When Unit #201 at Russian Hill's 1070 Green Street sold for $1.2 million back in 2011, it was filled with crown molding, parquetry flooring, and bay views. The views are still there, but everything else has changed thanks to a down-to-the-studs makeover from architect Michael Hennessey and Johnstone McAuliffe Construction. Many of San Francisco's newly-renovated properties have a color palette that doesn't stray too far from white, but this has to be the whitest makeover we've ever seen. The kitchen is bizarrely ghostly, and even the staging furniture is completely colorless.
The bathroom? It's all white. The walls get creative with some white oak panels, but the floors are white Italian porcelain. This definitely isn't a kid-friendly renovation. The price has jumped up to $2.9 million, which will get the buyer two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and one parking spot.
