Still at the top of the Curbed SF list as the "Most Insensitive Renovation of 2007" the John Hudson Thomas house on Santa Barbara Road in Berkeley is scheduled to go to auction on July 22 with a minimum bid of $2,249,500, less than half the original asking price of $5,000,000. Bidding rules? No, marketing plan.
