Get the advance on an exclusive new listing in San Francisco from Kevin K. Ho, Esq., Vanguard Properties

Built in 1887, this shotgun Victorian has seen history unfold around it. It’s painted pink so you can’t miss it – but you may miss this advance, pre-MLS purchase opportunity for this 2-unit, 1800 sq ft (approx.) home with garage, roof deck, backyard, income unit and expansion potential.

The upper unit has sweeping skylights, two bedrooms, one bath, in-unit laundry, and a spacious updated kitchen with stained-glass features, gas appliances, smart cabinetry, big island for family time – all overlooking a grassy backyard with swingset.

The lower unit is a one bedroom, one bat with kitchen income uni with approximately 800 sq ft.

There is a covered garage where two cars could conceivably fit in a tandem parking configuration as well as the driveway that would allow you to park without blocking the sidewalk.

The sellers are weighing their options carefully as their family expands; conceptional plans were prepared for a 2-story rear expansion and renovation with a new roof deck, common living area, and master suite and a completed in-law. The current downstairs tenant has verbally committed to leaving the property when a sale closes. The opportunity and potential at 473 Duboce are great as it is pink!

Offered at $1.3 million, pre-MLS

473 has just recently been re-subdivided as its own parcel. Records seem to indicate that the previous owner bought the surrounding parcels so that there were three lots held together as a tenancy in common. as such, assessor records may not yet reflect this recent development.

Interested parties are advised to consult a land use lawyer to confirm.

Downstairs tenant has no lease with the sellers currently. But downstairs tenant is a friend of sellers and has verbally agreed and understands that she will vacate unit should property sell.

The previous deck was demolished on the thought that could be replaced using over-the-counter permits. But that apparently was mistaken advice. Sellers are investigating available options.

The upstsirs home receives great light and has a wonderful San Francisco feel. The seller, recent renovation has reduced the amount of noise and vibration felt in the home.
