We’re In Love (Again)

2645 Baker

First and foremost, the pictures in the listing don’t do it justice. Not even close. That being said, do you remember what we wrote about 4381 26th Street in Noe? Well, 2645 Baker is that times two. And considering the price is roughly times two as well, it’s probably a good thing. Designed by Peterson Architects, the home boasts extensive use of mahogany, bamboo, glass, and limestone. And we love it.

[Side Note: John Peterson, of Peterson Architects, also founded the non-profit Public Architecture which led the design of ScrapHouse last year. And we love that too.]

I was in this place 4 or 5 years ago (I think) when it was last up for sale. I'm not sure but I didn't think it sold. The place is absolutely gorgeous, but always priced too high for a home with no real view.

I think it was built in 2001. Agree that it's gorgeous, but have to somewhat disagree about the "no real view" - third floor views are fantastic.
