Listed for: $3.75M
Size: 4-bed, 3.5-bath, 2,900-square-foot single-family home
Location: 1909 Vallejo St, Pacific Heights
The skinny: This 1906 Edwardian ticks all the right boxes (soaring ceilings, designery finishes, and at least partial Bay views) and some of the wrong (such as a highly questionable relationship with lavender), perhaps explaining why it went for $125,000 under ask.
Listed for: $3.45M
Size: 4-bed, 3.5-bath, 2,481-square-foot townhouse
Location: 1269 Lombard St, Unit A, Russian Hill
The skinny: On the outside, this new-construction townhouse underwhelms the senses, but inside, all three levels come with a view, plus a clear shot to the Golden Gate Bridge. The property has been on the market since January, a petty misfortune that the floor-to-ceiling wine rack is quickly helping us forget.
Listed for: $2.998M
Size: 3-bed, 2.5-bath, 2,613-square-foot condo
Location: 1980 Grant Ave #7, Telegraph Hill
The skinny: Even though it came in third, this sunny condo was the only sale to go over ask. A sign that sellers have been overconfident lately? Or just that the biggest spenders decamped to points more luxurious for the holiday. Since its last sale in 2010 for $2.295M, the property jumped nearly $1M, thanks to a pitch-perfect kitchen reno and a sweet terrace out back.
