Listed for: $6.9M
Size: 5-bed, 3.5-bath, 5,895-square-foot single-family home
Location: 3560 Baker St, Marina
The skinny: Designed by architect Sidney Colton back in 1929, this Mediterranean abode is packed with details like box-beam ceilings, carved fireplaces, decorative metalwork, and a chandelier worthy of Hogwarts. The mix of Cali on the outside, castle on the inside spent five weeks on the market before netting $200K over asking.

Size: 4-bed, 4.5-bath, 5,172-square-foot single-family home
Location: 17 25th Avenue North, Sea Cliff
The skinny: This very pretty 1920s home just off the shoreline of the Pacific went into contract only eight days after listing. It's got all the requisite views, a remodeled kitchen, lots of bay-window nooks, and brick-edged fireplaces. We're not in love with the carpet, but that's easy to remedy.

Size: 5-bed, 4.5-bath single-family home
Location: 90 Jersey St, Noe Valley
The skinny: Last sold in 2011 for $850K, this home has undergone a total transformation from a very livable two-bedroom to a five-bedroom swankfest. The buyers matched the asking price—which amounted to a nearly fivefold increase over the old sale price—and they did it fast: The property was under contract in a mere four days' time.
