Weekend Open House Report: Fancy Schmancy Edition

Location: 2739 Larkin Street, Russian Hill
Size: 3-bed, 2.75-bath; 2,596 square feet
Price: $2,699,000
Pitch: "HUGE $200K price reduction! One-of-a-kind home on coveted Russian Hill cul-de-sac! SINGLE FAMILY HOME on shared lot w/ another home-operate independently! Sweeping views of the GG Bridge & bay - think America's cup! Designed by George Hauser, this home offers modern ammenities & fabulous dramatic spaces. Steel, wood, glass & stone work together to create a masterpiece."
Our Take: This glassy penthouse has a wonky sales history. It sold in late 2010 for $2,695,000 and then was plopped right back on the market less than a year later and for $2,725,000. Then it sold in May of 2011 for $2,895,000 and was right back on the market in September for $2,895,000. Shoot forward a month and its price was reduced to $2,699,000. Our head's spinning.
Open House: Sunday, 2 to 4PM

Location: 849 Sanchez Street, Eureka Valley
Size: 3-bed, 3.5-bath; 2,781 square feet
Price: $3,300,000
Pitch: "Stunning Liberty Hill Contemporary View Home! 3 Bedrooms / 3.5 Baths. Beautifully renovated light-filled corner home which was designed to captiure the Eastern, Southern and Western Views. The house has unobstructed views of the Bay, hills and the valley."
Our Take: From an earlier Curbed SF post: "Built in 1938, just before its period-sibling the Aquatic Park bathhouse, it's one the few, and best, examples of the late-Art Deco variation that was internationally popular in the 1930's but never quite caught on here in San Francisco. Renovation reversed the plan, putting the master suite on the ground floor, plus opening up the kitchen to the view while retaining some period details and the walls of vintage glass block. It's an elegant house, not especially kid-friendly unless your kids wear tuxedos, with open, and un-blockable views of San Francisco."
Open House: Sunday, 1 to 3PM

Location: 2414 Webster Street, Pacific Heights
Size: 4-bed, 3.5-bath; 2,955 square feet
Price: $2,897,000
Pitch: "This stylish Victorian home has been extensively remodeled throughout. The main floor of this beautiful home has gracious proportions and wonderful flow, featuring a formal living room and dining room, powder room, as well as a second family room off of the kitchen. The chic eat-in kitchen boasts abundant storage, marble counters, custom built-in cabinetry and opens to a lovely Ipe deck - perfect for entertaining. The upstairs has 4 bedrooms (Master is ensuite) and two baths. There is an extensive attic space that has expansion potential (the foundation was upgraded to accommodate an addition to the upper level). The lower level has a large family room, full bath, a mud room, laundry, and interior access from garage"
Our Take: We feel like this Victorian's interiors are an excellent example of blending Victorian architecture and charm with modern day amenities and style. Truly a stunner.
