From Vacant Lot To Contemporary Home In Eight Short Months: 2192 Funston Ave

What was…

2192Funston

Is now…

2192 Funston Ave, San Francisco CA

But not yet…

Look for this to hit MLS any day, unless someone goes and knocks the seller’s socks off with a big time offer between now and this weekend. Sold in May of 2012 for $489,000 as a “Great opportunity for a developer to build a stunning 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath single family home in highly coveted Golden Gate Heights, [with] shovel-ready approved plans for a single family home in excess of 3,000 sqft, elevator, sauna, 2 car garage, deck, and much more!”

It’s now touted as “a newly constructed contemporary home with panoramic views on a quiet Golden Gate Heights cul-de-sac. [And this] chic and modern beauty is wonderfully laid out on five levels. The stairs are beautiful, especially with the glass paneled railings that create an open and airy sense of space. Too tired to walk up stairs? No worries — that’s what the elevator is for!”

From the looks of the pictures provided by Open Homes Photography, and the minimalist approach to maximizing the views, we’re very curios to see how this $1,680,000 four bedroom, three and one half bath home does in this oh so hot market of ours…especially since it may be one of the few (or only) vacant lots turned single family home west of Twin Peaks with an elevator…and did we mention the views?!

Make sure to check the interactive floor plans, and get yourself out there this weekend to have a look. It’s not something you see everyday in that neck of the woods, and so far, you’re one of the first to know it even exists.

Just Say Eichler…

Following on the heals heels (thanks for catching the spelling fail “word bitch“) of a post I did earlier today about some homes I know are available for sale, but not yet “on the market”, I present to you 76 Amber Drive, an original Eichler, in the Eichler rich zone of San Francisco’s Diamond Heights neighborhood, that had been “quietly” marketed for a good couple of weeks before finally hitting MLS today.







Sexy it is not. Eichler it is, and sometimes that all you have to say…

From Mid-Century to Modern, 3577 Pacific Returns (Almost)

The last recorded sale of 3577 Pacific (2 bed, 1.5 baths, on the Presidio wall right across from Julias Kahn Playground) was August 31, 2005 for $2,225,000 and she was definitely a mid-century diamond in the rough. Well…she’s back and she’s looking sweet. She did get a bit bigger, and more modern though.

She’s been developed by Mitch Menaged, designed by John Maniscalco Architecture, and Huang Iboshi Architecture and now has six bedrooms, four bathrooms, roof deck, waterfall, chef’s kitchen with Miele Double Ovens, Steam Oven, Espresso Machine, Dacor Microwave Drawer, Gaggenau Ceramic Cooktop, Liebherr Wine Cooler, an 800 bottle temperature controlled display wine cellar, Phase Four Home Automation System, Philippe Starck designed Duravit tub with ceiling water fill, custom cabinets, walnut flooring, Cat 5 wiring, Carrera Marble Fireplace, sculptural stone, iron & glass cantilevered staircase…(deep breath)…and of course a few “green” features like energy efficient radiant in-floor heating, wiring in place for photovoltaic panels, made with fly ash concrete, and a drought tolerant landscape, but we’ll stop there.

Pics, you ask?
You’ll have to settle for the old ones for now, the new ones are coming soon. This home should be on the market within the week, and don’t expect the price to be anywhere near what it sold for in 2005.



There is an invitation only preview on Thursday, so if this is the type of home you’d like to buy, we’d be happy to take you as our guest.

(For those that sometimes ask, the answer is yes. As is the case with most properties we feature on theFrontSteps, we have already been inside this one as well. So agents, keep those invites and tips coming.)

[Update: Price $7,700,000, still no pics.]
[Update: Price already reduced (one week on the market) to $6,950,000, still no pics.]

Getting Twisted in Cole Valley (1342 Shrader)

We’ve been in, around, over, and under this remodeled 5 bedroom, 4.5 bath home at 1342 Shrader in Cole Valley, and it is absolutely awesome. It’s coming to the MLS very soon (if not already) and some lucky person (hopefully our clients) will be throwing some killer parties in this great home.


