1957 11th Ave Kitchen

For Sale: 1957 11th Ave | Golden Gate Heights | $1,295,000

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.

Top 10 Underbids | A Medley Of Sorts

When I peruse these top 10 Overbid and Underbid lists that we crank out at The Goods for all of our clients (myself included), I often sit and wonder what is more of a story:


A) The ultra modern residence at 748 Treat that clinched this week’s top Underbid spot by selling for nearly 7% below asking (not much of a story here),
B) The big ticket sale at 3876 Clay, which, although sold for under asking, still sold for $1300+ per square foot (I vividly remember the days we started seeing $1000/square foot on the radar, which now seems like a distant memory),
C) What you get for under $700,000 in San Francisco in the single family home category, or
D) How when we live in small spaces that are insanely expensive some of us are forced to store our “wine cellar” next to our shoes.

Regardless, it’s all good information, provides you some insight into the market, your neighborhood, San Francisco, and what you have to do to get your foot in our Real Estate door, or that now might be a great time for you to get out. Food for thought, on a weekly basis…

7 Hidden Gems in Golden Gate Park

For San Francisco residents, Golden Gate park is that place you’ve religiously taken out-of-towners and spent countless afternoons strolling around with your SO or kids. But there is probably more than one secret spot you’ve never stumbled across in one of your trips around the 1,017 acre public space. Below, we’ve pulled together a collection of the top overlooked attractions at our city’s crown jewel –  after all, Golden Gate Park was named one of the America’s best public parks just a couple of years ago. Let us know in the comments which ones you think are the best on the list!

    1. Stow Lake: Do you want to recreate a scene from The Notebook? Rent a rowboat or paddle boat and take a peaceful ride on the lake listening to birds chirping as the ducks swim past.
      *The only thing to watch out for here is a possible sighting of the The Ghost of Stow Lake, spotted in the area for more than a hundred years.
    2. San Francisco Botanical Gardens: Have you wanted to see plants from different regions of the world? Come visit the Botanical Gardens; plus, admission is free for all San Francisco residents.
    3. Carousel: Do you have kids or just want to pretend you are a kid again for a day? Hop on the merry go round and pick your favorite animal to go on a ride that is sure to put a smile on your face for the rest of the day.
    4. Bison Paddock: Yes, you read that right. There are bison walking in an area of the park. Stop and take it all in because how many people can say they can see bison in their local park?
    5. Tennis Courts: Grab your racket and hit the courts! Complete a match then take a break and have a picnic on the lawn area nearby.
    6. Conservatory of Flowers: Twist and turn your way through rooms filled with bright flowers set up in pots on the floor, tables, and ceiling. Depending on the month, you might find butterflies or venus fly traps among other special “guests.”
    7. Music Concourse: Located between the California Academy of Sciences and de Young Museum, a stage is set up for multiple different genres of live music. Some days you may stumble upon artists creating new pieces and displaying their available artwork.

Not sure where all these exciting places are located? No problem! Take a look at the map and start your exciting adventure.


[Editor’s Note: As part of my commitment to San Francisco and the greater good of all residents in this wonderful city, I have teamed up with some USF Journalism students to allow them to get their feet wet with writing/blogging/marketing on a larger scale.

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.
