Listed for: $10.95M
Size: 6-bed, 6.5-bath, 6,520-square-foot single-family home
Location: 2604 Pacific Ave, Pacific Heights
The skinny: Designed by Samuel Newsom and built in 1889, the dusky pink Queen Anne at 2604 Pacific listed in October for $10.95 million. It nabbed a slim $45K over asking for its six bedrooms, prim turret, and general mini-castle stylings. We love the filigreed railing on the stair and the tall, tall windows.
Listed for: $8.5M
Size: 5-bed, 4.5-bath, 4,825-square-foot single-family home
Location: 2519 Pierce St, Pacific Heights
The skinny: When this renovated Edwardian hit the market back in November, we were pretty underwhelmed by the staging and ended up just counting potted orchids (we got nine). The ceilings are high and the wood floors gleam, though we got to wondering whether it's as dark inside as it seems in the listing photos, despite a what look like a normal amount of windows. In response to the $8.5 million ask, prospective buyers perhaps also issued a collective meh, since the final price didn't clear $8 million.
Listed for: $6.495M
Size: 5-bed, 4.25-bath, 4,256-square-foot single-family home
Location: 2807 Clay St, Pacific Heights
The skinny: 2807 Clay began its life as a two-bed, one-bath Eastlake Victorian. After a neighborhood NIMBY battle, the owners got clearance to add a story to the home, bringing it up to the gargantuan height … of its neighbors. The home got totally remade on the inside—only its Victorian mask got preserved, behind a layer of dark paint—and landed back on the market asking a full $5.22 million more than its old sale price. A subsequent $500K price chop cut it down to its current (still somewhat fearsome) price.
