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.
