District 1 Modern Real Estate Market

The best opportunities to unearth mid-century modern design in this district might be found in Laurel Heights or Lone Mountain. While much of the architecture in these neighborhoods reflects the typical San Francisco style popular in the early 1900's, the Laurel Heights and Lone Mountain areas were developed a little later in the century and many of the properties express a more modern, contemporary style. Sea Cliff also has some lovely homes designed with a modern aesthetic by Appleton and Wolfard. For the patient (and very lucky) mid-century enthusiast, homes created by the likes of Joseph Esherick, Wurster, Bernardi and Emmons, and Paffard Keating-Clay occasionally hit the market.

Perhaps the best bet for a contemporary home can be found in a remodel. Many homes throughout the district have been renovated with modern principles in mind. One great example is the redo of a home in the Richmond. Designed by the Interim Office of Architecture (IIOA), this home retains its traditional facade, but is sleek and modern throughout the interior. Other homes, including several in Laurel Heights, have been completely updated and feature contemporary design inside and out.

If your heart is set on living in this northwestern corner of San Francisco, and a modern home is what you're looking for, patience and due diligence may help you find your dream house. For the mid-century modernist, choices are limited, but the homes are out there for those willing to look.
