117 Manchester St, Bernal Heights

c. 2017 

c. 2014
2,276 square foot 4 bedroom 4 bath gut renovated and enlarged Vicwardian cottage built in 1906.

Currently listed for $2.785 million or $1,223 per square foot.

This house is perfectly situated close to the top of a steep quintessentially San Francisco street that dead ends at Bernal Heights Park so no through traffic making for a relatively peaceful setting.

The house is not well-staged and slightly overpriced. Not exactly a winning combination.

A permit search revealed both horizontal and vertical additions in 2015: HORIZONTAL ADDITION AT ALL FLOORS. INTERIOR REMODEL. PARTIAL VERTICAL ADDITION. ADD 2 ADDITIONAL BATHROOMS.

Originally a 640 square foot fixer that sold for $685K in 2013 (see photos below). Apparently the property sold again for $1.03 million in 2014 and had grown to 1,247 square feet???
