We've been following the huge seven-bedroom manse at 22 22nd Avenue since it first hit the market back in July. Although it was undoubtedly in need of many updates after not changing hands in nearly 40 years, the house still boasted an old world charm with its ornate pillared front door, twisting staircase, and endless windows looking out into the yard. The house started out looking for $6.995 million, but began taking a series of major price chops once September hit and no buyer had been found. The house finally found a buyer this week, but the sale price was just $4.97 million, more than $2 million less than the initial ask.
Hopefully the new owners will be able to use some of the cash they saved on the purchase price to restore the big old home to what must have been its former glory. The place is surrounded by greenery—some of which will likely need to be trimmed back—and has a lovely back patio and easy access to the nearby Presidio. According to the listing, there are five parking spaces and three fireplaces that come with the home.
