Sold for $550,000 in 2003, and now a short sale at $469,000, it's a two-bedroom/one-bath house with an un-permitted two-bedroom/1-bath apartment, presumably behind the garage. Or including the garage. We're not sure. As a de facto two-unit building, one has to wonder about the unmentioned tenant's rights. Convenient to freeways and so far south it might as well be in San Bruno but we're guessing Outer Mission. This is about as far from shelter magazine-style minimalism we care to get. Although we're mad for the garage door.
