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 »

Yerba Buena Lofts Redux

Yerba Buena Lofts Redux

Last August we featured three units in the Yerba Buena Lofts (855 Folsom). Today, Curbed offer a great overview of the building, its architect, and three new listings. A couple of observations: Michael Broerman owns the listings in that building; and is it just us, or do the average... Read More »

Soul Searching

About three weeks ago we broke the story about the $65,000,000 mansion hitting the San Francisco market.

Truth In Advertising: 1750 Taylor (Royal Towers)

Truth In Advertising: 1750 Taylor (Royal Towers)

It’s not often that we wholeheartedly agree with an agent’s description of a listing. In the case of 1750 Taylor #1301, we just might… “With over 3,200 square feet of living space, state-of-the-art amenities, walls of steel & glass, and three terraces, this magnificent home offers unequalled sophistication and...

Curbed Shoots…And Scores?

Curbed jumps on the 300 Sea Cliff bandwagon we started about ten months ago…and ends up simply getting emailed the real scoop. Nice. A couple of excerpts: “I lived at 300 Seacliff growing up during the 80’s and 90’s. I probably know more about the house than anyone around.... Read More »

Can’t Sell?  Then Stucco!

Can’t Sell? Then Stucco!

Matt Jalbert of le blog exuberance captures the infamous 300 Sea Cliff Avenue undergoing a “modern” face lift. In Matt’s own words, “I guess no millionaires appreciate that old-school hollow red brick façade. And rather than lower the price, it appears that the sellers decided to update the property...

1200 Indiana: Flip Or Folly?

1200 Indiana: Flip Or Folly?

If we remember correctly, the ultra modern (and apparently “URBAN FABULOUS”) live/work space at 1200 Indiana last changed hands was last on the market about nine months ago after it was (listed at $1,998,000 with Herth). Well, it’s back on the market with a new price ($2,188,000) and a... Read More »
