100 Palo Alto 2015

As we wrote about the Clarendon Heights home at 100 Palo Alto Avenue two months ago:

Built for former San Francisco Mayor Elmer E. Robinson in 1953, the 4,800-square-foot Mid-Century home with “breathtaking views” at 100 Palo Alto Avenue was purchased for $5.625 million in April of 2008, resold for $4.6 million in early 2013, and then traded hands that July for $4.725 million.

Listed for $5.2 million nearly two months ago, the Clarendon Heights home, which sits on the highest residential street in San Francisco, remains on the market and available with a price that’s only 10 percent more than in 2013, and 8 percent less than in 2008 on an apples-to-apples, versus median price, basis.

This morning, the listing for 100 Palo Alto Avenue was withdrawn from the MLS without a reported sale.

    Great views, but otherwise the location is horrible. It’s like Siberia up there most of the time.

    If I had the money I might buy it. But alas…

    If you zoom all the way in you can see there is an empty lot on the view side of the house..wonder if that is buildable could destroy the view which clearly is what they are selling and pulling the price down.

    Well it is a bit of a pain to bike all the way up there.

    Take Clarendon to Dellbrook or path between Twin Peaks and Marview, as Mountain Spring and Glenbrook are cookers on a bike. Buy it for the butterflies and hummingbirds, not for the wind speeds which will blow your scarf down to Clayton.
