I Could Live Here: A Mini Mission Mansion

Oh, be still my heart. I may talk a good game about living simply in a small space, but if we are being completely honest, it's really more my lack of a million dollars that is keeping me out of a gorgeous single-family home with its very own patch of grass.  Read More...

I Could Live Here: Turks and Caicos Villa

I know I'm usually a fairly modest girl when it comes to the type of real estate I dream about, and yes, last week I lambasted Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's obscene Bel Aire manse (but largess and luxury was the least of the its problems).  Read More...

I Could Live Here: Kim and Kanye's House

 Ok, no I couldn't. I can't even keep up the ruse for one sentence. But since I'm oddly house content this week, I figured why not throw myself a curve ball and see what would happen if I were forced to live in a hideous, 14,000-square-foot  nouveau-Mediterranean monstrosity in Bel Air.  Read More...

I Could Live Here: A Family Escape in Big Sur

 Last night I cooked and served dinner for nine friends in my 500-square-foot San Francisco condo. As always, it was charming, cozy, and good times were had. But by 11pm, I really wished I had a dishwasher.  Read More...

I Could Live Here: Venice's Lantern House

I often love both old and new houses equally, but it's when there's a strange mix of the two that I become smitten. Last time I swooned over the latter. This time, I've got a date with history.  Read More...

I Could Live Here: Cool and Clever Victorian in Noe Valley

This is an old favorite. I've wanted to live here since long before there was an "I Could Live Here." I first saw this moody San Francisco Victorian profiled just after its completion in 2007, when it was profiled by the NYT and promptly lit up the blogosphere. The difference today? It's for sale.  Read More...

I Could Live Here: San Francisco Ritz-Carlton Penthouse

  I know, writing about how I could live in an $8 million dollar penthouse equipped with an at-my-beckon-call concierge seems like a throwaway. Like I'm cheating at my own imagination exercise. But please, bear with me on this one.  Read More...

I Could Live Here: A Modern Vision in Venice

I may be an SF resident by mortgage and marriage, but my work and my in-laws provide plenty of opportunity to head to LA. Each time I go, my parallel parking gets a little better, and I fall a little more in love with Venice.  Read More...

I Could Live Here: 1970s Redwood Tower House in Bolinas

I've always considered myself a city girl, through and through, but as my days get busier, and I get, well, let's face it, older, the slow life of the country gets more and more appealing.  Read More...

I Could Live Here: The Belles of the Presidio

My latest fantasy home is a brand-new LEED-certified, 3-story townhouse tucked in the woods of the Presidio with 3 bedrooms, a garage and a heated roofdeck.   Read More...
