Noteworthy new listings….
Perched on TV Hill with views of the ocean, the islands, the city, the harbor, the mountains—you name it—121 Via Del Cielo ($10 million) is undeniably striking, a Brutalist Aztec temple from the outside and, alas, a project on the inside. (Yes, that’s a full-size hot tub inside the master bedroom.) Could the property be brought up to date? Yes, although how easy it’ll be depends on what can be done with the rust-colored concrete floors. And you’ll have to decide how comfortable you are having a $10 million house amid far more modest properties. Still, it’s a statement waiting to be made. If it’s open this weekend, it’s worth a look.
94 Humphrey Road ($3.595 million) is a 1952 adobe that needs a total redo, but it’s not hard to see how it could be transformed into something extremely cool. While the walkability to the beach is appealing, the freeway—where construction is imminent—is a less welcome neighbor.
Built in 2006, 3115 Calle Noguera ($2.895 million) has old-house spirit and charm, and it looks turnkey, if you can handle the carpet. The property abuts an alley behind State Street, which has pros (you can stumble home from Uptown Lounge) and cons (so can everyone else).
1250 Ferrelo Road ($2.295 million) is a 1975 Lower Riviera house with a need for updating—but also great potential in the living room. (And the kitchen looks like it might pass.) It strikes me as a two-bedroom, however, given the shared bathroom on the main level.
And a couple others worth checking out:
••• 1215 Miracanon Lane ($3.3 million): On the back side of Alta Mesa, with four bedrooms but only two full baths and two half baths.
••• 429 La Marina Drive ($2.499 million): Mesa fixer with views.
••• 959 Barcelona Drive ($2.09 million): Hidden Valley three-bedroom wedged a bit tightly in its lot but adjacent to the Palermo Open Space (below).
