Open House Report, SF Edition: Quirky Arts & Crafts Survivor On Russian HillAuthor:Philip Ferrato
There’s not much to look at this holiday weekend— even realtors are taking a break— but this cottage may be one of the last untouched Arts & Crafts houses in town, in an historic neighborhood and just downhill from Macondary Lane.
1960 Jones Street, Russian Hill, $1.875M
We don’t know who designed this charming little house, or when, but it survived the 1906 earthquake. The realtor speculates it’s by architect Bernard Maybeck, and while that’s a good guess, it’s lacking the historicist carpenter and wrought-iron details Maybeck was so fond of. Looking like it belongs across the bay in Berkeley— where it would be a million dollars less– a house like this is rare in San Francisco today, and the 3-bed, 3-bath shingled house is probably on the brink of losing its essential character in a massive renovation. Unless, of course, one factors in the neighbors in a part of town that dislikes change. Check out the listing link above for more images. Sadly, the realtor’s photography skills leave a lot to be desired, but don’t miss the long wedge of a studio flying off the second floor. Totally worth a visit.
