Why Can't This Stunning Buena Vista Home Ever Find a Buyer?

New, 9 comments

The five-bedroom home at 908 Ashbury Street is absolutely gorgeous. However, every time it goes up for sale—something it has done three times since 2007—the house struggles to find a buyer, chopping its price at least once. This time around is no exception. The Edwardian came on the market in late February asking $3.995 million. Less than three weeks later, the price has been slashed by $400,000 down to $3.595 million. That's still a fair bit more than its 2010 sale price of $2.75 million, but some of the floors (most notably the once-dark top floor) have undergone renovations since then.

It's hard to figure out exactly what is wrong with this home and why it's had such a tough time over the past few years. There is a period fireplace, a formal dining room, and a legal in-law apartment on the lower level. The backyard is green and vibrant, with both a deck and a small fishpond. The only downside that we can find is the parking situation. There is only a one-car garage with room for additional parking in the driveway.
