Purchased for $1,575,000 in early 2011, the four-level home at 101 27th Avenue which sits just outside the gates of Sea Cliff has been redesigned, renovated and modernized.


The interior now features an open main floor with wide-plank Teak flooring and a center island kitchen with some rather nice features, finishes and high-end appliances.


The family room and full bath on the top floor feature wood-paneled ceiling and floor-to-ceiling windows and opens to a deck with some rather Golden views:


The contemporary three-bedroom home is now back on the market and listed for $3,998,000.

∙ Listing: 101 27th Avenue (3/3.5) – $3,998,000 []

    Bold design choices, great location, good luck to the developers. Mainland China target market? Those Russian guys from Lake Street again?

    Now this is nicely done! The teak ceiling on the top floor is a little much for my taste, but still very nice overall.
    Kudos to the architect / designer!

    That top floor is pretty fantastic, with the flow out to the deck and the warm wood on the ceiling. A lot of built-ins — both furniture and (the very needed) privacy blinds. Oh, and there is that little old view.
    My only design nits are the odd placed fireplace on the ground floor, what appears to be a too shallow overhang on the island and a prep sink that should be at the other end (by the fridge). And that is a pretty remote third BR but the rear patio is quite nice (for your au pair, I guess).

    A forgot to add to my post above — a great job overall, inside and out.

    whats with this new crappy deck glass everyone seems to be using….I’m sure it has to do with the stupid a** pigeon planning rule, but at least use a smooth film or frosted glass .

    does anyone see what the square footage is?

    Wait, the door to the master bedroom opens OUT? Poor planning there.

    Delisted, 2/26/14. Offers? I wonder. Curious why this never sold. The exterior looks like a machine for living more than a traditional house, but I thought that was the point for most people.
    I think it will be back on soon. Still seems like a nice place with killer views.

    “a machine for living”
    You’re on a roll soccermom. Keep ’em coming!

    I like to think of my socketsite comment game as 50% Corbusier and 50% Courvoisier.

    A two bedroom house, plus a nice pentroom with view, and another bedroom behind the garage, all fixed up, on a small lot in the Richmond District, near a fancy neighborhood.
    And it did not sell for $4m.
    Perhaps the market is starting to speak back.

    420 El Camino, across the street from this house, just sold for $6.5mm from a $5.1mm list price.

    I really thought 420 would go for more… Ugh.. want.

    The market is fairly insane right now and this is a great outcome. Buyer got a great home and seller got a good price. I do wonder if it could have gone higher. The Jack Dorsey home is starting to look like a great deal.
    Back to 101 27th, I guess there are a few other jilted buyers in the market right now looking for homes. Maybe one of them will snatch it up.

    Relisted @ 3.75mm and pending.

  17. Posted by soccermom

    Sold, $3.925mm.

    Around the corner, up the block 190 25th trades at $3.3mm, 10%+ over ask.
