Listed for: $5M
Size: 5-bed, 4.5-bath, 3,863-square-foot single-family home
Location: 41 Cumberland St, Mission Dolores
The skinny: Whether or not $4.995 million is a record for Mission Dolores, it's a pretty huge price. And it went fast: This trilevel Marina-style abode was on the market for all of eight days before going into contract. Last sold in 2010 for $3.15 million after a pretty extensive renovation, the house features a deck that's an outdoor extension of the living room and all the usual gleaming fixtures and finishes. We like the questions posed by the signage-style art outside the bathroom, whose refrain ends with, "Over Eager/Under Valued, Under Whelmed/Over Priced."
Listed for: $4.7M
Size: 3-bed, 3.5-bath, 3,426-square-foot single-family home
Location: 2837 Greenwich St, Cow Hollow
The skinny: After several false starts and pricechops, this recently built home finally managed to find a buyer, who paid a full $1.145 million less than the original ask of $5.495 million from April. Completed in 2005, the house has bamboo floors, three decks, a roof deck with bay views, and a Zen garden. No one was willing to pony up for the entirety of the reduced ask, $4.7 million, even with a brokerbabble plug for schematics to convert to four bedrooms.
Listed for: $4.195M
Size: 5-bed, 3.25-bath, 4,692-square-foot single-family home
Location: 2206 Lake St, Lake
The skinny: We were charmed by this vintage wallpaper catalog when it listed in August after not seeing the market—or a solid color unbroken by florals or paisley—for more than 60 years. Despite its obvious need for some TLC and an extremely sad kitchen, the 1911 home rather daringly listed for the neighborhood median of $4.195 million. We're glad to see it find a buyer, and hopeful that the new owners preserve the wood beam ceilings and paneling, and maybe that awesome red-patterned room, too, please? (The random sink can go, though.)
