Take Your Pick: Trio on Edgewood

Coveted Edgewood Avenue in Cole Valley/Parnassus Heights is a small, brick-lined street with a sudden spike in inventory over the past few weeks. Over the past three years, three homes have sold per year.

It seems like all the neighbors banded together and decided that Fall 2010 was the time to meet the sales quota. (Though one other home has sold this year.) I thought it’d be fun to check out each available property so you could get a sense for values on Edgewood Avenue.

We’ll start with 226 Edgewood:

226 Edgewood is a 4BR/4BA, three-level Craftman-influenced home listed at $3.5M. It has a gated entrance, sweeping city and bay vistas, and walk-out decks on every level. The interior is nothing fancy, with basic finishes. But it’s clean, and has a lovely garden.

Next up is 227 Edgewood:

227 Edgewood also has 4BRs/4BAs, but is a bit less expensive at $2.6M. The home was last remodeled in the late ’80s, and the design scheme is dominated by wood finishes. The bedrooms are scattered among three levels, so this is a good place for people with guests. Like most of the homes on Edgewood, this property has mega views. But it needs major updating, so the price seems a bit high to me (particularly as there’s no garage).

Last up is 285 Edgewood, the newest kid on the block:

285 Edgewood has 3BRs/3BAs and about 2500 square feet. It was built in 2006 and features nice touches such as surround sound, a gas fireplace, spacious kitchen with a Wolf six-burner range and a large view deck with a built-in gas grill (love that!). All three bedrooms are on one level, each with its own bath. 285 Edgewood is listed at $2,195,000, and it’s my pick of the three.
