Just sold: 1287 4th Avenue

I am happy to announce that 1287 4th Avenue, a Victorian home I had listed in Parnassus Heights, has sold for $1.5 million after having been listed for $1.445 million. This classic flat boasts an unusual floor plan that places the master suite at the front of the home with a second full bedroom and bath set further toward the back of the property.

Another unique feature of 1287 4th Avenue is an unwarranted apartment downstairs. It was previously rented for $2,200 per month, but has been delivered vacant. While tax records show 1,853 square feet, that number likely doesn’t include this lower level.

This home also enjoys a deeded sunny deck and shared back yard (with one other owner) as well as parking for one car and a garden room that could be used as an artist studio or home office.

While technically known as the Inner Sunset, this little corner of the San Francisco world is sometimes known as Parnassus Heights due to the fact that the University of California Parnassus Medical Center sits just up the block. Should you choose to visit (and you should), make sure to check out Hugo Street, a two-block stretch that is lined gracious with trees, beautiful period architecture and some great cafes. In addition, Parnassus Heights also sits close to Golden Gate Park and Sutro Forest, making it an ideal spot for cyclists as well as runners.

You might want to check out the San Francisco Association of Realtors piece on Parnassus Heights if you’re seeking more information. I’m also happy to answer any questions, so get in touch!
