Back in March, a totally rebuilt Noe Valley home landed on the market asking $4.995 million, almost four times the price it last sold for in 2012, when it had three bedrooms and a well-kept but by no means chic vibe. Shoot forward to 2015, and we're looking at a reborn five-bedroom swankfest with sleek everything, cavernous spaces, and a big dose of floor-to-ceiling glass, which does open up the views nicely.
