Million Dollar Cut for Modern Mission Dolores Statement HomeSeptember 23, 2016
Designed by Stanley Saitowitz, listed for $7.998 million in April, and withdrawn from the MLS without a reported sale in July, the modern 4,665-square-foot Mission Dolores home at 50 Oakwood Street has just returned to the market listed for a million less ($6.995 million).
Marketed as an “oasis in the city” and “so much more than a house,” the four-level home features floor-to-ceiling walls of glass; a 550-square-foot living room with a 16-foot-long gas fireplace; a 15-foot-long island and custom hidden-wall cabinetry in the kitchen; “up to five bedrooms” and four and a half baths; and multiple terraces overlooking the Mission and hardscaped rear yard.

Incredible. But not the ideal level of privacy for living in a city. On a big treed lot perhaps.
The house at 54 Oakwood gets an up close view of everything going on in the house. Saitowitz makes beautiful homes, but never seems to consider what life is like for their inhabitants.
Yea, truly a house of its time – in 10 years this will look even more ridiculous than it does now.
FLW was an amazing architect, but his furniture was beyond uncomfortable. Sometimes design trumps practicality.
Nice place, but I’d like more greenery in the rear yard, and some kind of greenery out front..
the backyard is truly an abomination. All formality, no function. And because of the bizarre circulation, no way of really introducing greenery without blasting out that mass of concrete.
It does have blinds. It’s quite a house, actually. But I can understand the price cut.
radical fishbowl living for uber wealthy nudist
Looking at the house in Google Streetview, the house bears the addresses of 50 and 52 Oakwood. Does anyone know what 52 Oakwood is? Is it a separate apartment in the building? A house on a separate lot out back?
Zoned RH-2, so guessing that that lower level could be used as a warranted studio apartment or permitted STR.
Who needs privacy anyways?
SF landlords need privacy. Shees.
stunning, but I can’t disagree with the privacy concerns.
does anyone know who did the staging?
I live in a modern glass house like this. But in the country with complete privacy. In the city, it would drive me crazy. As a friend said, “People who live in glass houses…… shouldn’t.”
Beautiful house. I’d be afraid some loon would throw a brick through the windows.
If you actually visit it and look at the exterior, you’ll see that it’s not particularly well detailed/finished. $7M should at least get you excellent execution when it comes to the detailing/craftsmanship.
Love Saitowitz. I’m sure it comes with heavy blinds and wonder if the windows are more tinted in actuality than they appear in the photos.
Nice hotel, especially the lobby. Anyone know how many rooms it has and how much they go for a night?
Not sure if it’s a fishbowl or a toilet bowl. Completely sterile. Perfect for some soulless rich nerd.
Martin Skirelli maybe?
Not the first de-list and price cut on this place. It was first listed at NINE million, before being withdrawn and then relisted soon after; they’re down almost 25 percent from the original ask. I own a place across the street, and I can confirm that the level of gold-fish-bowlery is almost ridiculous. The glass walls don’t really make sense in the context of a narrow, tight, urban street. Maybe on top of a hill somewhere, but on Oakwood, you’re basically going to live your entirely in front of my tenants in this house.
The house looks “nice”, but it strikes me as cold, corporate, and soulless.
“Soulless” seems to be a popular accusation by those who also use rich and corporate as slurs. You don’t have to be much of a psychologist to understand this site, do you?
Chill out. Is everything a political fight for you? It must be exhausting for you to just get through the day. I like color and warmth in my home environment, and I don’t want my living room to feel like the lobby of a large soulless corporation. There is zero political meaning to that, just my personal taste.
