After last being listed for $6,350,000 in 2007 (and sold), 2668 Vallejo is back on the market for $8,500,000. Think renovation more than appreciation over the past two years.
According to permits, the basement was partially excavated and first turned into living space and then later converted into a two-car garage (complete with new curb cut). A wine cellar and workshop were added, bathrooms were spruced up, and the foundation was partially replaced.
More recently a three level addition on the back, a new roof deck up top, a media room extension down below, and a kitchen and master suite renovation inside were all kicked-off with an anticipated completion date of June 2009 (“an opportunity for the sophisticated buyer to select their finishes” in listing speak).
And while a sale for anything over $6,350,000 is sure to be counted and misreported by some (or some reports) as “appreciation,” we trust that any plugged-in person would know it’s not. Regardless, we do appreciate the home.
