If you’re out and about in the Outer Sunset on a regular basis, you might recognize the above “rustic fence” at 1530 48th Avenue between Kirkham and Lawton. Behind this weatherbeaten divider sits a very cool 2BR/1BA cottage that just came on the market for $799,000. And I’m betting there are a lot of agents and buyers who have already checked out the details of this listing.
The structure has a bit of a gas station overhang thing going on, but looks unique enough to attract a surfer who’d appreciate living one block from Ocean Beach:
The lot is deep, and the four-room house sits at the rear. It has softwood floors, high ceilings, medallions, a south-facing deck and a large attic. The bedroom is on the lefthand side, and the living room is on the right. Tax records show 1320 square feet.
The N Judah can whisk you downtown (as one reader notes, in 42 minutes) and is also one block away.
The average price for a two-bedroom home in the neighborhood this year is $639,285. I think you have to take the unique nature of the property into consideration in this case. This is not the cookie-cutter Sunset house that everyone is used to, so I’m guessing there are plenty of surfers who could happily hang their boards at this home.
