Spring rains bring lush greenery, fresh lawns and blooming trees — and, here in the Bay Area, that’s truer than anywhere else. But if you think you’re getting spring fever, so is the housing market, because spring also brings the beginning of the region’s hottest seller’s market. A seller’s market means competition and prices are often higher. So as a buyer, you may want to snag your home before winter ends.
To help you gather home inspiration for your seasonal rejuvenation and to help you track down your dream home, we rounded up the Bay Area homes on the market right now you’ll want to snag before spring!
Presidio Heights at its Best
34 Maple St San Francisco, listed by Barbara J. Callan + Robert Callan Jr.
One of the finest homes in San Francisco on one of the most prestigious streets in the city, this jaw-dropping Tudor estate covers the entire corner block in luxury. While it’s tough to narrow down a highlight reel of this home’s stunning spaces, we haven’t gotten a chance to gush over the outdoor areas yet. And with spring coming up, that patio, those sweeping views and the lush lawn are calling to us! How about you?
Spanish Style in SF
629 Ulloa Street San Francisco listed by Yvonne Toracca
Every step you take on this West Portal property will lead you to more enchanting spaces (and we’re not just talking about those stunning, Spanish-inspired front steps!). On cold nights, you can opt for the indoor living room, complete with a rustic fireplace and elegant ceiling beams. But on warm nights, we suggest heading outdoors to the private deck!
A True San Franciscan
1701 Franklin Street San Francisco listed by Barbara J. Callan + Robert Callan Jr.
Talk about old-world charm! This home is classic San Francisco from the curb and pure luxury throughout. From the entryway through all eleven bedrooms and out into the park-like backyard — you’ll fall in love at every turn. And we won’t blame you! After all, the magnolia blooms, outdoor lounging, dining and entertaining spaces are worthy of your admiration.
Your Very Own Fairytale
750 Lovell Avenue Mill Valley listed by Ann Murphy
This dream home in Mill Valley is triggering our spring fever. As you wind up the driveway, over the bridge, and through the woods, it may trigger yours too. The house itself is designed in a Neo-Nantucket-Georgian Revival style and is surrounded by a serene stream, cascading waterfall and fairytale woods — with plenty of opportunities to lounge, live and appreciate the views from inside!
Magic in Marin
2 Cameron Street Inverness listed by Lotte and Sarah
Do you know what would make your spring rejuvenation easier? Your very own tree house, outdoor shower, hot tub and sauna surrounded by magical gardens and minutes from Point Reyes National Seashore. This Inverness home has all of that and more! Travel the wooded lands, lounge in front of your fireplace in the lodge-style living room, and eat meals as a family from the gourmet kitchen. You’ll feel rejuvenated all year long!
A Backyard for all Seasons
3123 Hillside Drive Burlingame listed by Jacklyn Friedland
Spring, summer, fall or winter — you’ll want to host gatherings all year in this home’s gorgeous backyard! Of course, you wouldn’t have to stay outside thanks to the spacious sitting, dining and living rooms, but when the spring rains bring green surroundings, you’ll likely be found lounging under that back patio awning or circled around the fireplace with friends.
Zen and a Hot Tub
158-160 Missouri St San Francisco listed by William Freeman
Modern meets zen in this custom-built home. Whether you’re lounging in the hot tub in the private backyard or reading in the loft, natural light will find you through the landscaped garden or through towering windows. In either case, you can rest assured the architecture and design will keep you feeling luxurious year-round.
