The little brick house at 2974 Pacific Street may be just an 875-square foot one-bedroom, but those are some pretty special square feet. The structure was designed by famed architect Julia Morgan back in 1917 as a garage and chauffeur's quarters for the Billionaires' Row Dutch Colonial that sits behind it (which is now owned by Zynga founder Mark Pincus). Despite its diminutive size, the carriage house features on walking tours of Pacific Heights architecture and includes high ceilings and period details. After listing for $3.5 million in late May, the property sold for $3.7 million on Monday, putting its final price at $4,228 per square foot.
Unfortunately, there are no interior photos of the house available, but given its impeccable exterior and colorful back gardens, we imagine it is lovely. According to the brokerbabble, there are built-in bookshelves, a big walk-in closet, and an office nook off the living room. The three-car garage is also operational, meaning that there is a whole lot of parking for a one-bedroom home.
The carriage house is undoubtedly special and unlike anything else in San Francisco. As we pointed out when the property listed, its price made it both the most expensive one-bedroom in San Francisco and by far the cheapest property anywhere near Billionaires' Row. On the one hand, the new buyers will be coming home to servants' quarters, but on the other, they will be living in a multimillion dollar Julia Morgan-designed house just off of Billionaires' Row.
