Kick off your weekend with candles and champagne at 284 Grand View. This Noe Fixer has two bedrooms, one bath and a magical garden just begging for some love from an architect, contractor or seasoned handy person. You might even be able to start from scratch with the RH2 lot.
284 Grand View has a brand new price– $649,950. This is a true ‘sweat equity’ opportunity for someone with skill and vision. But don’t take my word for it– please come see it yourself! An open house schedule for 284 Grand View is posted at www.284GrandView.com.
The first showing at the new price will be TONIGHT, April 22 from 5-7. My listing partner Gary Snow and I will be there early with armloads of candles and champagne. Even if you’re not in the market for a home, I would still love to see you! So please come by. Who knows? Maybe you know-somebody-who-knows-somebody who’s been looking forever for that ‘just-right’ next project. . . . cross streets are 22nd/23rd.
So this post won’t seem totally self-serving, here are two other properties I think are interesting and worth considering:
330 Banks– This single family home is a little one-bedroom foreclosure on a great block of Bernal. It’s another perfect project for a contractor or architect who’s ready to ‘think out of the box,’ but can’t afford Grand View’s price point. The price on this one is $499,000 and it’s bank-owned. It’s been on the market for 60 days now, and it’s likely the lender/owner will begin a series of price reductions soon. I wouldn’t hesitate to tender a low-ball offer.
330 Banks basically needs to be torn apart inside, then put back together, but I see potential for opening up the entire space and going for the loft-look. Bernal is the kind of neighborhood that draws creatives and the home is unlikely to ever be large enough for a family. But it’s an ideal spot for singles or young couples who love wide open living spaces, but want to be in a friendly pedestrian neighborhood would probably love something like this.
1155 Tennessee. When people ask me about the Dogpatch neighborhood, they are basically asking about four square blocks with cute victorians on tree-lined streets, The rest of the area is newer loft buildings and light industrial.1155 Tennessee is on one of the cute blocks. Victorian condo flat. Three-unit buidling. 2BR/2BA. 1542 square feet. No parking, but if memory serves, street parking is a no-brainer in this neighborhood. The home has been on the market for less than 24 hours, so I don’t know if it’s a top, middle or bottom unit, but I’d lay odds its on the lowest floor because it has a little deck in the back. List price is $699,000. I predict this home will be in escrow within two weeks, if not sooner. Call me if you want to be on it.
