This 1959 William Wurster in Presidio Heights, a midcentury modern at 3610 Washington that provides wonderful positive contrast in the tony neighborhood, sold for almost 50 percent over asking after landing on the market three weeks ago.
Initially asking for $7,500,000, the house, designed by the former UC Berkeley School of Architecture dean, sold for an impressive $11,300,000.
The four bedroom, four and a half bath Wurster features 5,650 square feet, a library, several fireplaces, and two floors.
In January, a five-bedroom, 4,000-square-foot Wurster at 17 San Andreas Way in exclusive St. Francis Wood sold for $3,750,000. One can only wonder what it would have sold for were it in the even more exclusive Presidio Heights. The mind boggles.
