Two Townhouses On Castor Canadensis

Two Townhouses On Castor Canadensis

We’re definitely digging the windows, decks, and views; and we know better than to judge a book by its cover (or in this case, a house by its listing photos); but for some reason the townhouses at 171 and 173 Beaver (“designed by Adele Naude Santos, Dean of the... Read More »

It’s All About The Kitchen

We’re In Love (Again)

We’re In Love (Again)

First and foremost, the pictures in the listing don’t do it justice. Not even close. That being said, do you remember what we wrote about 4381 26th Street in Noe? Well, 2645 Baker is that times two. And considering the price is roughly times two as well, it’s probably... Read More »

A Second Chance: 355 Bryant #102

We couldn’t help but notice that 355 Bryant #102 is back on the market. For those unfamiliar with it, this loft features a stunning modern staircase and true high-end finishes: The kitchen is by Varenna, the closet system are by Poliform and the bathroom vanities are by Rifra. All... Read More »

Raising The Bar On Green Building

Raising The Bar On Green Building

It’s a bit south (Santa Monica), but the house is still worth noting for two reasons: 1. it’s the first home in the country to be “given ‘platinum’ status in the U.S. Green Building Council’s influential LEED rating system (for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design),” and 2. it’s...
