect.

    The only real drawback that I can tell is that it abuts right up to the condo bldg next door. Vsible from SSs pic, not the listing pics carefuly masked. This the sort of thing you find nested up in telegraph hill. It’s in pacific heights. Not the greatest part of d7 but it’s secluded enough. Charming is an understatement. Hope to go see it before it sells.

    Does this place have parking?
    How much are the HOA dues?

  14. Posted by Mark F.

    One car parking. HOA dues not mentioned.

    A little late on the update but congrat’s to the buyers and sellers who did a great job here. I never got to see this place. One of my new favorites.
