For a brief, strange few hours between yesterday and today, a three-bedroom condo in Corona Heights looked to be the biggest sale of the year, pulling in a reported $25.25M for a lovely if not exactly Billionaires' Row-caliber home. If the number had been real, and not just a typo of doomsday-like proportions, it would have crowned the home's architect, former MIT architecture school dean Adèle Naudé Santos, as San Francisco's reigning starchitect. (Sorry, Norm!) Despite the, like, 1000 percent gain in apparent value, 171 Beaver Street would still have been $3M shy of the $28.25M this other, Italian Renaissance-type condo brought in 2012.
The Corona Heights home in fact sold for $2.525M, gaining a now rather underwhelming $75K over the initial ask. Presumably the buyer was unable to unload it before the typo was caught.
