Location: 255 Magellan Avenue, Forest Hill
The skinny: With its 'awe-inspiring rotunda entry" and indoor fountain, this place must have knocked 'em out at some point in its past. Handsome brick gables and patinated copper trim, vintage iron work and high ceilings— and a serious price cut— sold it in about five weeks. Or maybe it was the peacock stained glass.

Location: 3626 Lyon Street, Marina
The skinny: We're wondering what the $2,000 price reduction was for. Lampshades? The c.1949 vaguely Mediterranean house underwent the usual rehab at some point in its recent past and closed exactly six months after being listed. It has an interesting location, facing Crissy Field just across Marina Boulevard tucked behind the old Exploratorium building.

Location: 2816 Broderick Street, Cow Hollow
The skinny: Very bright blue renovation of a c.1956, 3-bed, 3-bath,- 2-car garage which we think wll be totally gutted and re-made in the new owner's image. The garden's kind of a disaster, but the listing pictures scream "possibilities."
