Before, After, And A $500K Cut For A ‘Bespoke’ Cow Hollow HomeJune 8, 2015
Listed for $7.495 million in April and in contract for ten days in May, the price for the modern Cow Hollow pad at 1864 Greenwich Street was reduced by $500,000 on Friday and they’re now asking $6.995 million for the “bespoke” five-bedroom home.
Purchased as a “charming” two-bedroom for $1.51 million in 2012, the home was expanded and redeveloped by M-PROJECTS. As the home looked before, with the same perspectives as the after shots above:
And yes, there’s now a requisite fire pit on the roof and a wine cellar down below (along with a garage for four cars).

Nothing like a view of the golden gate, shell and chevron
Installing automated cattle prods and pepper spray emitters on the way up that blazing white stairway to heaven would only slightly increase the assault on one’s senses.
I absolutely love this design and it’s in a great neighborhood. How could someone pay more for an ugly poseur pad in Noe Valley when this is available? Kudos to the architect/designer. What a wonderful vision!
Look the place is lovely and all but $7 Million … W.T.F.?
Yeah for $7M you could have gotten a place a block away from the Whole Foods loading dock in Noe 😉
How much just for those chairs in the living room?
Stunning home and really tasteful staging. Maybe a little too much wood both inside and out for my liking but nothing to complain about here.
Tiny house hiding behind an ugly spray painted black gate to the left, a motel that has become Academy of Art housing to the right, and the melody of Lombard Street traffic to the back. Fatal flaws?
4,500 sq ft is ‘tiny’?
the house to the left is 4,500 sq ft? (that’s what was referred to as “tiny” — not the $7M house for sale)
where did the sq.ft. estimate come from?
This reminds me of a house John Pawson designed in Bel Air.
“Bespoke” (made specifically for the buyer, in every detail) really is truly idiotic marketing-speak here. It is exactly the opposite; it’s a spec house. Not to say it isn’t an enormous improvement over the original, which it obviously is.
I think the original was great, and had a helluva lot more character. Needed updating, but I’d far rather live in it than in this sterile box.
Completely agree with you on “bespoke”, though. Pretty much by definition, something that is “bespoke” to one person will fail to fit the bill for anyone else…
Massive improvement. Huge.
