¡Ay, Caramba! Nos Gusta Over On El Camino Del Mar
Purchased for $5,500,000 in early 2008 and then remodeled by Ken Fulk in 2009, the Spanish-Mediterranean Sea Cliff home at 738 El Camino Del Mar Avenue has just returned to the market listed for $6,995,000.
Tax records suggest 738 was built as a 4,308 square foot four-bedroom in 1927, but it appears to have since been remodeled as a three. And while there might not be any bridge views today, we'll be lounging by one of the three fireplaces waiting for it to clear.
Feel free to grab a bottle from the wine cellar and meet us upstairs. It's good to be a VC.

Ooooh! I LOVE Friday RE Porn and this is pretty damn hot.

The stager sure didn't try to decorate it as a Spanish-Mediterranean or Spanish Colonial.
But I agree, this is first-class real estate pr0n.

^ I really don't think this is staged. It looks too tailored to the house.

I liked the Pincus/not Pincus house better than this - Fulk must be in his pastel period

seen many really high end homes in SF, and this one looks pretty darn nice -- congrats

Probably fleeing the city because its too expensive.
This home is spectacular. The driveway is in the read and descends upon China Beach it looks like. Should sell quickly.
Malin and crew after being quiet for a while there are really coming on strong with a few new / solid listings.
That doesn't look staged at all; looks like a nice job Fulk and his team.

Sweet. If money was no object I would live here.

Yeah, you can see Ken Fulk staging at 2980 Vallejo which also just came on the market today. It's not quite as porny, but the block is totally drool worthy.
BTW, is it sad that I'm starting to recognize pieces of staged furniture in various listings?

from the 99%: too much money and not enough wow (except for the view). Reminds me of bad hotels and restaurants in rural Spain.

My oh my I love that view!

Breathtaking view, and overall it looks like a pretty sweet place. The interior feels a little gaudy; but I'm assuming if you can afford to buy a place like this you've got the scratch to renovate and re-decorate.

More competition out in those parts with both 800 and 520 El Camino Del Mar also on the market at $7M each. Interesting to see so much inventory in this area. Maybe they are concerned with whatever Jack Dorsey is going to be building. Odd there are not more pics of 800 ECD and the lot is sort of small given the price / ask.

Speaking of 520, In Escrow in 6 days.
