The big, modern house at 3407 Folsom Street in Bernal Heights has been an attention-grabber ever since it was first built back in 2011. It was designed by architect Gary Gee and sits just below the north entrance to the park on Bernal Hill with views that basically look right onto the hill itself. It was featured on the 2012 AIA home tour shortly after it finished construction. The home's original owners bought the house for $1.65 million, and now they have just sold it off-market for $3.15 million, making it a new record for the neighborhood. The previous record-setter was a $3 million house that sold just a few months ago.
3407 Folsom has four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms, but the home's outdoor features are what really make it stand out. A spiral staircase leads up to a very sweet roof deck, and there is a huge pool—yes, a pool—in the backyard. It even has a lone little palm tree standing over it. With its glass walls and modern, geometric angles, the entire place undoubtedly feels more Southern California than San Francisco, but obviously its new owners didn't think that was such a bad thing.
