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 »

A Week of Atonement

So we mange to wax poetic (“stunning – from the design, to the finishes, to the views”) about the new “Green” house at 520 Clipper. We give accolades to the builder (Lorax Development) and even point out the broker (Brown & Co.). The only person we forget to mention?... Read More »

Party Like It’s 2002 (California)

That’s assuming, of course, that you’re willing to completely gut, remodel, and drop invest another $500k on top of the $1,349,000 asking price.... Read More »

Friday Fun: Name This House

Friday Fun: Name This House

Welcome to the inaugural installment of SocketSite’s Name This House™ (just sounds better than “identify this house”). First up, an ex-bachelor pad with a modern façade that belies quite possibly the best bay views in San Francisco. Unfortunately we’ve only seen pictures of the views, so bonus points to...

Golden Gate City?

Golden Gate City?

Okay, we’re big fans of apartment therapy. And we’re looking forward to their full-blown San Francisco edition. But somebody really needs to tell them to stop referring to San Francisco as “Golden Gate City”. You’re killing us over here people. That being said, and if you have a long... Read More »
