A home sale to watch in the Inner Sunset

1522 9th Ave. is a wonderful original home in the Inner Sunset.  Offers are due 1/13/11, so it’s a little late to get in the game, but it sure will be interesting to see what happens.  Listed at $799,000, I expect this home to sell with multiple offers over asking.

1522 9th Ave. exterior

A two story, substantial home, built in 1909.  Four bedrooms-all on one level, one bath, a fireplace and box beamed ceilings in the dining room, two car garage parking.  And of course, a fabulous location in the Inner Sunset, convenient to public transit and all the great shops the area has to offer.

Here’s a quirky little thing about it.  A clinker brick fireplace in the garage!  How’d that get there?!

I know this house is way outside the range of most people, but I really liked 226 Edgewood, and here’s why.

Wooded Entry Experience

Fabulous location.  Really.  You don’t find many homes on the market near UCSF in Parnassus/Ashbury Heights.  That neighborhood, in Real Estate speak, actually covers a pretty large area.  The area where 226 Edgewood is, is a pretty small area that is accessed by two streets off Parnassus; Willard and Woodland.  It’s wooded, secluded and gorgeous up there.  Wonderful views, well located and close both Cole Valley and the Inner Sunset neighborhoods.  Bonus, the street is a brick paved street.

City view from the garden/back of the house

Here’s the scoop.  Three level, Craftsman inspired home (with some Frank Lloyd Wright details) set back from the street on nearly a quarter of an acre gated site.  Four bedrooms, four bathrooms, two car-car port, wooded lot with a stunning garden.  All levels of the home and the garden have a wonderful down town view.

All for only $3.5 million.  Now, I know that’s a lot of money.  But, I see a lot of houses and there are bunches of $3-4 million dollar homes out there.  Given all this house has and where it is-I can’t imagine a better deal for the money on the market now.
