The Hinkel House Hits the Market

New, 4 comments
This beauty is the Hinkel House. A 6-bed, 4.5-bath, 5,950 square foot Victorian in Pacific Heights that was built in 1900. In 1977, the current owners "found her with a stucco facade, carved into 7 units." Over time, they rebuilt the facade to mimic its original design and slowly brought the house's interior architectural details back to what they looked like in their prime. Shoot forward to today, and there's a 3-level home up top and two legal units (with income) below. Today she hit the market with an asking price of $3,447,000. Let's talk interior highlights: there's five fireplaces. Five, people. The den, the living room, the dining room? they all have fireplaces. Goodness. There's also a more than one wet bar. Invite us over for drinks, yes? And there's a workshop on the premises. Although we do love and respect the exterior and floorplan of the place, we'd be doing you a disfavor if we didn't discuss the monstrosity that is the kitchen design. The black floor, the square black and red tile. What, exactly, is going on here? Then there's the bedroom with the black wall, stuffed animal with horns and what appears to be a giant branch casually laid out on the bedspread. Easy fixes, yes, but still odd. Also, all of the bathrooms are radically different from each other, yet none get it right. What say you, dear readers? A score? Is a PriceChop in order? Is this the home of your dreams? Let us know in the comments!
