Hidden behind a relatively modest but sleek façade on “a coveted block of prestigious Laidley Street,” which offers panoramic downtown views, the now four-bedroom home at 131 Laidley was redeveloped in 2014 and then sold for $3.0 million in August of 2017.
Measuring a little over 3,000 square feet, 131 Laidley was redesigned with a requisite open floor plan, “built for entertaining” and to showcase the aforementioned view, with a steel-framed floor-to-ceiling “view threshold” and deck.
Stepping down the hillside, the home’s lower levels offer views as well, along with access to a large back yard, sunken media room and a “collector-scale” room for wine.
And having hit the market listed for $4.295 million this past April, 131 Laidley was relisted for $3.95 million last month, a sale at which would represent total appreciation of 32 percent since the third quarter of 2017 for the above-average home while the frequently misreported index for “San Francisco” house values is up 54 percent over the same period of time but dropping.
If you think you know the market for prestigious view homes in San Francisco, now’s the time to tell.
