Now Renting: The General’s House (1337 Pope)
Since 1915, 1337 Pope Street has served as home to numerous Army generals living in the Presidio. And now the seven-bedroom, four and one-half bath house in Kobbe Terrace is going rental with a minimum bid of $15,000 per month.
Open next weekend (2/2/07 from 2:00pm to 4:00pm and 2/3/07 from 11:00am to 2:00pm) for interested parties, budding young generals, or those who simply care to
gawk admire the beautiful property.

Wasn't this previously occupied by the Presidio Trust's first executive director (James Meadows, as I recall)? It is a beautiful house in a stunning location that appears to have recently undergone some interior renovations as well as some landscape upgrades. Even at $15,000 a month, I don't think the Trust will have any trouble renting it.

Here's one for the rent vs buy analysis people to chew on. Rents must come down or salaries must increase for people to afford this kind of property!!! This craziness cannot go on forever so I'm just going to keep buying property until this insanity corrects itself.

I was considering renting this property. But it turns out the rental application must be accompanied by a non-refundable $38 application fee. $35 and under, I would consider, but $38...

I just got back from Maui. Considering what rents for $15,000 a month there, this place is a steal.

From what I hear, the Trust has had no problem whatsoever renting its uber-expensive properties. As I understand things, some of the renters are homeowners who have cashed out and chosen to rent temporarily rather than buy again. And besides, what they offer is utterly unique: historic homes in a National Park. The good news is that the rents go toward maintenace of the park, so I'm hoping the Trust can squeeze every last nickel out of these properties.

My family lived in this house as its last military tenets when the Presidio was still a military base.
It's a fantastic house in a fantastic location. I walked to the Golden Gate Bridge every day to catch the bus for school. It's a short walk to the World War II Memorial and the beach. We were lucky to live in such an interesting place, we certainly never could have afforded to live in it at this price.

Lots of activity at 1337 Pope... methinks the place is coming on the market.
