Hot House of the Week: Mission Vic on South Van Ness


Whenever you’re talking real estate in The Mission, it’s important to consider outdoor space because The Mission has some of the best weather in the city. And the 3BR/2BA, 1575-square foot Victorian with the sweet yard (above) at 736 South Van Ness has it goin’ on. (List price: $799,000)

While you hang in the hammock, you can think about the home’s intact period details that feature high ceilings, large windows, and spacious rooms. And you can also be proud of your remodeled kitchen with Viking stove, as well as the rear guest cottage with its kitchen area and bathroom.

There’s no garage, but the sellers have arranged for a potential leased spot half a block away. And yes, 736 South Van Ness is located on a busy street, with four lanes of traffic and a variety of commercial properties surrounding it. (Though there’s a pair of very cool homes directly across the street, so the view isn’t bad.) The row of trees across the property’s front exterior—along with a picket fence—provide a nice buffer. So if you’re looking for a hip, urban home (preferably a single-family house) that’s literally five blocks from the heart of the Valencia corridor, this is it.

Recent comps like 949 Hampshire (sold for $740,000, and needed a gut renovation) and 826 Capp (a 2BR/2BA home that sold for $1,375,000) land 736 South Van Ness at about the right list price. It’s also important to consider that the average Mission condo sales price since October has been $724,000.

Give me a shout if you’d like to see this property, happy to schedule a showing. Or stop in on Saturday March 10/Sunday March 11th from 2:00-4:00 at the first open houses.
