Today the heat is supposed to reach its zenith insofar as this most recent heat wave goes. (And, yes, anything above 80 degrees in the city is considered a blistering heat wave.) Instead of standing in front of an open freezer door begging for mercy, why not take a look at these rare San Francisco homes that come with pools.
Save for our residential towers, a pool is a rare sight in San Francisco real estate. Now and then, however, we’re lucky enough to come across a few. Not sure how often one would ever need a pool in a city as typically glacial as SF, but on a day like today, it makes perfect sense.
↑ 466 Hill - Eureka Valley
This recently remodeled five-bed, three-and-a-half-bath Victorian home high atop Eureka Valley comes with a heated salt water pool on its renovated deck. Not too shabby. Asking is $2,790,000.
↑ 11 San Jacinto Way - St. Francis Wood
Over in one of the city’s toniest neighborhoods, one will find many a manse with a pool. Take, for example, this four-bed, four-and-a-half-bath, 6,383-square-foot stunner built in 1982, which comes with a pool, jacuzzi, and cabanas. Asking is $6,800,000.
↑ 1745 20th Street - Potrero Hill
Built in 1875 by dairy farmer Charles Dow, this Victorian in Potrero Hill was purchased in 1985 by Italian designer Larry Masnada (designer to such stars as Mel Brooks, Diane Sawyer, and Frank Sinatra) who transformed the stately home into the gem it is today. Among the new additions is the backyard pool that played host to many a fabulous party. According to Redfin, the house sold for $3 million.
↑ 1335 Stanyan - Clarendon Heights
Designed in 1985 by architect Lun Chan, this Inner Sunset home comes with five beds, three baths, and 3,877 square foot. What’s more, it features an indoor pool, perfect for the neighborhood’s chronically foggy weather. It sold in 2013 for an undisclosed amount.
