As we detailed in the third quarter of last year:

Purchased by an art collector for $1.55 million in August of 2003, the 3,070-square foot Russian Hill cooperative unit #6 at 947 Green Street was gutted and completely transformed into a stunning “European-Deco inspired masterpiece” with views by LeavittWeaver.

Featuring polished teak casework, custom furnishings, and configured as a one-bedroom with an adjoining study (which would be repurposed as a second bedroom), the unit hit the market priced at $7.495 million, or roughly $2,441 per square foot, in the first quarter of [2018].

And today [September 6, 2018], 947 Green Street #6 was just re-listed anew with an official “1” day on the market and a $5.995 million price tag, a sale at which would be considered to be “at asking” according to all industry stats and reports.

Delisted from the MLS this past November, 947 Green Street #6 has just be re-re-listed anew with an official “1” day on the market and a $4.995 million price tag, a sale at which would be considered to be “at asking” according to all industry stats and reports.

    There’s so much wood work, it feels more like the interior of a yacht.

      I would like that much wood, but the juxtaposition of fine carpentry with what looks like an attempt at rustic plank flooring is jarring. I realize the plank portion is probably of equally fine craftsmanship and composed of high-end species, but it still doesn’t appeal (at least to me).

    I like it , but obviously not to everybody’s taste.

      It is well done, but the aesthetic feels like a fancy restaurant that hasn’t updated their decor since the 80s.

    Not my taste but it does appear to be finely done. I’m curious to know what they spent on that renovation.

    That $2.5 million will come in handy unless the new owners are stuck in a Y2K time warp and/or are fans of Orthopedic Deco.

    You can tell they didn’t spare any expenses when doing the renovation. Unfortunately like fashion, interior styles do change. Some of the finishes still work for today’s interior but quite a few is dating the unit. Unless buyer is into this NYC Four Seasons look, sadly sellers won’t be able to recoup their investment… although they did enjoy this gorgeous interior for a good 15-16 years.

    Is it a wide angle lense or does this place have lots of curved finishes?

      There are a lot of curved walls in this unit. That and the heavy use of wood paneling gives this unit the yacht look.

    A major part of the apartment’s design is done through the furnishings and standing lights, which will be removed after the sale. Contemporary furniture, some painting, and perhaps a few strategic rugs would give the apartment an updated look. I do not think it needs any major renovations, and if you are the type of purchaser who wants a stripped-down white box, there are numerous options for that already available on the San Francisco market.

      Once you buy a boat, you can paint it any color you want, but it’s bad luck to change the name.
