[According to Redfin, our fave online brokerage and intel source, there are 82 open houses this holiday weekend, most of them on Sunday. And that's just single-family houses. We've picked three that jumped out at us. -PF]
1112 Lombard Street: A grand Russian Hill 1940's Georgian that's suffered a few price-chops down from $4.998M a year ago when it first hit the market. It can now be yours for $3.675M. Open 2-4 on the Fourth, we recommend taking Hyde Street south to Lombard Street and making a right. Lombard going east will be backed up beyond Van Ness with tourists honoring the Signers of the Declaration of Independence by waiting to drive down the crooked bit. Come to think of it, 1112 Lombard does look a bit like Monticello, so have at it.
Like original woodwork? have we got a house for you: 1368 McAllister, in what remains of the Western Addition. Looks barely touched but entirely livable as is. No parking and recently price-chopped $75K to $1.725M. The kind of atmospheric Victorian many San Franciscans dream of, open Sunday 2-4.
3235 Webster Street: A sweet semi-detached and remodeled Marina of indeterminate style. They may have been going for Andalucian Village, but it's still a charming mash-up. Swell living room, A nice walk to Marina Boulevard for the yuppie passagiata plus Moscone Recreation Center is steps away, as the realtors say. Open Sunday 2-4 and on the market about two weeks: $2.195M.
