2615 Union Garden
Purchased as a rundown two-unit property with “safety hazards including the presence of mold” atop a brick foundation for $2,555,000 seventeen months ago, a rebuilt 2615 Union Street is returning to the market as a 6,800 square foot single-family home atop a concrete foundation with a “family support suite with kitchen and separate entrance” on the ground floor, seeking $7,995,000 for the whole shebang.
The stagers are scrambling to finish, the preview party is this evening from 5:30 to 7:00, and photos (including more of the Walter Hood designed rear garden featuring an “artful wood-burning pizza oven”) should be coming soon.
UPDATE: A plugged-in reader adds:

The house belonged to an older guy, who lived there alone. He owned this property and at least 3 others down the street (also run down, shingle duplexes). He suddenly died, and had no wife or children, so a distant family member inherited everything.

She kept the other properties, which are rented out, but sold this one because it was beyond repair.

    Please let this be the first of many future links to Redfin and may we banish the SFARMLS links forever.
    The two interior pics of this place look a little cheesy.

    I know this one. The house belonged to an older guy, who lived there alone. He owned this property and at least 3 others down the street (also run down, shingle duplexes). He suddenly died, and had no wife or children, so a distant family member inherited everything.

    Oh, so are wood-burning ovens only banned in commercial kitchens?

    Wood-burning ovens are only banned on the days that you would want to use them :-)

    I dunno – it seems a waste of space to have a dedicated lab specimen dissection room. They must be hoping a rich research physician from UCSF falls in love.
    What’s that? You say that photo’s of the kitchen?
    Oh.
    My bad.

    Interesting. I knew the guy. He used to pick on me when I was a child. Lived a sad lonely life. That’s what happens to bullies.
