Knocked Up

932 Kirkham St., San Francisco, CA 94122

All of the rest of the photos on this listing are perfectly normal, but for some reason they chose this odd closeup of the door knocker flipped up as the primary photo.

Maybe it has some sort of code meaning that’s only evident to San Francisco residents who are in the market for an $800,000 2-bedroom condo?

  1. Well, the Brits use the expression “to knock [someone] up” when they mean “to drop by [someone’s] home for a visit” – it’s sort of a variant on their expression “to ring [someone] up” meaning to call them on the telephone.

    So… maybe it’s meant to notify any other expatriate Brits in SF with 800k to spend on a nice condominium that no appointment is necessary to go see the place, allowing the owner to sell to someone like himself while the rest are all leaving messages, eh? :D

    I have to wonder if the door knocker picture was to hint that this place has history, given that the interior shots are all pretty modern. It looks like brass which needs cleaning, though it might be some other metal. Sure, the description mentions the building was constructed in 1947, but a picture might just clue casual viewers in. Still, if you’ve got $800K burning a whole in your pocket, I’d hope you’d read the large print, not to mention the small print.

    As for the place – what a winner! Even at this price!! I say that because SF is already notoriously expensive, yet this place still includes an incredible view, including of the famous “TransAmerica Pyramid” building *and* the top of the Golden Gate Bridge, for crying out loud. Add in private green space (shared with the other unit) AND a parking space… Well, what’s not to like? If the heart of SF is where you’re determined to live, you could do a lot worse for this price range.

    As for the interiors… I am in love with whomever decorated this place. Wow. Just… wow. Tasteful, sleek but still homey, colorful without being overpowering, toned down color in the kitchen, but that works well for the style. Hardwood floors (*dark* brown adds some visual weight and “seriousness” to the lineage), an arched doorway, a fireplace on the slant… like I said, wow. The only tiny thing I would want different is to have a more traditional high-back toilet. The kind shown can wreak havoc on one’s back. But perhaps this is a low flow model required by city codes. Either way, if that’s the only thing I can find to call out, a true listing miracle has taken place, my friends! :P

    Hey, the handle is sticking up. Does that mean it’s excited?
