Update: The Outer Sunset home bearing a paint job a la Piet Mondrian’s most famous work sold over asking, netting $2,050,000.
That’s $555,000 over the original ask of $1.495 million. No word if the new owner will keep the exterior paint job.
Blue, red, and yellow punctuate a facade made up of horizontal and vertical black lines against a white canvas, akin to Composition with Red Blue and Yellow, the grid-based painting for which Mondrian is best known. The artist’s color-blocking style inspired everything from a 1965 Yves Saint Laurent Mondrian dress collection to a 2016 cake at SFMOMA to this otherwise nondescript abode in the Outer Sunset, which has kept its look going for 20 years.
Featuring two beds, one bath, and two stories, the house is located across the street from the beach. The living room comes with a picture window that frames the Pacific nicely, giving the home’s front a run for its money. The backyard has also been recently landscaped to offer a more contemporary vibe.
Word to fans of the residence: While many San Franciscans adore whimsy, there’s no requirement that the future owner need maintain its exterior.
