Built in 1913, the house at 1723 10th Avenue features one envious amenity: another smaller house behind it, making it a rare SF real estate moment. The two single-family homes on the same 2,996-square-foot lot land on the market for $1.85 million.
First, the bigger abode up front: It comes with three bedrooms and one and one-quarter bath (“unsure of legality,” says the realtor’s listing regarding the fraction of a loo). The home features plenty of period details, like a stone fire place, stained-glass window trim, built-in cabinetry with stained-glass accents, and wood—lots of it. The floors. The ceilings. The walls. The cabinets. The staircase. The banister. Much of this space still bears its original woodwork.
Entering the backyard, a humble affair with a couple of manicured trees and a smattering of shrubbery, you’ll find the second home, 1725 10th Avenue, which comes with one bedroom and one bathroom.
While not nearly as grand as the front dwelling, the smaller house does benefit from being further away from the street. It also comes an enclosed porch area and heaps of natural light care of its many windows. A solid place for one or two sane people to live comfortably.
