Delightful Marina 3bd/2ba home offers elegance + comfort. Main level-Spacious living rm has fireplace. Elegant Formal Dining rm, modern eat-in kitchen, 2 br + 1ba w/ skylite. Sliding door from 1br to deck/garden. The deck has partial City + Bay views w/ a level, grassy garden. Lower level has a small bdrm, bathrm + an inviting family room. W/ D in garage.
Here’s what BB had to say about the house:
The Spacious living rm stuffed with couches that look made from the skins of stuffed animals makes the room smaller. Watch your step on the way to the yellow kitchen and to check out the plastic faux-vinyl shower curtains. What a bargain for up to $10K in staging fees. They even put a crappy shower curtain in the bathrm "with small bdrm + inviting family room W/D in garage." You mean like a garage conversion?
Recovering that 2003 equity just got harder as a result of "presentation."
Sold for $731,000 in 2003, and went pending in 2 weeks. Admittedly when Bubbie sent it in, it was still listed for sale.
It did sell quickly for more money than in 2003, but in eight years, it should have almost doubled. Therefore, we have confirmation that the Inner Sunset isn’t in the Real Bay Area. Should have bought something in the Marina!
Speaking of the Marina, since when is that a style of house as well as a (very expensive) neighborhood? That’s a new one for me.
See, you can learn something reading Burbed!
Also have a look at the level, grassy garden, because Redfin says the lot doesn’t have a size. Zillow says it’s 2500 sf. Looking at the satellite picture, that would mean a 25 x 100 foot lot.
Those walls look like they’re touching to me. Heck, those walls probably aren’t even holding the house up, because they’re leaning on the two neighbors’ houses. The only homes on this block that have actual load-bearing walls are the ones on each corner.
