There's a lot to love about Belgrave Avenue, the short double-dead-ended street at the top of Cole Valley: stellar views, no traffic, good-looking neighbors (the houses- no doubt the residents are equally handsome.) So it's no surprise that 25 Belgrave Avenue went pending yesterday within two days of being listed, and well over asking the asking price of $2,649,000 for the 4-bed, 3.5-bath house. Built in 1941 before WWII made home-building difficult, it's an early mid-century modern with classic, flat overhanging eaves and bands of windows- which must have seemed shocking on a block of stately period houses. Maybe by Campbell & Wong? The owners did plenty of work to freshen it before coming on the market, delivering a pristine house- which seems to be the way to go these days. Yes, we love the two-story solarium kitchen, too, but we also love this kind of success story. Kudos to all involved- especially the realtors. Their video for the property seems to have involved a helicopter. Plus if you know the architect let us know in the comments.
