A sprawling 4-bed, 4-bath Spanish Mediterranean-style home at 196 Avila Street just hit the market asking $3.8 million for 3,231 square feet of living space. The house sold a little less than a year ago for $2.4 million, but has since undergone a renovation and expansion. The kitchens and bathrooms are all new, as is the outdoor landscaping and fancy front door, but details such as vaulted beam ceilings and a period mantle over the living room fireplace remain. A tiled center patio includes a curving spiral staircase that leads to a roof deck with peeks out to the Golden Gate and the Palace of Fine Arts.
