SF Cribs: The places behind the clothes - Page 106

post #1576 of 1897
I like the place but the dueling white ikea lamps are a bit much...

Maybe go somewhere else for a lamp with some color to it, or lose the pendant lamp in the living room as I don't really know if I would want that thing in my field of view while watching tv with the lights on. The pendant is better suited above the dining table.

Here's a thought: Stop outfitting your homes with shit made of plastic. It's tacky today. It's tacky tomorrow. It will be tacky for all time.

I have a nice plastic chair.

I don't hate all plastic objects.

You should. Plastic sucks.

I like the place but the dining reminds me of something. Maybe a outdoor hotel patio.

Moved into it brand new when I was 3 so I've lived there pretty much my entire life. Still, if I saw someone bulldozing it into the ground, I'd be pretty sad. All the memories and good times growing up. Who knows though, maybe I'm the only one sentimental about that kinda thing....

We've lived there for about 15 years. Parents moved into the area because it has an awesome school 4 blocks away, which also means that most families with kids my age have moved out of the 'hood and made room for young families. House is awesome: 1910 build, ~3500 sq.ft., 4 bedroom, 3 stories + basement, and we've renovated it heavily.

Parents had thought about selling for a while because with us kids off at university/moving into our own places afterwards. It's a biggish house with lots of maintenance and they'd prefer being further downtown.

Our neighbour sold their house for $4.5 mill (about 200% of what other houses in the area were selling for), and the buyer spent 3 years gutting it and redoing the entire property. It was ridiculous, they even ripped out the 5 year old stone swimming pool in order to reshape it because the designer told the owners the shape didn't fit properly with the shape of the house.

Anyways, to make a long story short, this said neighbour, whom has already put ~$2.5 million in renovations into their home, offered my folks a price they couldn't refuse. Of course we'd be happier selling it to a young family who would love and enjoy the house as much as us, but receiving 25% over the asking price really encouraged them to sell. We had a real estate photographer come in and make a photobook for us to remember the house by. I just feel bad for the rest of the people on our street who will have to put up with another couple of years of construction...

next house i'm looking at to move in with my brothers: http://www.realtor.ca/propertyDetails.aspx?propertyId=11007096&PidKey=-182389929
or this serves as a nice goal for after renovations, seems more worth it to buy a place like this http://www.realtor.ca/propertyDetails.aspx?propertyId=11007552&PidKey=13904168 and have $200k to renovate.

Not sure if you are familiar with the area that you posted those two links to, but watch out for the smell from the pig rendering plant about 300 meters away... It can be a bit putrid when the wind is blowing from the west (which it usually is...). It us actually one of the big reasons we did not buy a house in that area for a steal of a price, all other things considered.

Where did you end up settling? I love the area, we're also looking a bit further west and north. House prices in the area have just exploded though so it's hard to find anything reasonably priced.

not my crib, but i often check out the pictures in these houses for ideas in what I would like to do with mine, and as inspiration to become mega successful one day. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424053111904353504576568930050797942--LESS.html

Anyone looking for a castle in SF?

 

This unique one of a kind property aka The Albion Castle sits on the edge of the India Basin. The main structure offers 5 Levels & 2Ba. The kitchen has been remodeled. There is a separate side studio room off the main structure. The sale may include the water rights to the natural springs. This property was previously the site of The Albion Ale & Porter Brewery and a source for The Mountain Spring Water Co. There are natural springs producing water on site accessible through 3 caverns/2 caves. Fabulous views of The Bay and The Bay Bridge can be enjoyed from this property. Much San Francisco history and incredible potenital exists in this changing neighborhood.

That place is great. Really, really great. But that kitchen is a fucking disaster. The next owner should rip all that shit out and get free standing pieces; the kinds you can't get at Lowes during Black Friday.
