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.

1 Ecker (16 Jessie) San Francisco: First Resale Hits The Market, Not Yet On MLS

This property has sold off market after one showing.

The first resale within 1 Ecker since its renovation in 2010, this is a rare 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit you won’t want to miss. Marketed “not on MLS” throughout the holiday season, now is your chance to beat the competition before (if) it gets to MLS.

Sold for $755,000, 1 Ecker (16 Jessie) unit #204 is an appealing blend of modern and timeless San Francisco charm. The original century-old building structure was painstakingly restored and updated with brand-new modern interior fixtures and finishes in every bedroom and bath. The soaring arched windows are 100% recycled, and the building’s sustainable interiors feature Bosch Energy Star® appliances (including gas range for the chef in all of us), Cesarstone kitchen counters, and bamboo flooring. Nestled among some of San Francisco’s tallest structures, the grand windows and high ceilings fill this residence with generous amounts of natural light, while the original brick structure is a welcome backdrop for modern, sophisticated living.

1 Ecker’s common area amenities include the comfortable rooftop lounge, with grill and plenty of seating for entertaining a large group or enjoying a quiet dinner for two. Sleek, comfortable modular seating allows for adjustment to meet your group’s needs, as art form meets function. Exotic foliage in vibrant hues frames an antique Balinese water fountain, a tranquil centerpiece. The lounge grill is ready to serve up favorites year-round.. The interior courtyard offers a stylish visual backdrop featuring exotic, vibrant foliage. Common areas are maintained by the building’s Home Owners Association, and monthly HOA dues of $525.72 for this unit help serve to keep them in pristine order. HOA dues also include water, garbage, and professional property management services.

The location of this wonderful city home puts you steps away from tons of shops, restaurants, clubs, art museums (MOMA), theaters (Metreon), Outdoor Parks (Yerba Buena), conference centers (Moscone), World Champion baseball stadium (Go Giants), and so much more. Multiple Zipcar® locations are within walking distance for pay-as-you-go car convenience, and the future Transbay Transit Center steps away at 1st and Mission Streets will house 11 transportation systems, including AC Transit, BART, Caltrain, Muni & Amtrak, for easy access to all of the Bay Area and beyond.

*Images are not of the actual unit; however, finishes, quality, and features are the same or better.

First Dibs: Cole Valley / Ashbury Heights To The Studs Modern Remodel With Big Views!

Okay, so you’re not getting first dibs, as I have been showing this property to one buyer on and off for about three weeks. Since they have decided not to move forward, you get second dibs. This is a completely gutted Edwardian right on the border of Cole Valley and Ashbury Heights. The developer is sparing no expense on finishes and it is going to be stunning and modern. It is going to have 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, roughly 2800 square feet of living space, 2 car (4 if you count carport and street) parking, designer kitchen and baths, terraced east facing backyard, and a booming top floor room and deck (pictured) with incredible views of the Pacific Ocean, St. Ignacious Cathedral, Marin Headlands, and the tops of the Golden Gate Bridge.

The property has been structurally and seismically upgraded as well, including partially new foundation, support beams, the works. If you missed out on 121 Beulah, or 1027 Cole, or any number of the hot properties that have flown off the shelf in Cole Valley recently, you’re not going to want to miss this one. The best part…it’s still under construction, so not only will you not have to compete with other buyers, but you can also have a say in final touches and even make some alterations if you get in there asap.

Once again, to all the people thinking I’m hiding listings, this is NOT my listing, it’s not even listed. I am putting this out there to unrepresented buyers, or buyers that would like to have a chance at this property, and all the others I find. Principals only please.

p.s. I know of another one coming on Belvedere, but not of this caliber. This one I’m showing you here is going to be near $3,000,000.
