The last time I tried to get in to see 48 Linda on broker tour in July 2008, the home had already been sold (for $2,205,000) before there was time to cancel the tour. There was nothing to do except walk back up the narrow street to my car and move to the next property.
Flash forward to April 2010, and 48 Linda is again on the market—this time for $2,249,000. Billed as a “4BR family home,” the property has 3,000 square feet, two-car parking, a minimalist fireplace, and nice finishes throughout:
For those doubters who think a family wouldn’t choose to take up residence in the heart of the Mission, I beg to differ. There is a contingent of young, wealthy and hip parents out there that would love to tote their kids to Tartine, appear at 5:00 to eat a family dinner at Farina, or quiet down a crying child with sea salt caramel ice cream at BiRite. Sure, it’s an urban area, but the house does have four bedrooms upstairs, a playroom downstairs, and I’m guessing it has a pretty kick-ass security system.
