Listed for: $6.25M
Size: 5-bed, 5.5-bath single-family home
Location: 330 Locust St, Presidio Heights
The skinny: This big sunny house in Presidio Heights didn't spend long on the market. It came up in July asking $6.25M, and buyers snapped it up for $30K below asking. The interiors are expansive—a roomy daylit kitchen, skylights aplenty, and the usual moldings and hardwoods—though the exterior's not nearly as inviting. There's a fireplace, deck, a two-car garage, and a walk-in closet that puts most home offices to shame.

The skinny: For a while now this Stanley Saitowitz-sourced home has been a fixture on our map of the 25 most expensive homes for sale in San Francisco, and we thoroughly expected it to join today's update of the map. But it sold last week for $5.885M, which was somewhat of a slide from its 2012 ask of $6.98M, its revision downward last september to $5.885M, and even its re-revised list price in July of $5.5M. All that is frosted melts into air!

Location: 2529 Union St, Cow Hollow
Last purchased in October for $4.2M, this well-located Cow Hollow abode sold at asking but picked up a not-half-bad $400K gain over the earlier price. The place looks comfy enough, though the zebra-like stair carpet and the round-edged door give the place an off-kilter Flintstones kind of vibe. The back garden's effusive foliage helps with that, too (in a good way!).
