Just nine and a half months ago, a Lower Pacific Heights house on Pine Street sold for $1.488 million. The facade had been stripped down from its Victorian glory and, although no photos of the interior can be found, a Redfin agent who viewed the property described it as a "total fixer, not a weekend project" that needed "new everything." In the time since, the home has received exactly that. The facade is the only element of the old house that remains, but the flippers restored it, adding back detailing and putting in a garage.
The interiors are fresh and bright, with radiant-heat oak floors and a kitchen complete with a marble island. Another salvaged element is a Craftsman staircase that was reconstructed from the original. Although very little Victorian remains, the rebuild is at least well executed. The four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath home is now back on the market for $3.6 million, a $2.112 million increase after the total transformation.
