Channeling a bit of San Diego, Santa Barbara and SF company – we arein San Francisco after all – this notable property above Dolores Park delights and would let each of the three roommates from the 1980s sitcom a place of their own and then some.
So, who doesn’t want a house overlooking Dolores Park, but do you have $5.2
million to spare? Would an extra lot help interest you as well? This is the type of question you can consider when looking at 740 Church St. It’s the well-situated mansion/casa/hacienda/mission/Three’s Company backdrop that sits above the park at Cumberland Street you must have seen before. Today was its first broker open house. Agents from all over – yes, even from the north side – came to see. The place has been modernized and designed with fun, luxury and practicality as well.
Starting top down, you will first come across the master suite – or should I say level – which resembles a mix somewhere in between the Tudor hall and a loft wiith sweeping views and light coming in from all sides. Surprisingly, the closet isn’t quite as big as you expect – same holds true for the bath too. And, you’ll notice there’s not a single bathtub in the entire house. But, you feel cozy and magnificent at once.
On the main entry level there are various public and private spaces. Two bedrooms – both walking out into the courtyard – are augmented by a sexy, sleek kitchen, formal dining room and library/living area fixing church. The interior courtyard with fountain and landscaping complete the other side of the floor.
The downstairs level is where the multi generational trend was most at hand. There are three distinct bedrooms and two distinct quarters. One quarter has two bedrooms – each with its own bath– a minibar and kitchenette, a dining area, and access to the courtyard as well as another exterior door. The other quarters is simpler with a bedroom and bathroom and small sitting area.
Today’s warm, breezy weather made the perfect backdrop to the interior courtyard, or, was it the trickling fountain, or the flowering trees that added the extra tough the location and design couldn’t? In case you don’t like it or need a little more income in your life, an extra lot adjacent to the property is included in the sale. And its RM-1 zoning allows a little more flexibility than you expect as the residential mixed use moniker implies. The home is a trust sale and has been closed to the public. With good reason, its location immaculate staging, and sheer attractiveness would be inviting to anyone.
Listed at $5.2 million with McGuire, it’ll be interesting to see where this one ends up. Does anyone know Facebook employee cash to burn? Send ’em my way.
