Just SOLD! Ideal Noe Valley Condo

4173 26th Street, San Francisco, CA 94131  

2 Bed | 1.5 Bath | 1300 SF | Built in 1925 | 1 Garage Parking

SOLD for $1,500,000 Offered for $1,295,000

Listing Agents Note: A darling young couple purchased the home and were delighted as their grand piano fit so beautifully in the living room Bay Window area. Best of all, due to the vintage architecture featuring wide stairwells and door ways, they were easily able to haul the piano up the front steps and through the front door - which was a huge consideration for them in buying a home!

Congratulations to the new homeowners and to my seller for the hard work in upgrading the unit which helped it sell so quickly!

Old Interior Design Becomes New in 2018!

I love when Vintage features from interior design of the past are updated and included in today’s homes. Here’s a few examples of what is “back-in”, allowing us to borrow from yesteryear to emphasize the charm of any size space in your home

Wallpaper is back, having left our design ethos years go. Used in living spaces and bedrooms, with a variety of colors and patterns it allows you to customize the space! Choose peel and stick for easy DIY installation.

Cozy is back, with smaller well appointed spaces featuring small kitchens and dining nooks or open plan dining for condos and smaller homes fulfills the needs of budget conscious homeowners.

Linoleum is back. Think bathroom checkerboard. It’s water-resistant, perfect for bath and kitchen. Paired with vintage inspired brass or metal faucets and fixtures and a claw foot tub; the old becomes new.

Still - shag carpet is still not the best choice, though updating vintage design with newly minted vintage options makes for a fresh turn on old design.

"Hi!" From the Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco

Saturday Morning...

I'm walking up to #legionofhonor Museum to take in the special exhibit, Truth and Beauty: The Pre-Raphaelites and Old Masters, followed by lunch in one of my favorite Cafe's in San Francisco. Did you know the Chef pares the menu to the exhibit?

The gorgeous Neo-classical style Museum is a 3/4 replica of the Palais de la Légion d’Honneur on Paris' Left Bank. Built in the 1920's by Adolph B. Spreckels, for his wife Alma and for the boys who were lost in the Great War (World War I). She later donated the Museum to the City of SF.

The Grounds are are beautiful with views of the Ocean, Golden Gate Bridge, Ocean, Downtown and nearby, is the Land's End Trail.

Stay tuned for my 10 FAVORITE PAINTINGS!
