Listed for: $4.5M
Size: 5-bed, 3-bath, 3,580-square-foot single-family home
Location: 2829 Divisadero St, Cow Hollow
The skinny: Design-wise, this home hailing from 1904 is a bit of a wallflower, which can be a good thing for owners who have their own agenda. After 2829 Divisadero landed on the market in late October seeking $4.5 million, it went into contract in just one week for $1.1 million more than the asking price. We've got to wonder if that Crayola-hued playroom in the attic is going to stay.
Listed for: $3.25M
Size: 4-bed, 3-bath single-family home
Location: 1660 North Point St, the Marina
The skinny: Once upon a time, this colorful abode (which cannot seem to pick its favorite spot along the salmon-mauve spectrum) was the master's thesis project of architect Paul Ryan, who worked on St. Mary's Cathedral with Pier Luigi Nervi and Pietro Belluschi. The home makes studious use of inlaid-wood floors and archways, and enjoys the kind of relationship with floral wallpaper that you could charitably call historical.
Listed for: $2.595M
Size: 2-bed, 2-bath, 1,772-square-foot condo
Location: 325 China Basin St, #606, Mission Bay
The skinny: This two-bedroom condo originally listed in July for $2.595 million, and then actually raised its price to $2.995 million three weeks later. That strategy appears to have worked, since the sale went through at that price. It has a "flexible" floor plan, which is perhaps meant to compensate for the not-so-generously sized kitchen.
