340 Chestnut Main Floor

Having been listed for $1.995 million, the sale of the rather distinctive Telegraph Hill home at 340 Chestnut Street, which was designed and owned by the late architect, Herbert Kosovitz, has closed escrow with a reported contract price of $2.5 million.

Finished from the floor to 18-foot ceiling in all-natural wood, with a wall of north facing windows framing the bay and skylights illuminate the upper level and main floor below, the home currently measures 1,150 square feet, not including the garage or lowest level which isn’t as distinctive as above.

No official word on the buyer’s plans for the home.

    Dollars to donuts they gut it and expand up and out, doubling or tripling the floor space.

      That’s likely what will happen. I would be surprised, nay shocked, to see the interior stay. Pity.

        Why pity? That wood is in horrible shape.

          It’s slightly faded from exposure to the sun. It can be refinished. Is it rotting? Is it falling off the walls? If no, then it can be saved. Then again, the new owner is free to do with it as they see fit.

            To the new owner of house: Congratulations on the purchase. Listen not to the naysayers. Your wood has mere tan lines. If your significant other has tan lines, would you throw him/her away?

    That ceiling is positively mauve-lous.
