1071 Vallejo Street: On Russian Hill, on the market 298 days, and finally price-chopped ten percent from $6.5M down to $5.85M. A five- bedroom 4.5 no-surface-left-untouched "Pueblo" style stucco house from about 1912, which sadly, has had much of it's quirky personality sandblasted and botox-ed out. Still, quite grand. No elevator. but then one can never do too much cardio. Part of a group of houses designed for Norman Livermore by architect Charles Whittlesey, who is better known in Southern California and for his railroad stations and hotels.
And across the street from the luxe mid-century 1059 Vallejo which sold earlier this year for an undisclosed price in about ten minutes.
