This one won't break 800/ft due to the somewhat dated finishes IMO, noe spenders want modern

This is a family house, in a family 'hood, and for a family paying $3.15 million, they won't get much of a yard.
It's all fun and games until little Timmy plays soccer, falls down the stairwell and breaks his collarbone.

No chopped pillows? That's got to mean something!

Wait...wasn't this property on the market for about 70 days with no results at $3.2mm? I thought there was some required waiting period per MLS rules before it could be relisted as "zero days" at essentially the same price. At any rate, unlike the Noe core, the hills of SW Noe are chock full of somewhat stagnant inventory...expect this one to move slowly and at a lower price.

@Data Dude. Not sure if this is a "family house" -- did you not see the Wet Bar upstairs by the bedrooms?

zero curb appeal.

These are some old photos. I would guess most are taken in July of '10. I bet they have been waiting for a hot,hot,hot market to sell back into. They found one, so we will see what happens.

It's like the SF version of a McMansion. Too big, too bland
Posted by: curmudgeon at June 21, 2012 4:28 PM
the inside is ok though, as someone already noted, McMansiony in places.
But the outside? Really? looks like that development in forest hills addition

That development... in forest hills addition.
You mean forest hill extension by chance?

I do like the sauna. And the stairwell.

Victor C - Wet bars are found in family houses. I grew up in a house with a wet bar. Haven't seen the photos so not sure if it also includes a mini-fridge but with the kitchen downstairs it would be a nice feature to have a small fridge up there.

Unplugged - I hate the stairwell. Or at least the way the basemoulding steps up the stairwell. That just seems wrong and very very fussy. (banister is fine)
Posted by: curmudgeon at June 22, 2012 9:49 AM
True, the basemolding is lame, but it can be easily fixed. The bannister is nice, and the luxury of taking up that much square footage with a wraparound stair case is always a plus for me.

@ tripp: yes, by chance, that is what I mean!
