This sunny yellow, Tudor-style home sits at 2529 Union St., which puts it a few blocks from the action of the Union and Chestnut Street business districts. There are charming details throughout the home (beefy molding, a barrel-vaulted ceiling, a curving staircase), but perhaps the star of the place is at the top: A modern, wood-paneled penthouse that has stellar views and a deck. From here, you can get a a look at a watery landscape that includes bay and Alcatraz vistas. Currently, it's used as a home office, but with scenes like this, could anyone actually get work done here? Rounding out the picture in the three-bedroom, three-bathroom house: a nicely done kitchen, a sweet garden, and a sunken living room/dining room. The price for all this is $4.975 million.
Records show that the house last sold in August, 2014. Looking at the photos from the house at that time, you can see that, apparently, not much has changed—save for the removal of an animal print stair runner and new furniture. What is notably different is the price: Just 18 months ago, it closed at $4.5 million.
