SOLD | 707 Cole St. | Cole Valley | $2,606,000

Quite possibly one of the busiest sets of open houses I’ve ever held, with nearly 250-300 people through the door, 707 Cole St. has changed hands to a pair of wonderful people that will hopefully enjoy this home as much as my clients did. Listed for $2,495,000, in the end it didn’t go nuts, but we still got over list and closed at $2,606,000.

On a side note, I have TWO properties in Cole Valley that are similar to this, and they are not on MLS. So if you, or anyone you know, are interested in an off market Cole Valley property, get in touch.

707 Cole Marketing Remarks:

This timeless Cole Valley single family home situated in one of the most desirable locations in all of San Francisco is a circa 1896 Victorian loaded with period details and charm, and updated for today’s standards. Just two blocks to the heart of Cole Valley, the N-Judah, Golden Gate Park, Haight-Ashbury, and so many more iconic San Francisco locations, this is truly a must-see property.


Carefully maintained to preserve the era in which it was built and upgraded with the finest modern amenities, 707 Cole features a formal entry/foyer and grand staircase leading upstairs to three of the four generously proportioned bedrooms (including master with it’s own fireplace), one bathroom, and conveniently located stackable washer and dryer. The entire top floor is bathed in natural light and period charm, including well preserved, beautiful original wood floors, and access to the large attic.

The main level features gorgeous, newly refinished wood floors, a formal living room with fireplace, a formal dining room, also with fireplace and wonderful French doors that open to a private outdoor deck perfect for indoor/outdoor living when San Francisco weather delights. Also on this level is the modern kitchen with bar seating, granite countertops, custom cabinets, recessed lighting, Viking Gas Range, stainless appliances, and windows looking out on the Japanese maples and large avocado tree in the professionally landscaped backyard.

The recent, down to the studs, remodeled ground floor is a perfect space for extra guests, playroom, home office, or your teenager that wants his/her privacy. Complete with wood floors, open flow, custom wood closets and cabinetry, a modern bathroom addition, and amazing floor to ceiling pivot door that brings the outside in and truly makes the transition from indoor to outdoor living seamless, this fourth bedroom is a wonderful addition to the already amazing home. Also on this level is garage parking for two cars, and interior access to the mudroom with custom wood cabinets and heaps of additional storage for all of your toys, bikes, skis, boots and shoes.

The backyard was professionally designed and maintained with seating areas, lush plantings, excellent flow, and low maintenance artificial turf for year-round enjoyment.

SOLD | 456 Belvedere | Cole Valley | $4,500,000

Congratulations to my buyers that just scored this AAA located Cole Valley home at 456 Belvedere. We were the first people to see it, and we wrote an offer that day. They went big and fast to win, and I told ’em they can’t ever move. It’s that kind of house. It’s that kind of market, and it’s those kinds of tactics that get you property in San Francisco. This market waits for nobody.

SOLD | 666 Post #1201 | Downtown / Union Square | $732,500

Congratulations to my clients, the sellers, and hats off to the buyer. This quintessential San Francisco residence has just changed hands, and I’m totally jealous.

Tastefully, and eco-consciously remodeled 12th Floor one bedroom, one bathroom unit with amazing views of San Francisco in The Crown Towers – an exquisitely maintained & managed elegant Art Deco CO-OP Building built in 1926, and located just two blocks from Union Square.

SOLD! | 1957 11th Ave | Golden Gate Heights | $1,400,000

There is a story to this one…Nonetheless, I’m pleased to report the (finally!) successful sale of this amazing Golden Gate Heights Property.

Nestled in the hills of Golden Gate Heights with wonderful vistas to the North/North East, surrounded by beautiful trees and a lush garden, and tastefully remodeled for the minimalist in all of us, including a painstakingly thought out master suite on the lower level, which opens to the garden, 1957 11th Ave is the home you don’t want to miss.


Having found this wonderfully crafted home built in 1948, the architect/owner of this home set out on a journey to create an oasis of minimalist living and design aesthetic nestled into the hills of this vibrant and bustling city of San Francisco. The kitchen was remodeled in 2008 with a focus on clean lines and simple living while maintaining the charm of the original home. In 2014 the lower level was completely remodeled incorporating a designer master suite with walk-in closet and ultra modern master bathroom complete with radiant floor heat, Hans Grohe fixtures, Ariostea Italian High-Tech Wood tile, and Toto toilet.

Not wanting the upstairs bath to be outdone, it too underwent an extensive designer remodel in early 2016 also with radiant floor heat, Ariostea Italian High-Tech Wood floor tile, Honed Italian MaxFine Calacatta wall tile, Toto toilet, and a wonderfully situated window which make tub soaks and showers feel as if you’re in the garden.

In addition to the remodeled designer master suite, kitchen, and luxury baths, this home contains a total of three bedrooms, approximately 1595 square feet, parking for one car, a woodburning fireplace, hardwood floors with original detailing, high ceilings, views, hallway skylight, a “Romeo & Juliet” balcony from the second bedroom to the garden, a deck off of the kitchen perfect for outdoor dining/entertainment (and of course barbecuing), plantation shutters, new water main, new furnace, tankless water heater, stackable washer & dryer, recessed lighting, and a newly installed irrigation system to keep the amazingly lush garden alive and well.

This home…you must see.

The Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Million Dollar Beach Bungalow

It’s official…in San Francisco a million bucks barely buys you an (almost on the beach) beach bungalow…actually you need $1,050,000…and depending on what size waves you’re thinking of surfing at the most popular surf spot north of San Diego, you’ll want to consider ultra custom space-saving racks.

In case you’re wondering, it was listed at $699,000. It is close enough to catch the blowing Springtime Sand, so I guess you can call it a “beach bungalow”.

Surf is not up this weekend in San Francisco (Surprise!), but surely you know a friend with a boat. Happy Memorial Day weekend!
