Unsuspecting Mid-Century Gem in North Beach

Sadly I judge many listings by their cover. So if the listing agent picks a bad photo chances are I’ll never uncover that the listing actually is truly amazing unless one of you more diligent readers drops me a line.

This morning a listing I most certainly brushed off because of the below photo was brought to my attention to Chad who found it as part of a Redfin Collection (disclaimer: I work at Redfin…):

Dig a little deeper and the North Beach/Blue Ridge home has absolutely stunning views and a remodeled kitchen.

Turns out this isn’t a total hidden gem. It’s been on the market for two months and has 120 favorites on Redfin. Why hasn’t 2624 NW Esplanade sold? It is listed at $820k (what they paid ’06), is 3 beds, 2.75 baths and 2,240 square feet. And a Redfin agent notes that there are train tracks right below the yard.

About Matt Goyer

I love condos, lofts, floating homes, new construction and mid-century moderns so much so that since starting this blog in 2006 I've written over 2,000 blog posts about them!

For years I resisted becoming a real estate agent preferring to be a marketing executive at Redfin but after leaving Redfin (after seven years!) I caved in the spring of 2014 and became a broker. So if you need help finding that "Urbnlivn-style" place or selling your home email me at matt@urbnlivn.com, I'd be happy to help you.

Prior to Urbnlivn and Redfin, I worked at Microsoft after graduating from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Mathematics with a major in computer science.

You can also find me on Twitter, @MattGoyer, or LinkedIn.
