Painted Gentlemen progress

 A few weeks ago, driving on Steiner Street, I saw that there was progress where the ‘Painted Gentlemen’ are proposed.  The Painted Gentlemen are the companions to the Painted Ladies famously pictured in San Francisco post cards across from Alamo Square.  The old buildings are gone and ready for development.

Then today when looking through Multiple Listings, I see that the three lots and the large home on the corner are all for sale.  They are entitled, meaning you can buy the lots and take over the plans and build them yourself.

FYI, the right to build, won’t come cheap.  The lots range in price from $1,250,000 to $1,500,000 and the house at 940 Grove is $3,000,000.

Architectural Drive by on Pacific

As I was driving on Steiner St last week on Tuesday Tour, I saw this home which I had never seen before.  It’s not on the market, but something about it spoke to me.  I made a quick left turn on Pacific, sat in front for a bit and went back to take these pictures.

Amongst all the Pacific Heights Mega mansions, this elegant small Victorian stands proud on a wide lot, set back prominently from the road.  Beautifully maintained.  Looks like it has stood the test of time well and in a stately manor.

It made me think about one of the reasons I get such a kick out of SF Real Estate.  Every once in awhile, a property stands out enough to make you take notice.  I plan on posting such properties here from time to time.  Enjoy.
