105 Picnic Avenue, San Rafael - JUST SOLDPosted by Janis Peterson on Wednesday, June 6th, 2012 at 2:00pm.
Just Sold: 105 Picnic Ave., 2 bed/1.5 bath Vintage Charmer for $580,000
I felt honored to represent the executor/nephew on the sale of this beautifully maintained Vintage Charmer. It was owned by a friend whose father had built the home in 1921. She grew up in this house and then married and lived there with her husband. Between the home and the garden, it had been loved and cared for over the years, always keeping the vintage charm. Picnic Valley in San Rafael has a long history with deep roots.
Buyers and agents alike were smitten with the big front porch, glass doorknobs, high ceilings, wainscoting, sunroom and big picture windows and best of all...a garden to die for. Updated in the best sense of the word, the home maintained its character. It went into contract the first week and closed in 10 days. The new owner recognized this was a special home and didn't hesitate to go for it even though there were multiple offers. It sold for $30,000 over the list price.
