54-56 Cook St, Laurel Heights

2,280 square foot duplex Victorian fixer built around 1900. Currently listed for $1.2 million.

Broker Babble: This is a remarkable blank canvas that once belonged to the famous SF artist Howard Hack. Howard used the lower unit as a huge art studio and reduced the upper to lots of open space. Tax records show 11 rooms total. Both large flats have 1BA each. Walls have been (re)moved, and maintenance has been profoundly deferred: it needs a fresh start with new owners. Not for the faint of heart ... this is truly a contractor's special, as it has sat vacant for over 15 years. Possible potential for expansion in the basement and/or tall attic. Bring your contractor and your vision. Rare 1900 combination of slanted and square bays. This will be a brilliant building once again when given a new lease on life!
