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 | 179 Carl | Cole Valley Victorian | $3,200,000

I’m pleased to report the sale of this amazing property, which we were able to get featured not only on SFGate (Cole Valley Queen Anne with fabulous wallpaper for $2.695), but also Curbed (Queen Anne Done Up in Designer Style Looks for $2.695), and possibly even in San Francisco Cottages & Gardens just closed today for a whopping $505,000 over list price at $3,200,000. Considering we were targeting a $2.9-$3M sale, I’d consider this knocked out of the park.

Congratulations to my wonderful clients on an extraordinary Cole Valley sale, as well as to the buyers who are sure to love this amazing home in an epic location.

How Big Is Golden Gate Park?

In San Francisco, just like any major city, empty/open space is coveted, as is storage space, which is not cheap. For instance, an additional storage space at one of the new developments in San Francisco, Rockwell, costs $12,000. And because of that, being creative and smart about how to store and what to store, basically getting rid of all the shit you don’t need, is important.

The folks at SpareFoot, who provide tips about self-storage, moving, home organization, and much more sent me this great infographic to share with all of you, and some great information to boot. In one of his articles, Brian Shreckengast analyzes how many storage units you’d need to store Golden Gate Park (working on that visual).

At only 47 square miles, San Francisco is one of the most compact cities in the nation. But despite its size, it’s still home to one of the nation’s largest urban parks: Golden Gate Park. At three miles long and a half mile wide, the park covers 1,017 acres and features trails, sports fields, gardens, and playgrounds. In order to better express the park’s true size, we used mapping tool MAPfrappe to draw an outline around Golden Gate Park, which we could then move anywhere around the globe. This special tool adjusted our outline’s shape to account for Google Maps’ Mercator Projection distortions, which means the size of the outline remained accurate.

If you were wondering how many 10×10 storage units you’d need to store Golden Gate Park (these are the things we think about here at SpareFoot) well, that would be 4,460,544 units. And as the average price of a 10×10 storage unit in San Francisco is $219, you could expect to pay $976,859,136 in monthly rental fees — and you thought your rent was getting bad.

(Wait for it…the image may take some time to load, it’s massive…patience…come on little buddy…there it is!)
