One neighborhood that buyers sometimes overlook is Lake Shore. It’s located around Lake Merced in the western part of the city, near Stonestown and Merced Manor. And it’s just down Sloat Boulevard from West Portal and Stern Grove; your money goes a little further here than it will in West Portal proper.
I previewed 1400 Eucalyptus on the Zephyr tour this past week. The single-family home was designed by architect Henry Doelger, who was famous for his box-like design in the 1940s, in areas like Westlake in Daly City and also in the Sunset. For those looking for very functional floor plans and good space, a Doelger can be right on.
1400 Eucalyptus is a detached, corner lot home with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a very nicely remodeled kitchen. There’s a large living room with fireplace and formal dining room; the bedrooms are a few steps up in this split-level setup and include a spacious master suite. The garage accommodates two-car, side-by-side parking.
This home may sell for a bit more than its $818,000 asking due to its remodeled kitchen and overall good condition. (It’s actually priced above recent comps, so I can’t say that they’ve listed significantly lower than what can be realistically expected.) Offers are due within a week of coming on the market, so the sellers are obviously confident that they’ll be garnering a lot of interest in the house.
