I have two sets of buyers who would probably like author Armistead Maupin’s charming shingled home at 27 Belmont in Parnassus Heights. (And I read and enjoyed The Night Listener, which was written at Belmont.) So I couldn’t miss seeing the property on broker tour yesterday.
Listed at $1,198,000, 27 Belmont is a 3BR/2BA home with about 1600 square feet across three levels. It’s not ideal for a family, but for buyers looking for a nice master suite, lovely outdoor areas and downtown views, the house works well. There are actually two master suites, one on the second level and one at the very top. The kitchen is on the small side, but nicely done. The home definitely provides the peace and quiet an author would need.
What will 27 Belmont sell for? My guess is that the views, charming and unique setting and celebrity cache will send the selling price soaring above the seemingly low $1,198,000 list price.
