Friday is time for the High & the Low, a Curbed column chronicling the most and least expensive homes sold in San Francisco in the last seven days. Here’s this week’s pageant of extremes:
As the numbering would suggest, apartments 2801, 2803, and 2805 at 999 Green Street (the Eichler-developed Summit building) should be three entirely different condos.
But apparently the late owners scooped them all up and combined them into a single home in Russian Hill.
The result is a two-bed, three-bath abode with “two kitchens, formal and casual living rooms, two grand-scale walk in closets, [and] two marble entries” on the 28th floor.
The expanded condo features eccentric interiors by Peter J. Owens featuring a recurring motif of mirrored panels, including wall-to-wall mirrors in the walk-in closets and bathrooms to create never-ending tunnels of reflections.
Listed in January for $6.85 million, it sold this week for a very particular sum: $6,847,900.
The lowest of this week’s lower-end sales was a little studio on Leavenworth in an old yellow Edwardian building. Listed for $399,000 on the exact same day as the Summit home, it sold this week for $425,000.
But second-place 625 Divisadero #6 probably provides a more intriguing contrast, a NoPa studio nearly as eccentric as the Eichler home but working with a fraction of the space.
The almost telephone-like shape of the floor plan, gentle lavender color scheme, and borderline intimidating volume of cabinetry for the space are certainly odd, but also oddly appealing.
A buyer finally agreed this week, taking the place for $440,000, after it listed for $449,000 last July.
