Inside 990 Green Street #6

Inside 990 Green Street #6

990 Green #6 is a stunning three-level penthouse condo in Russian Hill. It boasts 4 bedrooms, 6.5 baths, and 3+ car parking; panoramic views, a “home theater” with wet bar, and a “large walk-out patio with hot tub.” It’s priced at just under seven million ($6,885,000), and we’re seriously...

Eye-On-Eichlers Home Tour (Marin)

Wondering what all the Eichler fuss is about? Well here’s a chance to see for yourself (and to support the Hospice of Marin while doing so).

Two Hours We’ll Never See Again

Two Hours We’ll Never See Again

Okay, so it’s probably best not to mention just how long it took us to figure out that it’s a seven week (?) calendar sketched out on that damn wall in the listing for 188 South Park #5. (Or that it was only after we figured it out that... Read More »

A Tale Of Two Green Houses

A Tale Of Two Green Houses

One Green house sells within days for nearly two million dollars (520 Clipper). The other Green house languishes on the market, is reduced twice, and is still available for about a million (338 Holladay). The owner/builder of the second house draws the conclusion that people could “care less” about... Read More »

Inside 61 Parnassus

Inside 61 Parnassus

We have to admit, we weren’t all that impressed when we first spied 61 Parnassus on the MLS. And then we received a link to the Resident Photography site for the property which piqued our interest enough to take a tour (of both the website and the physicial property).... Read More »

The Scoop On The Shoreline (41 Federal)

The Scoop On The Shoreline (41 Federal)

A tipster toured the Shoreline last weekend and is kind enough to share his notes: Apparently 5 of the 9 units are sold, leaving a 2-bedroom ($1.3m) and 3 1-bedrooms ($850K-$970K). Scheduled completion is late September. Many of the design decisions were very refreshing given all the large, cookie-cutter... Read More »

The Live/Work Lofts of 355 Bryant

The Live/Work Lofts of 355 Bryant

We really weren’t kidding about our love for 355 Bryant. It’s one of the true loft conversion buildings in San Francisco, and for the most part, it’s beautifully done. Granted, it’s not the right building for everyone, but if you like New York style lofts with open floor plans,... Read More »

Another Modern Exterior, Another peek Inside (2326 Pacific)

Another Modern Exterior, Another peek Inside (2326 Pacific)

Some plagiarism (of ourselves) this morning: “We’ve always been fans of 3032 Divisadero’s 2326 Pacific’s modern exterior and have often wondered what treasures lurked within.” And once again, it looks like we’re in luck (it’s open this Sunday (8/13) from 2:00 to 4:00). ∙ The Magic 8-Ball Says Yes!...

The Mullen Buildings: 52/60 Rausch & 73 Sumner

The Mullen Buildings: 52/60 Rausch & 73 Sumner

The Mullen Buildings Development consists of three buildings: 60 Rausch and 73 Sumner (both built in the 1920’s and converted to lofts in 2002), and 52 Rausch (new construction). We have architect George Hauser to thank for the conversion and design (and we do). The Mullen Buildings were originally... Read More »

The Wood, The Stone, The Windows…Oh My!

The Wood, The Stone, The Windows…Oh My!

Okay, this is another case of only having seen the pictures. But based on what we’ve seen, we’ve got a serious crush on 4381 26th Street. Designed by Mark Brand, the three-level home effortlessly blends wood, stone, and windows to yield a clean, yet warm, modern design. It’s open... Read More »
