Modernist Potrero Home Breaks Sales Record for Neighborhood

Modernist Potrero Home Breaks Sales Record for Neighborhood

The off-market sale at 1740 20th Street at Wisconsin in Potrero Hill is the most expensive home ever reported sold in the neighborhood.

Quietly sold in mid-September for $9,500,000, the 3BR/2.5BA home originally built in 1950 has just under 3,000 square feet, pano views and a commanding 50 x 100 corner lot in a prime location. And yes, that breaks down to about $3,100 per square foot that the buyer—Atom Holdings LLC—paid for this property.

The previous owner joined two lots to create unobstructed views. There are also signed-off permits from over the summer for a horizontal addition, garage expansion and roof deck that had been in the works several years earlier.

The sale at 772 Wisconsin in May 2014 was previously the highest-priced home ever sold in Potrero. The 4BR/3.5BA property, also modernist in style, changed hands for $3,700,000.

    I’m fascinated by this house. Any idea who the original architect was?

      I don’t know offhand, will let you know if I can find out who the architect is.

    I found out that the architect in question is Francis Joseph McCarthy (1910 – 1965).
