1922 abode takes a modern turn

From the outside, the house at 558 27st Avenue looks unremarkable, integrating with the rows of 1920s stucco homes. But once inside, you will find a high-end remodel, similar to the ones you see in Noe Valley.

The interiors as described in the listing are rife with brokerbabble. To wit: “exquisite design,” “entertainer’s paradise,” and “the complete remodel was done by the hands of a perfectionist.” And, well, they’re not wrong. While homes like this can be found in tonier San Francisco neighborhoods, it’s rare to see such a modern reimagining in the Richmond District.

The home's interior has been renovated as a sleek space boasting a remodeled kitchen, dining room, two bedrooms, two baths, and a living room on the upper level. The lower level comes with two bedrooms, one bath, and an additional family room. A big leap from its humble two-bed, one-bath beginnings.

New details inside this circa-1922 house include pretty much everything. A glass-enclosed stairwell, suspended pendant lights illuminating an already bright space, an atrium style custom skylight, and a manicured yard.

The only thing not surprising is the cost. Asking is $1,695,000.
