228 Elsie in Bernal Heights was "meticulously" redesigned and rebuilt in 2011. It kept its Victorian facade and gutted the inside to bring it up to today's sleek and mouldingless standards. The 4-bed, 3-bath, 2,192-square-foot abode was listed mid-September of this year for a cool $1,350,000. The median listed home price for the Bernal Heights proper is $689,000, but the media listed price per square foot is $524. So while 228 Elsie was asking double what other homes in the 'hood were asking, it was only $92 per square foot more than the median. Shoot forward a few months and the property sold for asking. The chef's kitchen features walnut cabinetry and all the fancy and shiny stainless steel appliances you'd expect when you were paying more than a mill for a house. The rest of the home is packed with designer finishes and touches, like floating vanities and porcelain tiles. There's a 2-car garage and the home is in "close proximity to high tech bus route to Silicon Valley." Congrats to the lucky buyer!
