The 4-bed, 3.5-bath house at 2940 Jackson St last sold in early 2007 for $2,647,500. Just a few years later, following a remodel, the house is back on the MLS. The 1894 Pac Heights property was designed by architect Ernest Coxhead, a leading Arts and Crafts guy, and according to the its website is "one of the few remaining" Coxhead houses after the 1906 fire and earthquake. There kitchen and bathrooms seem a bit stark to be able to claim the "timeless elegance and continuity to the thoughtful remodel," but maybe such is the fate of all kitchen remodels. Terraced yard, one-car parking, and a dramatically upped price of $3,395,000 — three years, a remodel, and a difference of $747,500.
