Magical Russian Hill Wonderland Up For Grabs (Plus, Real World San Francisco House As Your Neighbor)

New, 10 comments

It's not everyday we see properties like this in San Francisco. Two lush parcels are up for grabs, one of which features a Willis Polk-designed brown shingle 5-bedroom house (lot 17, aka 841 Chestnut Street). The other is s 1-bed cottage with a sauna and sunken spa. This mysterious wonderland is full of foliage, mature redwoods, level lawns, and spans the width of the entire block from Lombard to Chestnut. Asking price? A cool $6,900,000. The listing tells us that the seller has obtained a site permit to renovate and expand the "now dilapidated main house" to approximately 4,360 square feet and to add a 2-car garage with an elevator on Chestnut Street. Fun fact: Across the street is 949 Lombard, the former stomping grounds of MTV's The Real World: San Francisco.
