924 Grove St, Alamo Square

Around the corner from the Painted Ladies....The Colgate mansion is a FRANK VAN TREES designed 5,100 square foot 6 bedroom 5.5 bath Classical Revival with a Richardsonian style entry made of rusticated sandstone, built in 1903.

Last sold for $2.9 million in 2009 ($490K under asking).

The property previously sold for $1.15 million in 2005. At which time there were a number of illegal apartments, five kitchens, lots of staircases and interiors that were almost completely devoid of any original architectural details.

The buyers gut-renovated and contemporized the interiors while retaining the original facade, with its lovely blue paint, intricate stucco and ornate cast iron work. The garage was added during this time.

Market value is about $6 million.
