The houses that line the streets of Diamond Heights are some of San Francisco's best examples of midcentury architecture and design. The home at 7 Cameo Way is no exception. This low-slung, three-bedroom has wood-paneled ceilings, built-in shelving, and a classic California backyard that makes us crave a martini. It has been updated and renovated, but the new additions mesh nicely with the midcentury style. The ceilings in the main room are surprisingly high, and light pours in through floor-to-ceiling glass doors and high-set windows on one side of the big space. The long, sleek kitchen is modern but its finishings call to mind the simple style of an earlier age.
Most of the upgrades appear to date from before 2007, when the home last sold for $1.55 million. It is now asking just $1.995 million, not a huge jump given the soaring real estate market, but we guess that it has a strong chance of selling for way over that ask.
