This week, workers are putting the finishing touches on one of Bernalwood’s most high-profile construction projects: 3407 Folsom, that all-new, all-modern house perched at the top of Folsom, just below the north entrance to the park on Bernal Hill. You can’t miss it; it’s the very conspicuous, very last house before you hit the park, and you practically traverse the living room as you scoot down the hill from Bernal Heights Boulevard.
But what’s it like inside this 4BR/3.5 Bath Mod Mansion? Let’s take a look…
Most of the bedrooms are above the garage. This one faces west:
Here’s an interior view of the stairway that’s visible from the street. It takes you from the bedrooms below to the glamorous living level above…
At the top of the stairs, there’s a dining zone with a slammin’ view of the hillside:
The kitchen is just to your right:
Do a 180, and you’re in the living zone, with gas fireplace and plug-n’- play hookups for a flat-panel TV:
Wander out the sliding glass doors to find a deck with spiral staircase leading up to the HELIPAD on the roof!
Actually, it’s not a helipad (though it really wants to be one). Instead, there’s a very schwank roof deck with killer views of The Mission and downtown:
Looking back toward Bernal Hill, this is the view you see:
The sign outside indicates that 3407 Folsom has been sold, though it appears the sale hasn’t closed yet. (Realtor readers, can you confirm?) No word on the sales price, either.
But soon, it seems, this home will be occupied by another new Bernal neighbor. And someday, mmmmmaybe, they might invite you over for cocktails on their rooftop helipad. But if not, rest secure in the knowledge that at least you got to savor the view, albeit vicariously.
