The area from Golden Gate Park south to the San Francisco Zoo, and from busy 19th Avenue out to the Pacific Oean is generally known as the Sunset District. Originally nothing but sand dunes, it was built up gradually after WWII. The majority of homes in the area are built side by side with no space between, so they have small front yards and larger back yards. Coastal weather conditions make it difficult to grow tradtional trees and plants, so over the past 25 years many homeowners just covered their front yards in concrete. Low maintenance, AND you can park on it! Now the problem with this is threefold: First, it's not exactly legal to pave over your entire front yard. Second, all the runoff water flows in to the City's aging combined sewer system instead of recharging the underground ...

Ah, San Francisco’s Outer Sunset. The land of shivering surfers that is adored by some, ignored by many (locals), and completely misunderstood by the elitist-east-coast media establishment. But before I continue, it really is quite cathartic to be sitting in San Francisco and calling other people elitist and establishment. This post has been brought to you by the letter “E”, but I digress… Never one to take undeserved insults (bleak, for example) hurled their way without a fight, residents of the Outer Sunset have reacted to their ignoble media reputation. Eve Batey, Editor and Publisher of the SF Appeal weighed in over at last week with a guest post about all that she loves (and one or two things that she doesn’t love) about the Outer Sunset (and she should know, since she...

  Are you looking for a show/play?   Here's one that I think everyone would enjoy. Jake's Women is a play by Neil Simon. It centers on Jake, a writer with a struggling marriage. Jake talks to many of the women he knows, both in real life and in his imagination, as he works to save his marriage. Jake, suffering with psychosis and seeing representations of his daughter at age 12, his late wife Julie and recently divorced wife Maggie, is dealing with the inability to write productively and must resolve these issues before he does so. This fantastic show will be held at St. Ignatius College Prep High School located in the Sunset District of San Francisco.  Tickets are $10 at the door or online at Come out and support the High Scho...

It’s obvious that the real estate landscape has changed in the United States, California and even, dare I say, San Francisco… What is beyond fascinating however are examples like 1851 26th Ave. Despite its horrifically pink exterior, this home doesn’t look so bad from the outside. It has unobstructed ocean views, views of the Golden Gate Bridge, large back yard and a ton of space both upstairs and downstairs to add value. The Deets: Built in 1939 (on the early side for the Sunset subdivisions) 3 beds/ 2 baths 1175 square feet List Price: $629K Days on Market: offers accepted after 2 weeks Wet as a sponge (see below) The inside of the house was a different story. I’ve walked into a lot of homes in my day–some of which required hard-hats and safety waivers, but I have yet to see a home as...
