4381 26th Street Listed At 2006 Price And Looking For A Repeat?
On the market in 2006 asking $2,479,000, the Mark Brand designed contemporary single-family at 4381 26th Street sold for $2,600,000 in a month, an outcome that was more the rule than an exception for the market at the time.

Four years ago, and brand new, the finishes were showing their wear. It was as if the developer spent all their money in aquisition, permit and rough construction and then tack in cheap baubles for sale. Can't imagine it shows any better now.
The developer was lucky to get what they did in 2006. The sellers this time around? Not so much.

I love the look of modern contemporary design, but have since realized that it can be a hard (and expensive) look to keep up (and do well). Traditional ages well, wear and a bit of clutter can look charming, but there is no such give in modern. Too much work to deal with, IMHO.

There's a pretty sweet variation on this (same architect?) across the street and down a bit.

I like the house. Looks like Vangaurd is selling the property again. Not sure if its the same agent this time around. Probably.
So, let's see. Same agent, same (list) price, oh, and the same pictures!?!? Isn't this a little misleading to show the new construction pictures? Maybe not as bad as the Baker street photoshop, but I'm sorry, but homes age, a lot, over a 4 year period. Especially new construction homes. Here is a link to a more recent pic from May 2007. It's odd that this pic has all those crazy wires? I guess they must have added them???
More (of the same 2006) pics in the architects website.

Love that Mapjack pic...shows that Mark Brand is a very sensitive architect. The place is very modern, but perfectly in context with its neighbors.
agreed about using new construction pics though...that's ridiculous.
