Shorter Still For The Tall McSweeney Home On Santa Paula Avenue

250 Santa Paula Avenue

The Angus McSweeney designed home at 250 Santa Paula Avenue was purchased for $910,000 in 2003 having sat empty for 25 years. Following a major renovation and expansion, the St. Francis Wood property returned to the market in 2008 listed for $2,995,000 but failed to sell.

Relisted last year as a short sale for $2,399,000, the property was in contract but failed to close. And now, 250 Santa Paula Avenue is back on the market and listed for $2,100,000.

While McSweeney would likely have still recognized his house's Santa Paula façade above, we're not so sure about the unexpected expanded rear below:

This is across the street from the $5M 299 Santa Paula.

This is a very odd expansion of the old house. The expansion is all below the original house, and most of it quite dark. Saw it a few years ago and felt that it lacked coherence.
