Mediterranean Manse Gets Modern Makeover

Mediterranean Manse Gets Modern Makeover

Over at 424 Roosevelt, a 4BR/3.5BA, three-level Mediterranean-style home just came on the market for $2,395,000.

But when it came to “Mediterranean,” the owners didn’t exactly renovate with that architectural style in mind. They instead went for bathrooms straight out of new-construction SoMa:


So if you like modern, but enjoy Mediterranean, you’ll have the best of both worlds up in your manse in Corona Heights. The property permit history lists a litany of renovations, from a two-story horizontal rear yard addition and new kitchen, to balcony enclosures (after a while, that wind gets to ya) and large-scale plumbing/electrical upgrades.

But is the price right? The location is a little busy and exposed, but it’s at the foot of coveted Ashbury Terrace. The most expensive home sold in Corona Heights this year has been $1,840,000, and in Ashbury Heights/Cole Valley, the most expensive home sold was on Edgewood (a very different, more desirable location) for $3,075,000.

So I’m guessing the sellers are hoping a little Ashbury Terrace dust gets sprinkled on the stucco, tile roof and wrought iron and they can get their list price.

    Well, this weeks two contractors with mops and brooms were screaming bloody murder at each as I walked by, “f-you’s” and all. I wonder if something went wrong with renovation after the last rainfall, because they had buckets and mops galore.

    LOL! I love firsthand observations. Thanks for the comment. I think 80% of the homes in San Francisco had buckets & mops galore over the past two weeks. But this is particularly funny.

  3. […] Single-family home and condo prices in Corona Heights are pretty much in line with surrounding neighborhoods, though they’re probably slightly lower (though not by much). Single-family house prices range from $741,000 for a 2BR/2BA cottage to $1,675,000 for a 3,000 square foot 3BR house on Market (originally listed at $2,450,000). And let’s not forget about the renovated, Mediterranean house currently back on the market at 424 Roosevelt Way. […]
