Open House Report, SF Edition: Forget Brady and Manning and Check Out one of these 5 Houses this Sunday


Super Bowl Sunday is one of those days where most people wind up with chicken wings in front of big-screen TVs, and that goes for realtors, too. There are 88 open houses scheduled for Sunday, February 5, instead of usual 150+, and here are four of them, plus one (the last) that’s only open Saturday, February 4. Some intrepid agents go the extra yard for their clients anyway— just not in the standard 2:00 to 4:00 time frame.

1901 Diamond Street, Noe Valley, $1.795M
If it were across the street is would be in Diamond Heights, but this renovated Mid-Century has many things going for it— like a long view across town to Bernal Heights and the Bay. All the possible “Brady Bunch” moments seem to have been edited out in this 4-bed, 3-bath house from1968. 12:00pm to 2:00pm 

156 Duncan Street, Noe Valley, 739K
A sweet 1-bed, 1-bath condo with a large kitchen and a dining room, plus parking. Nice garden. The listing puts it near “tech shuttles” another way of saying private transport to your job in Mountainview. 1:00pm to 3:00pm

3626 Lyon Street, Marina District, $2.675
If you’re headed to Crissy Field on Sunday, you might want to take in this sleek Marina renovation of a post-WWII Mediterranean. The 4-bed, 3.5-bath is across the street from the where the GGNRA meets Marina Green and the Palace of FIne Arts— an odd, but brilliant location— and has a deep rear yard. 12:00pm to 2:00pm

2172 Pacific Avenue No.1, Pacific Heights, $1.875M
Charmingly grand and overdecorated in the best way possible, this 3-bed, 2-5-bath condo has a huge deeded yard— overgrown in the best way possible. On the parlor and ground floors of an Edwardian mansion, this one’s like Paris-meets-the Bayou in San Francisco. We’re in love with the kitchen.


1234 Howard Street, No. 2C, SOMA, $589K
Allegedly a 1-bed, 1-bath, this is more like a studio. On the other hand, it was designed by the dean of San Francisco minimalist architects, Stanley Saitowitz, and thus is beautifully detailed but requires a minimalist, pared-down owner. A wall of windows looks out onto Natoma Street in all its edgy urban decrepitude. Absolutely worth a visit to see how far you can get from the year 1900. open Saturday, 2:00pm to 4:00pm
