We do love our time capsules at Curbed SF, and here's one in Diamond Heights overlooking Glen Canyon that came on the market this week. Asking price on the 3-bed, 2-bath, 1963-vintage house is an even $1,000,000 and aside from a recent lick of flat white latex paint, not much has changed since JFK was assassinated. Let's go straight to the brokerbabble:Painstakingly cared for, the home is true to its mid century beginnings. The cabinetry throughout the kitchen and baths was there from day one and is ready for its new owner to embrace or subtly move toward a newer sensibility.That's a stretch, but the house did manage to avoid being updated over the past fifty-odd years, so at least you won't have to tear out someone's else's 80's French Provincial kitchen. The light fixtures are sweetly nostalgic, even if they lack the pedigree of this previously-covered time capsule in Nob Hill. Which sold under asking. Outside, it's very simple, almost austere, with a garage facing the street, board-and-batten siding and the entry down a wide landscaped side yard. No mention of "Eichler" in the listing (unlike so many other houses in the neighborhood) and the place is currently assessed at $109,243 for tax purposes- the annual tax bill is $1,181. Which you can expect to find hovering around $10,000 next year. City coffers applaud.
