If Only We Could Get This One “Un-Remodeled” (21 Parsons)

If Only We Could Get This One “Un-Remodeled” (21 Parsons)

So while it was the $299,000 garden studio that first caught (and then lost) our attention, it was the juxtaposition between the original woodwork (which we love) and the very un-original kitchen (no comment) up that landed 21 Parsons on the site. There’s nothing quite like having to budget... Read More »

Mid-Century Modern (That’s Been Remodeled): 1401 Eucalyptus Drive

Mid-Century Modern (That’s Been Remodeled): 1401 Eucalyptus Drive

“Mid-century modernism” really isn’t our thing, and some are sure to bemoan the loss of the original detailing, but we’re still digging the stone work and drooling over all the storage at 1401 Eucalyptus Drive. ∙ Listing: 1401 Eucalyptus Drive (3/2) – $1,049,000 Read More »

San Francisco Living: Home Tours (A Chance To Comment In General)

San Francisco Living: Home Tours (A Chance To Comment In General)

If you participated in the San Francisco Living: Home Tours this weekend and care to share your thoughts about any of the homes other than 55 Sheridan or 306 Mullen (such as 431 Tehama above which a plugged-in reader first called to our attention six months ago), this is... Read More »

Classic, Classic, And Yet Contemporary Up At 23 Belmont

Classic, Classic, And Yet Contemporary Up At 23 Belmont

It’s a classic exterior, in a classic little San Francisco enclave, with a completely contemporary interior and finishes. Think integrated audio, video, lighting and heating throughout; a kitchen outfitted with a high output Gaggenau gas cook top (as well as two Diva induction burners); and beautifully clean baths. And... Read More »

The SocketSite Scoop On 67-69 Belcher (As Promised)

The SocketSite Scoop On 67-69 Belcher (As Promised)

Born a furniture warehouse, 67-69 Belcher was destined to be demolished and redeveloped (into condos) in the early 1980’s. Instead, artist Spaulding Taylor and partner acquired the Duboce Triangle property converting half into a one of kind residence designed by architect Ira Kurlander and Johnathan Straley (67 Belcher), and...

Word Up! (A Reader Recommends 7 Cameo Way)

Word Up! (A Reader Recommends 7 Cameo Way)

From a reader: “A wonderful mid-century modern by an unknown architect, in perfect architect-restored condition.” (From us: remodeled in 2002 with redwood bookshelves, black walnut floors, Italian kitchen cabinets, and modern appliances.) UPDATE (9/7): The sale of 7 Cameo Way closed escrow on 8/22/07 for $1,550,000 (3.7% over asking). Read More »

Two TICs And A Thought From A Tipster (222-224 Funston)

Two TICs And A Thought From A Tipster (222-224 Funston)

A tipster wonders about value (“I guess there is no harm in asking for over million for each of these nicely renovated flats…hether the sellers will actually get over $2.5 million for what is essentially a two flat Edwardian building is another matter.”). We just liked looking at... Read More »

You Had Us At Heated Granite Floors (And We’re Not Granite People)

You Had Us At Heated Granite Floors (And We’re Not Granite People)

The little (and not so little) things that caught our eye at 801 Teresita: heated granite floors, a Duravit sink, Axor fixtures and skylight in the bathroom; Scavolini, Sub-Zero, DCS and (two more) skylights in the kitchen; a landscaped backyard (which the master bedroom overlooks); and a corner lot....

Not Overheard Everyday: Don’t Hit Your Head On The Fireplace

Not Overheard Everyday: Don’t Hit Your Head On The Fireplace

It’s the central staircase and fireplace designs that caught our attention. And perhaps it’s also interesting to note that it last changed hands on 2/24/2006 (for what we’re assuming was a pre-remodel price of $1,300,000). ∙ Listing: 1420 Douglass (3/2) – $1,695,000 Read More »

A “Completely Unique Creative Remodel” On Jackson Street

A “Completely Unique Creative Remodel” On Jackson Street

It’s being billed as a “ompletely unique creative remodel…resulting in a modern floor plan that’s open, flexible, yet warm & inviting.” And while we’re definitely conceding the first part, and honestly admire the vision, the kitchen leaves us scratching (and perhaps sympathetically rubbing) our heads. ∙ Listing: 3042 Jackson...
