Luxury Russian Hill Remodel. Before and After Pictures

1750 Taylor #504 is a luxury co-op that sits at the apex of Russian Hill. It was purchased in its original condition by a real estate agent named John Farnham in 2016 for $1,667,250.

John’s plan was to extensively remodel the home and enjoy it for many years with his partner. However, after the remodeling they decided to sell #504 so they could buy a different property that had grabbed their attention. After some months on the market, my clients purchased the home in June of 2019 for $2,200,000.

Below are some before-and-after pictures that show you the home’s transformation. One of my buyers has a background in home design, so she appreciated the effort that went into renovating #504.

Happy Fourth of July

San Francisco’s fireworks show will get under way Thursday at 9:30 p.m. or thereabouts from the foot of the Municipal Pier and from barges north of Pier 39 at Fisherman’s Wharf.  Here are a few good places to view them.

  1. Take a ferry to either Angel Island or Treasure Island
  2. The Crissy Field picnic area
  3. Off the dock at Pier 7
  4. Take a cruise on the San Francisco Belle
  5. Grab a blanket and head up to Twin Peaks

More Sleep Please

DID YOU KNOW? 78% of adults are losing sleep over work, relationships, retirement and other worries, according to a study released by Bankrate.com. 56% of Americans are lying awake at night worrying about money. People are tossing and turning over retirement (24%), health care and/or insurance bills (22%), the ability to pay credit-card debt (18%), mortgage/rent payments (18%), educational expenses (11% versus 26%) and stock-market volatility (5%). The site polled over 2,500 people.

Let’s hope we can all rest up over the long holiday weekend.