The little cottage out back:

It’s a beautiful house by all accounts and we’re hoping our clients like it when they see it tomorrow, but we can’t help notice… Is that Twister we see?

What else are we to do when the country is in a recession?

Back to topic, there is a great elementary school just down the street (Grattan Elementary) as well as a lovely pre-school on the same block (Jubilee). Oh, and Cole Street is just around the corner, Haight is close by, a park right across the street and the “banana belt” weather Cole Valley gets in the Summer. Yes, we’re fans…

Inside Our New Favorite House: 313 Duncan

It looks like our clients aren’t going to pull the trigger on one of the nicest new homes (soon to be) on the market (313 Duncan), so we’re free to run our mouths.

High resolution pictures coming soon, but for now, here is a glimpse inside the living / dining / eating / entertaining / kitchen area:

The home has gone through a total and complete renovation and seismic retrofit. Essentially, the only thing that remains from the original home is the facade and the cottage out back, which has also been extensively remodeled into a very killer one bedroom / loft cottage with beamed ceilings (tons of sky lights), a studio kitchen and loads of charm. You could probably rent it for close $3,000 month if you needed to.

The large home on the front of the lot that you’d see from the street is now 4 bedrooms, 4 baths, three levels, with a top roof deck and atrium area that would be ideal for an office (women in skirts be warned, the floor is glass that looks all the way down to the living room). Each bedroom has outdoor space directly off the rooms as well as a private bathroom. The kitchen is all Dacor and quite simply awesome (except the glass hood which will certainly meet a few heads when cooking). There is a nice garden and the best part is walking into the home and being able to see all the way through the house to the yard and cottage in the back. Oh, and it has two car parking. Technically, it’s still two units, but more like a large single family with a nice little guest house.

We’ve been in twice now, but would love to take some new clients through before it hits the market (Thursday). Price $2,995,000 (ish). If you’re asking for us to speak to the price, not going to happen. We’ll just say we’re watching this closely.

Millennium Tower, San Francisco: A walkthrough, a few photos, a little scoop, and my opinion

For those of you that read this San Francisco real estate blog on a regular basis, you’ll know I’ve been watching the progress of many of the new developments around town. One of my favorites happens to be Millennium Tower (301 Mission). Not because I’ve sold many units there, but because it truly stands out (and above) from the others.

img_6363

(Yes, that is the Infinity you see way down there, and this shot is only from the 26th floor.)

Don’t get me wrong, I love the other new developments (towers) as well, and I’d love to show any of you around all of the buildings, because they all have their attractions, but Millennium Tower just seems to have that vibe. That…je ne sais quoi…It seems like it will have the same high end/high net worth residents (at least one penthouse in contract at +$10 million and….damn I want to tell you more, but promised not to) as those in the St. Regis, but twice as many amenities at half the dues…not to mention a Michael Minna restaurant. The Infinity feels much more Hard Rock Hotel meets San Francisco (not a bad thing at all), and One Rincon Hill with the dazzling views, just doesn’t have the location (trust me, I’ve had several clients turn away from the location) to put it in the same class as St. Regis and Millennium Tower, not to mention the uncertainty of Tower Two.

img_6373

I must say I am a bit disappointed with the ranges, and islands in the kitchens at the Millennium, and that some units don’t have deeded parking, but those are easy enough to remedy. The building is solid, and the finishes are very high end. The views are extraordinary, the location is getting better, and the amenities are through the roof. The units are still selling very quickly and many owners losing their money in the stock market have bought multiple units here, so all signs still point to a successful development by Millennium Partners, and I can’t wait until they start moving people in.

img_6377

(Penthouse terrace views.)

There are still some very choice units available at the Millennium and several at many other developments around town. I haven’t heard of any negotiations or price incentives at Millennium Tower, but I know some of the other developments around town have been offering them up, and the “off market” trading that is going on at many of them is nothing short of extraordinary.

I have more photos, and a lot more details, but you’ll have to contact me if you’d like to learn more.

Coming Soon: 2950 Vallejo, it’ll only take you $25,000,000

Nestled into, or perched atop (it’s all perspective), one of the most prestigious hills in San Francisco (we’d almost go so far as to say the world), 2950 Vallejo appears to be coming soon…for $25,000,000.

