There are parts of 1148 Dolores that feel dated — Pepto pink bathrooms, for instance. But it's Noe Valley, and if you're going to drop $2,999,000 on a house, you may as well finish that last mile and redo some fixtures. The rest of the 5-bed, 3.5-bath mansion's worth a look, but mainly, there's something charming about the classical garden and the exterior's almost defiantly Mediterranean outlook on life. "Of special note," reads the listing, "Italian craftsmen were brought over to complete the house at the time of its construction."
