But What About The Television?

But What About The Television?

You may covet one of those remote controlled hidden televisions, but what you really need is a “cleverly disquised remote controlled hidden bed.” ∙ Listing: 1255 California #102 – $487,000 Read More »

Yet Another Reason To Plug In To SocketSite

Yet Another Reason To Plug In To SocketSite

Almost six weeks since we brought the “Greenest Home In San Francisco” to your attention, the Chronicle publishes a great overview of the house (520 Clipper). If you were plugged in to SocketSite, you actually had a chance to tour (or purchase) the pad. If not, you’ll just have... Read More »

Three In 301 Bryant

Three In 301 Bryant

301 Bryant is a beautiful building. Designed by Tanner Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects (now in the portfolios of both TANNERHECHT Architecture and LEDDY MAYTUM STACY Architects) and developed by ECB, the 11-story structure includes 39 residential units and was built on a small 8,000 square foot site. In fact,... Read More »

Apartment Therapy San Francisco Goes Live

Apartment Therapy San Francisco Goes Live

New York based Apartment Therapy has officially flipped the switch on the San Francisco edition. And despite the fact we don’t get a mention on the site (perhaps it was that “Golden Gate City” dig), we’re still fans (and you should be too). We remain hopeful that one of... Read More »

New York In Nob Hill

New York In Nob Hill

As you know, it’s not often that we agree with listing hyperbole. And although we’ve only seen pictures (so far), we just might have to agree with the “One of a Kind Loft in Nob Hill!” claim for 1022 Powell St. #3. Then again, we’re suckers for vines, brick,... Read More »

An Exhibitionist At Heart (And Rightfully So)

Big windows, ocean views, an open floor plan, Wolf stove, Sub-Zero fridge, radiant heat, and decks…yep, we’re definitely digging the “to the studs remodel” of 2127 29th Ave (but not the parquet floors in the living/dining area). Want to see it? You’re in luck. A “Preview Open” on the... Read More »

Say Hello To Your New SF Skyline

Say Hello To Your New SF Skyline

Some weekend research led us to the SkyscraperPage Forum, and a pretty incredible post by Forum member “FourOneFive” way back in 2003. Titled, “SAN FRANCISCO Rundown: Recently Completed, Under Construction, Approved, and Proposed” it’s just that, damn comprehensive, and with rendering porn galore. Today, we tip our hat to...

New Developments: 340 – 350 Fremont

New Developments: 340 – 350 Fremont

Damion Matthews passes along renderings of the proposed and, as far as we know, yet to be named 40-story development for 340 – 350 Fremont Street. Conflicting reports on the proposed number of condos (we’ve seen mention of both 380 and 400 units), but definitely designed by Heller-Manus (other... Read More »

Now That’s How To Flip Renovate!

Now That’s How To Flip Renovate!

Purchase a Presidio Heights Beaux Arts mansion (3701 Washington) in need of renovation for $8 million; spend a “couple of million” updating the plumbing, roof, and parking; entice 25 top-tier decorators to ‘volunteer’ their time; and voila! We give you the 29th annual San Francisco Decorator Showcase property. (And... Read More »

Speaking Of Bachelor Pads…

Speaking Of Bachelor Pads…

We’d like to believe that the New York Times drew their inspiration for a piece on bachelor pads from our post on 2002 California (now in contract). “A bachelor pad is a cultural icon. It has been designed by the architect Frank Gehry for the pages of Playboy and... Read More »
