Mediterranean Manse Gets Modern Makeover


Over at 424 Roosevelt, a 4BR/3.5BA, three-level Mediterranean-style home just came on the market for $2,395,000.

But when it came to “Mediterranean,” the owners didn’t exactly renovate with that architectural style in mind. They instead went for bathrooms straight out of new-construction SoMa:


So if you like modern, but enjoy Mediterranean, you’ll have the best of both worlds up in your manse in Corona Heights. The property permit history lists a litany of renovations, from a two-story horizontal rear yard addition and new kitchen, to balcony enclosures (after a while, that wind gets to ya) and large-scale plumbing/electrical upgrades.

But is the price right? The location is a little busy and exposed, but it’s at the foot of coveted Ashbury Terrace. The most expensive home sold in Corona Heights this year has been $1,840,000, and in Ashbury Heights/Cole Valley, the most expensive home sold was on Edgewood (a very different, more desirable location) for $3,075,000.

So I’m guessing the sellers are hoping a little Ashbury Terrace dust gets sprinkled on the stucco, tile roof and wrought iron and they can get their list price.
