255 New Listings In The Past 3 Days – Time To Go Shopping!

I thought I’d do a quick post directing you all to the easiest place to see the flood of new inventory just hit our market the past two weeks, specifically the past two days, including this $16,000,000 home at 298 Chestnut, and this $9,500,000 Modern Drooler at 16 Spruce.

As of today, there are about 255 new listings hit the market in the past 3 days…as a comparison, August saw 431 listings total for the entire month. Any of you buyers thinking about taking it easy this weekend…think again. Act quickly before you miss out.

BTW, these data tables are so easy and fun to sort, it’s just the thing for all of you real estate porn addicts. If you’re agent isn’t sending them to you, they should. Just sayin’.

Have a great weekend!

That Crooked House On The Corner Of Guerrero And 14th Is For Sale – 203 Guerrero

Modern to the core, and a perfect place to see and be seen (if you’re into that type of thing), this stunner of a 3 bed, 3 bath condo (not a single family) could be yours for the very low, never sell at this price in a million years, price of $1,699,000. Don’t walk, run. It’s awesome. It has a rooftop deck with hot tub smack dab in the heart of the Mission (the heart is known to wander) for Chrissakes! Oh yeah, and Four Barrel is just down the street.

Ghosts of Sunset Past: The Moss Flats

Imagine an Outer Sunset made up entirely of sand dunes, streetcars repurposed as oceanfront homes and clubhouses, bohemians having all-night parties that include midnight swims in the icy Pacific and this:

Charles Depew, late of Saginaw, Michigan, built 1626 Great Highway in 1908, minus an architect but likely inspired by Bernard Maybeck. The three-flat building, known as “The Moss Flats,” has survived long enough to join the National Register of Historic Places, decades after the last of its colorful, ramshackle neighbors dissolved into dust. It’s on the market, listed for $1.349 by similarly old San Francisco school agency Barbagelata.

Outside are the maybe-Maybeck-inspired shingles; inside are three two-bedroom tenant-occupied flats decorated in surfer chic:

Plus ocean views from the top-most unit. Longtime owners, plus longtime rental units, plus longtime exposure to salty ocean air may be a caveat in this case, but assuming the owner of the last standing evidence of Carville has no immediate plans to sell, this is your best chance to get into a pre-Doelger Outer Sunset historic property, steps from the beach and with a steady, proven income flow.

John Muir Would Be Proud & Your Hipster Friends Would Be Envious

Nestled among old growth Redwoods practically smack dab in the middle of Napa and Sonoma, this property is your ticket out of the city, and into serenity.

Picture yourself walking among old growth Redwoods, coffee in hand, the sound of a creek rustling by, deer crossing your path, sun shining through the towering trees, a warm breeze blowing by, and nobody around…for miles. No taxis, no buses, no trash, no fog, no nothing…just nature. Sounds great, right? Here’s the catch.

4520 Redwood Road, Napa, CA (45)

It needs work…quite a bit of work. BUT! With a little creativity, vision, and patience, 4520 Redwood Road, Napa could be made into your very own, unique, escape, different from all of your friends’ typical Napa or Sonoma Vineyard homes.

For $275,000 you could practically steal the property, tear down the structure, go minimal by throwing up a pre-fab,
enovo-modular-homes-1

or shipping container made mostly of glass, put your bathroom in the woods (surround it in glass too, nobody will see you), put a “Beware of Dog” sign on your very own bridge (even if you don’t have a dog), and live the life you simply can’t do here in San Francisco. Secluded. Away. Off the grid.

John Muir would be proud of you for escaping the city and living in the woods. Your friends would envy you. AirBNB or VRBO could fund you. And your hipster status would be off the charts!

And when you get tired of it…it’s only an hour’s drive to come back.

Ahh…serenity now…

Coming Soon! 2191 32nd Ave, San Francisco – $785,000

It’s not everyday you come across a home like this in the Parkside (many simply generalize it at “The Sunset”) District of San Francisco. This home at 2191 32nd Ave has been meticulously maintained by its owner and will be coming on the market very soon. We’re in the final stages of touching it up, and it will soon hit MLS and be available for showings, so get your finances in check and get ready for a home like none you have seen in recent memory in this part of town.

This unique home built in 1933 has hints of Rousseau and Tudor styles all wrapped up in one. From the soaring dark wood beamed ceilings with original art details, the rounded (and functional) wood burning fireplace in the formal living room, to the crown moldings in the formal dining room, this is truly a home not typical of this location. All throughout the residence you will find tremendously detailed, and pristine hardwood floors. Upstairs is a formal dining room, remodeled kitchen, breakfast area with built in cabinets. Skylights and a center patio bring in natural light and fresh air providing a tranquil outdoor setting quite literally in the comfort of your own home. Also upstairs are two bedrooms, one original detailed bathroom with separate tub and shower (wait til you see the purple tile), large closets, and OCEAN VIEWS from the bedrooms that will keep you checking the surf all day long.

Downstairs is a large bonus room with beautiful hardwood floors, access to backyard and deck, full bathroom, a small kitchenette, and – hold on – a wood burning fireplace! This room would be perfect as either a master suite or family/entertainment room. There is also a laundry room on this level and access to the large two car garage.

Asking price is going to be $785,000 and we’re aiming to be on the market officially in two weeks time. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. If you’ve been looking for a home anywhere in the Avenues around Sunset Blvd, this is going to be the home for you.
