At the end of July, a beautifully renovated Eureka Valley Edwardian came onto the market with very big hopes. Although the house has four bedrooms and a sought-after location, it isn't exactly one of the sprawling, blinged out swankfests of the multi-million dollar flips that dot its neighborhood. Its fourth bedroom really feels more like a finished basement and is currently set up as a media room, and there is only one bathroom amongst the three bedrooms on the top floor. There's also only one parking spot. The home originally set a big $2.895 million asking price, but fairly quickly took a big drop down to $2.3 million.
Despite its shortcomings, the Edwardian is really quite stunning. Period details like built-ins with leaded glass windows and wainscoting are paired with upgrades like an elegantly modern kitchen. A white staircase and fireplace with a big wooden mantle serve as feature points. The small backyard is built around a little fire pit, and landings overlooking the yard offer room to grill.
