You Save: $250,000
The last time Curbed visited 469 Clipper in Noe Valley, we were (mostly the commenters, really) weighing in the pros and cons of the preliminary plans for what was then a fixer-upper for $979,000. Shoot forward to today and it looks like a simpler version of the rather drastic plans has not only been completed, but plopped on the market and already has a price reduction of $250,000. It's a 3-bed, 3.5-bath, 1,983 square foot home for $2,049,000 in one of San Francisco's most sough-after neighborhoods. Should have sold quick, right? Not so fast. The space planning is all wrong. Note the plethora of "unique nooks" at nearly every turn. Really, readers... how many "home offices" does one house need? And take a look at that sad master bathroom. How unappealing does that tub look? It's shoved in a windowless corner. And then there's the issue of the detached 2-car garage. See those stairs leading up to your front door? Imagine hauling your groceries (in the rain for added agony) up those stairs and into your home, and then through the living and dining rooms to the kitchen that's conveniently located at the back of the house. We expect another chop.
