It was September 2009 when 315 Santa Clara came on the market in the coveted enclave known as St. Francis Wood. The 4BR/5.5BA, 5700-square foot Spanish Mediterranean manse occupies a double lot, has an indoor pool, courtyards and terraces and was listed at $4,795,000.
The home’s price has just been reduced to $4,349,000—substantial, but consider that the property was last sold only three years ago for $2,650,000. Another case of 2010 optimism? That is one hefty chunk of appreciation. Granted, the master suite and another bedroom were remodeled by the current owners. But even at its reduced price, 315 Santa Clara would be the most expensive house sold since January 2009.
