Welcome to the High & the Low, a Curbed SF column chronicling the most and least expensive homes sold in San Francisco in the last seven days. (Sales information gathered from Zillow, Redfin, and Realtor.) Let's find see how far the needle swung this week.
This week's most affordable home sale was a $530,000 Hayes Valley condo in the Barcelona, a circa 1929 building at 150 Page Street with a spectacular baroque Mediterranean lobby. It is unfortunately illegal to live in the lobby itself, so the buyer in this case went upstairs to number 307, a 483-square-foot studio. The little place had been off the market since 1999, back when it was worth $145,000 ($208,000 today).
And for the high end of the scale (almost ten times higher this week) we travel to a different San Francisco valley, where a primo $4.95 million sale went down in Noe Valley over a five-bed, five-bath modernist home completed just this year. One we've looked at before, in fact.
The lot at 538 28th Street was previously a two-story 1910 home, bought for $622,000 in 2012 (yes, apparently you could buy a Noe Valley house for $622,000 in 2012) and speedily demolished in favor of this tiered affair with the glass facade, gabled roof, and extremely open floor plan. The new house sold for exactly the price listed back in March.