From our reader:

One of my absolutely favorite houses is hitting the market. You probably already know this, but I haven’t seen it on any of the blogs as of yet… 2960 Vallejo is now on Barbara Callan’s website for 25 million… that’s almost 5000k per foot, which is just astounding.

Hang on now, before you start freaking out about location, and size, and price, and square footage, and all that…the next email moments after:

Oops! I gave you the wrong address.. It’s 2950 Vallejo… and it’s 4000 per foot.. sorry!!

Apology accepted, still astounding (it’s all perspective, you do get seven bedrooms and eight baths after all), and thanks for the tip.

[Update: "It's definitely 2950... 2960 Vallejo is the shingle property next door on the left. It sold in 06 for like 8 million"-from the same reader, whom we love!]

[Update #2: Some interior pictures are now available at Barbara Callan's website.]

Much nicer than expected, to be perfectly honest.

As a reminder, you can send tips, comments, or questions to theFrontSteps@gmail.com.

We tried to tell you, 188 Minna #33D at the St. Regis hits the block

We did try to tell you, and a couple of people responded, with whom we might be writing an offer on this unit at the St. Regis , but for those that missed it, you’re day has come too. Unit 33D at the St. Regis hits the block for $3,725,000 and it is sweet! Glad to see the price has been nailed down, as we’ve been told several prices were in consideration prior to hitting the market (think 3 agents competing for the same listing/off market sale with us.)

33d

If that picture looks familiar, it’s because you’ve been swimming in our Flickr pool and might have been wondering which phat pad that was.

img_5115

It’s 33D and the most recent comparable is 23D, which sold off market for $3.3M, a full 10 floors lower! Of course it was a “dual agency”, and an “off market” deal, so it is always hard to gauge whether those prices make for an accurate indicator of market value. Nonetheless, that’s the best comp and that’s what everyone will be looking at.

Views from the 5*th Floor of One Rincon Hill

We took you to this very floor a long, long time ago before it had walls (right after an earthquake mind you), and we took you there again just recently. This time, we’re bringing you a taste of what life will be like on top and from a North East corner unit…at night…and guess what? If you missed your chance to get one of these trophy units at the sales office, you might want to give us a shout, because there are more opportunities than you could imagine.

And yes, if you bought above the 54th floor your views should not be impacted by the second tower (build date still t.b.d.), and you can, without a shadow of a doubt, see all three bridges (Golden Gate, Richmond, Bay).

“The Ultimate Rock Star Pad” hits the market (542-44 Natoma)

Why settle for just one of the penthouse units (starting at $1,350,000), when you can have the recording studio and commercial condo as well (price upon request)? The San Francisco Soundworks building hits the market, and you know you’ve always dreamed of having “the ultimate rock star pad”, so here’s your chance.

Millennium Tower going up, and the inside scoop (301 Mission)

This is a poach with permission from sfnewdevelopments.com and our friend Mark Choey. Thanks Mark!

millenium3.jpg

Located on Mission St between Beale and Fremont St near San Francisco’s Financial District and right next to the Transbay Terminal site, the entire project will consist of 419 condos in 2 towers: one at 11 stories and another at 59 stories.

The taller tower will be a 59 story building with 362 total units. It will be the tallest residential condo building west of the Mississippi – even taller than 1 Rincon Hill apparently and the 4th tallest building in San Francisco. It will be separated into several different classes of condos: “The Residences”, “The Grand Residences”, and “The City Residences” and each will be accessible via separate lobbies.

Floors 3-25 will consist of “The Residences” and will feature:

* 191 total condos

* 9 units per floor

* a mix of 1BR’s (80 total), 2BR’s, and 2BR’s + Den

Floors 26th and above are known as “The Grand Residences”:

* The lower 22 floors from the 26th floor to the 48th floors will have 6 units / floor

* 49th floor and above to the penthouses will be 4 units / floor

* The top 2 floors will be exclusive penthouse units with only 2 units / floor

* The 60th Floor will feature two terraces

* All units will either be 2BR/2BA’s, 2BR/3BA’s, 3BR/2BA’s, or 3BR/3BA’s.

