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.

San Francisco’s Million Dollar (Sold Property) Club

A quick look at all of the million dollar plus sales (142 of them) in San Francisco in the last month for properties that closed escrow between 8/19 and 9/19/2012.

[Please note: Clicking an image below will not take you to that property's details page, simply a bigger photo. To see details, hover over photo, see address, and find it on the list of properties below, or contact me for details. Sorry for hassle.]

Instead of being able to share all of these properties, with photos, under one link, MLS puts a limit on that of 100 properties…so we had to break it up. Details below, and kudos if you’re in the club:

240 Round Hill In Tiburon For Sale, So Close To San Francisco, And Not Yet On MLS

I’m not quite sure just how many people from around the world hit this here little (20,000 monthly unique visitors) real estate blog looking for Marin real estate, but one thing I do know is that Marin is pretty damn hard to beat. It’s a hop, skip, and a jump away from one of the best cities in the world, the weather is fantastic, the commute is minor, and the schools are awesome. Because of this, I often find myself browsing Marin real estate, both on and “off market” (not on MLS), and recently came across this $3,250,000 Tiburon pocket listing.

Five bedrooms, four and one half baths, views of Golden Gate Bridge & Bay, designer kitchen, family room with fireplace, formal living room with fireplace (yes that’s two fireplaces), formal dining area, two car attached garage (no parking sticker needed), level yard & gardens (not the postage stamp variety either)…and should I go on?



If you’ve been dying to move to San Francisco, but have children and just can’t seem to figure out the logic and lottery that is the San Francisco Unified School District, then you might consider Tiburon. And if you want modern, open space, and the calming effects of water, then this property might just be the place for you, and I happen to know a damn good Realtor that can get you in before the rest.

Oh, and if you’re worried about the commute to San Francisco, don’t. You can take the ferry to work! You’ll be so green all of your friends will wonder why you never have to buy $6/gallon gas!

Calling All San Francisco Surfers (And Wannabes), We Have The Pad For You!

In our never ending quest to find the ultimate San Francisco surf pad, we were delighted to see one of our favorite oceanfront homes hit the market recently, 2534 Great Highway.

It’s not everyday you can buy one of the few homes on the Great Highway that easily clear the sand dunes to enjoy unobstructed (save for a little fog 4 months out of the year) views of easily the best surf spot in all of Northern California, Ocean Beach (we may be fibbing a bit on that comment, but go with the fantasy). If we weren’t Realtors working in a recession fueled by real estate, we’d snatch this 3 bed, 2.5 bath, $1,299,000 baby up in a second.

But we are Realtors, and the market has a long ways to go for a complete rebound, so we’ll just come crash your parties, and install a nice little surf cam on your roof. We promise nobody will know the location and you too can live the dream of being a San Francisco surfer (or wannabe). You’d even be (close) neighbors with the owners/founders of the Beach Chalet/Park Chalet, so maybe you’d get a free pint or two post surf to wash away the salt water…

Guess it’s time to get back on the blogging wagon and go fishin, cuz $1,299,000 ain’t happenin for us any time soon! Have we mentioned our fresh lime margaritas?
