A Giant Elk and Entrepreneur Exit Noe Valley for Cow HollowOctober 26, 2015
As we first reported when the converted Noe Valley Firehouse at 3816 22nd Street sold for $5.55 million in 2013, the buyer was technically the “Megaloceros, LLC,” behind which a tech entrepreneur was hidden.
Two weeks ago, Megaloceros purchased the modern Cow Hollow home at 1864 Greenwich Street for $6.995 million ($500K under original list).
And as a plugged-in tipster notes, that’s why the modern Noe Valley Firehouse No. 44 on 22nd Street has just returned to the market seeking $6.898 million and touting a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” (for the third time in five years).

If you only live 1.6 years, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Grab it toddler!
I took a look in 08 or 09 and would describe it as a bachelor’s pad in a family neighborhood.
am i the only one with a fireman fantasy?
There’s something sad about the dramatic and tall entrance being replaced by a generic garage door.
I believe the ugly new garage door is just behind the old fire station doors that are still there (see other pics from listing)
Moving up from one white shoebox to another, in a better neighborhood.
The modern style might be quite similar, but the firehouse seems to offer a heck of a lot more space and more interesting spaces at that. Odd switch, unless it’s all about location, location, location. And bridge views.
i fail to understand how cow hollow is a better neighborhood than noe.
I think the question needs to be turned back to yourself: what are the attributes in Noe that you find to be better than Cow Hollow?
I like it.
So who’s the entrepreneur?
This used to be the home of artist Mark Adams and his wife Beth Van Hoesen. It was their art studio and home for fifty years. Adams designed the stained glass windows for Temple Emanu-El. He was best known for his watercolors. They were poor and used redwoods planks for paneling in the home (I’m sure that beautiful redwood is long-gone).
They used to have a weekly drawing session in the beautiful home to which Noe Valley artists were invited.
Here’s an obituary of Mark.

UPDATE: The listing for 3816 22nd Street has been withdrawn from the MLS without a reported sale.
And now it’s up on Airbnb. This is wrong, no? This is not the owners primary residence anymore. Either sell this place, or rent it out full time. This isn’t a vacation home or bed n breakfast.
UPDATE: Million Dollar Price Cut for This Noe Valley Landmark