The shorter 11 story building is called the “City Residences”:

* Tribeca-style loft spaces ranging in square footage from 1400-2000+ sf

* There will be a total of 53 units in this building:

* 17 one bed/two baths and 36 two bedroom/two baths

Apart from the 5-star hotel service, there are tremendous amenities in this building including a ground-floor celebrity-chef restaurant, a 20000 sf Club Level, a 5500 sf fitness center run by Sports Club LA, a 75 ft lap pool under a skylight right by the courtyard, a tasting room and a wine room that will house a $3M winelist.

339 dedicated parking spots for 419 units means that 80 units will not have deeded parking but leasing plans are currently being worked out – but we feel with this central downtown location and the future of the Transbay Terminal quickly being decided, lack of deeded parking shouldn’t be as much of an issue as it is in other less conveniently located buildings.

Currently pouring concrete on the 42nd floor, they are averaging 1 floor per week. The glass curtain is currently being installed somewhere around the 35th floor.

Close of Escrow is scheduled for Spring of 2009.

And of course, when we finally get in there, we’ll give you our two cents too. Thanks again Mark!

Large and in Charge (3730 Washington)

On May 14th of this year, we alluded to a “very big, very expensive” home that will be coming on the market. Since I just drove by and saw the sign out front, we’re finally letting you all know. That was a tough secret to keep, let me tell you.

3730Washington>

3730 Washington is coming on the market, and last we heard the price will be around $18,000,000 [Guess they changed their minds....$14.5M, 7 bedrooms, 5.5 baths.] As of this moment, MLS is still giving us troubles, so we can’t confirm whether it is listed or not, but there is certainly a sign out front and Richard Weil (Hill & Co.), did in fact beat out Barbara Callan (McGuire) for the listing.

We’ll post pictures, [correct price], and MLS link as soon as we have it.

1771 North Point: A First Look ™, Before-After, and Walkthrough of the 2007 Pacific Coast Builders Conference Eco-Friendly Marina Green Showcase Home

It’s not everyday a home comes along that truly makes our jaws drop, but we were given a preview of 1771 North Point , and now you’re getting a preview too. Of course, there is a story to everything, but we’ll just give you a taste.
Purchased in March of 2006 (spent 104 days on the market, zoned RH-2, 1965 sq/ft, built in 1932), this home has been completely, and we mean completely, gutted and renovated. From what we can tell, the only thing that was spared was the facade, the chimney and accompanying arches in the front room.

BEFORE:
1771northpointbefore2

1771northpointbefore
Now…it is a truly amazing home with every conceivable convenience you could possibly want and all the custom detailing to match…including a 5 car garage. We were only able to take a few “after” shots because they were still setting up furniture and artwork, which will all be auctioned off by the way, but here’s a taste.
AFTER:
1771northpointtilekitchen2

1771northpointgeo2

1771northpointkitchen
This home is amazing! Yes…we’re calling it amazing. The details are incredible! The flow and functionality of the home is awesome! There is so much light coming in, you might as well forget about buying lightbulbs for years. The south facing yard is perfect. The home is NOT on landfill, and frankly there is way too much for us to describe here. You owe it to yourself, and the Northern California Cancer Center to go visit before it hits the market.
(Disclaimer: We have no affiliation with this project at all. We were simply invited to go check it out before it was finished, and we’re glad we did.)

Bettin’ Fools

[Update 6/18/07: $296,000 Price Reduction]

2340larkin.jpg

2340 Larkin #2 hit the market this week (asking $2,295,000). It is a 2 bed, 2 bath, 2100 square foot condo in Russian Hill, and we’re bettting it’s sold (or at least in contract) before the end of the month.

Yeah, we know, the market is horrible, prices have come down, buyers have split for the East Bay (See reason we live here #5), or even points further east, but we’re bettin’ it’s gone before we even remember to update you. Care to wager with us?

It was purchased three years ago for $1.4MM. We leave the math to you.
