Over in Glen Park, near the border of Noe Valley, you will find many single-family homes. Most of them glorious, all of them pricey. And this gem at 278 Randall, complete with its own backyard cottage, is no exception.
The circa 1926 home at 818 Monterey is something of a local celebrity. Not only does it boast a neon address sign and a cool blue and violet facade, its art deco iron work and zigzag tiling lend this renovated jewel loads of unabashed whimsy.
At the tail end of the midcentury aesthetic is this untouched midcentury house at 60 Laidley. It is nothing short of astounding. Also rare, insofar as the San Francisco market goes, is how it’s come away unscathed over the years.
Time again for the Under $700K Club, the inflation-adjusted version of our old Under $500K club. Here we showcase the few and the proud San Francisco homes that have the courage to sell at a mere $700,000 or less (or at least open that low).
A refreshing break from the Victorian and midcentury so popular in the city, this 1971 shingled contemporary gem, gorgeously leaning on the Glen Park hill, is the perfect family home and/or party palace.
Were the current housing market and interior renovation trend wrapped up into one house, Glen Park’s 22 Harper might be it. This Victorian has had its insides stripped down and rebuilt in the manner to which we’re accustomed to seeing these days.
Urban design critic John King is a Bay Area treasure. From deriding the new LinkedIn building in Yerba Buena to tipping his hat to 145 Natoma his views on San Francisco design are as anticipated and polarizing as that of food critic Michael Bauer.
Coming in a just under the wire, this Spanish/Mediterranean cottage in Sunnyside (Glen Park's offshoot neighborhood) charms to the tune of $699,000. Billed by in the ad as the "perfect starter home," it would also make a great life-long home.
Purchased in 2014 for $1.295M, flipped, and now $3.7M (asking, anyway), 300 Sussex's major overhaul is an antiseptic standout in Glen Park. The four bedroom, 3.5-bathroom home is drenched in natural light due to the many, many oversized windows.
