Just seven days on the MLS but over 100 years on Earth has 5 Downey St been. Built in 1904, the 3-bed, 3.5-bath, 3,196 sq. ft. home has been thoroughly modernized for today's taste for convenience, open floor plans, and chef-pleasing kitchens. The upstairs with its peaked roof captures the most charm of such architecture, and fortunately the master suite (with envy-worthy closet) is nestled up there. Downstairs, find guest/au pair room, media room, and access to deck and yard. All this, plus two car parking in the Haight? Yes, you're right: It won't come cheaply. Purchased in 2001 for $640K and selling twice over (for progressively higher prices) before its current stint on the MLS, today's asking price is a very steep $2,100,000.
