This past May we covered 1157 Washington Street, the Modernist urban cottage on the edge of Chinatown, a charming '50s Chinese-American time capsule with great open views of the downtown skyline and the East Bay. The sophisticated little 3-bed, 2-bath house, built in 1954, closed last week for $900,000, $50,000 less than the asking price. It had been "pending" for a while, so presumably there were some contingencies to sort out. No word on whether the classic- and coveted- light fixtures were included, but the house has no parking or outdoor space. Check out the Smithsonian-ready kitchen in the gallery.
