We were quite smitten when we stumbled upon the listing for 114 Shakespeare; before we gush, let's get the "meh" out of the way: it's far. I mean, you could walk to Daly City from this house. That said, what a house! The amazing thing is that you can score this cottage on a double lot in San Francisco for $459,000. And it's got two bedrooms. Two! The main living area has an open floorplan that features a wood burning stove and a beamed ceiling. There's also an enclosed sun porch that offers up views of Mount Diablo and the bay. A large skylight provides ample natural light in the kitchen. The home also has a "bonus room," no word on whether or not that concrete floor has radiant heat. The mighty large garage could easily fit three cars. Easily. Since the home's on a double lot, you better believe it's surrounded by lush gardens and even a greenhouse- perfect for your temperamental orchids. The last reported sale was in 1998 for $192,500. Think this puppy will sell for $459,000? Or should we expect some choppage?
