It’s not everyday a home sells for $3,800,000 above asking…actually in San Francisco we hardly bat an eye at this anymore, especially when paired with buzzwords #PacificHeights and #MidCentury. It also helps to be an extremely rare property in a one of a kind location:

The unique home with wonderful public rooms boasts sweeping Bay & Golden Gate Views and a Sheltered South facing Tommy Church Garden. 4 Bedrooms + library. 4 Baths. 2 Half Baths. 4 Fireplaces.Garage.Carport.Entry reveals a beautiful private garden & covered breezeway leading to the front door.

Here’s the kicker, on a percentage over asking basis (how we calculate the top 10) 3610 Washington is not even top dog…4041 Cesar Chavez, the little Noe Valley fixer, takes that honor.
