Regardless of the fact that some of you might feel we’re simply promoting PocketListings.net as the best and only place the nation will soon share “not on MLS” real estate opportunities, there is some pretty damn good real estate porn popping up on there these days, and we’d bet you’d be upset with us if we didn’t share this eye candy…(Damned if we do, damned if we don’t kind of thing.)
This detached home sits on a private gated lot surrounded by lush greenery, mature Monterey pines, brick pathways and offers a tranquil setting. This amazing cul-de-sac features some of San Francisco’s most talked about treasures including many homes designed by Willis Polk and one by famed architect Joseph Esherick. Showcased throughout this home are new ebony stained hardwood floors, restored redwood paneled walls, restored arched French paned windows that were salvaged from the 1915 Panama Pacific International Exposition, high ceilings, moldings, recessed lighting and spa-style remodeled limestone bathrooms with Lefroy Brooks fixtures from England.
We could just cut and paste the entire description of this truly extraordinary property right here in this blog post, but that would take away from getting you to click through to the new site now wouldn’t it. ;-)
Oh wait, we forgot to mention this home was “designed by architect Julia Morgan in 1917 for Mrs. Horatio Livermore, and its second owner, the late advertising icon Hal Riney completely renovated the home with the help of architect Karl G. Smith in 2005.”
We love our dear readers, and we try never to annoy, but we have an obligation to report all the good real estate we find, and this property in Russian Hill is no exception.
How could you say no to three bedrooms, five bathrooms, four car parking, a price tag of $4,900,000, and views that are, well, priceless?

“Real estate porn?” What real estate porn? I didn’t see any at pocketlistings (maybe you have to be logged in as an agent).
Barbara’s old listing covers the details for everyone else, though: http://homesite.obeo.com/viewer/default.aspx?tourid=547695&refURL=&locale=en-US
Yes, you have to be a licensed real estate agent/broker to join the site, and yes, you have to then be logged in to see photos. The site is designed by agents, for agents.
