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.

The house is listed as pending as of 12/30/10

Second January 2011 update:

The house closed escrow on 1/13/11 for $2,900,000.  Someone got a very good deal for that house, neighborhood and view!

Frank Lloyd Wright designed house for sale-in Los Banos

Architecturally significant home for sale-Curbed photo

The town, not the bathroom.

This Frank Lloyd Wright designed house is for sale in Los Banos, CA.  The house was designed and built for Buck and Harriet Fawcett-I find it fascinating that someone in their 30’s could afford and have built this stunning home on 80 acres.

I think I could consider living in a remote location to get a house like this.  On and off the market for a few years, the house is still available for nearly $2 million.  Unfortunately, Frank Lloyd Wright did not live to see the completion of the home.
