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 »

While le blog exuberance applauds the exterior, we’re quite impressed with what’s inside 2130 24th Street #B (at least based on the pictures). The South facing lower level condo is three bedrooms and two baths over 1,500 square feet; has a kitchen outfitted with “Bosch Appliances & Scavolini Cabinets”... 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...

Inside 2525 Webster

Inside 2525 Webster

When we first broke the news about 2525 Webster we accidentally wrote that it would hit the market for $7.2M, when in fact, we had actually heard $7.65M from a reliable source (or as “Gregg” noted, “The realtor’s bet is $7.65M”). And yet according to the MLS, it officially... Read More »

Two Hours We’ll Never See Again

Two Hours We’ll Never See Again

Okay, so it’s probably best not to mention just how long it took us to figure out that it’s a seven week (?) calendar sketched out on that damn wall in the listing for 188 South Park #5. (Or that it was only after we figured it out that... Read More »
