What's in Contract and Asking Over $5M? More Importantly, Will These Abodes Sell For More Than They Asked?

Quite a few of San Francisco's priciest pieces of real estate (both residential and multi-unit buildings) are currently in contract. That means that they're for sale and have accepted an offer and are going through a process that most likely will result in a sale. Let's explore some of the most expensive ones.

5) 740 Church Street, Eureka Valley/Dolores Heights
Asking price: $5,250,000
Size: 6-bed, 6-bath, unlisted square footage
The skinny: Unless you live under a rock you know that every piece of residential property in Eureka Valley or Dolores Heights (can we please settle on a name for this 'hood already?) has sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars more than asking, sometimes even double the asking price. This prime piece of real estate tail sits right on the corner of Church and Cumberland streets and is directly across from Dolores Park, one of the most popular and frequented parks by locals and visitors alike. It would be a safe bet to guess that it'll sell for more than $5.25M. Chime in with your thoughts in the comments. Property highlights include full-scale 2-year renovation that began in 2003 that "prepared the vintage domicile for the 21st century while maintaining its Old World craftsmanship," and an adjacent vacant 2,501 square foot lot on Cumberland. Take a look at our previous coverage here.

4) 765 Market Street, Unit 36F, Downtown
Asking price: $5,600,000
Size: 3-bed, 3.5-bath, 2,572-square-feet
Price per square foot: $2,177
The skinny: This is a perfectly fine and dandy condo at the Four Seasons residences. The majority of the abode is covered in a variety of beige and to say we're underwhelmed by the decor would be an understatement. But whatever, it's in contract so someone wants it. We should point out that "the designer furniture is not included in the sale of the unit but may be purchased separately." Monthly HOA dues are a completely reasonable $2,565.

3) 950 Lombard Street, Russian Hill
Asking price: $6,900,000
Size: 6-bed, 4.75-bath
The skinny: We've extensively covered this property before, which you can read here. It's a glorious piece of land that has two properties on it, one of which is a Willis Polk-designed home that is in need of a very serious renovation. Also on the property is a one bedroom cottage that has a sauna, spa and pool. This is easily one of our favorite pieces of property in San Francisco. It's got one of San Francisco's largest private gardens (.36 acre). The land spans the entire block from Lombard to Chestnut and has level lawns, redwoods, olive trees and Japanese maples.

2) 2860 Pierce Street, Cow Hollow
Asking price: $7,850,000
Size: Welp, technically this is a 5-unit building comprised of a 3-bedroom townhouse on Pierce Street and 4 pristine units entering on Union Street. We know this isn't a single-family home, but felt obligated to include it anyway because it's got less than 6 units. It's exquisite, inside and out. The townhouse is absolutely stunning and no surface has been left untouched, in a good way.

1) 2950 Pacific Avenue, Pacific Heights
Asking price: $16,500,000
Size: 7-bed, 6.5-bath, 11,500-square-feet
Price per square foot: $1,435
The skinny: We wrote about this Pacific Heights piece of pedigree when it first landed on the market 61 days ago. It quickly went pending. It was built and designed by Albert Farr in 1907 and the same family has occupied it up until now. It features extensive (understatement) millwork and plenty of windows to sit back and enjoy the many views of the Golden Gate Bridge and other iconic structures people in San Francisco like to stare at.
