I don't know. Do we really need to get into this? It's another tale of crazy real estate prices, a total tear-down, and the desperation of some with money to own a little piece of a neighborhood like Noe Valley. Oh, well. Here goes.

As Curbed tells us, the 640-square-foot carriage house pictured above and below sits on the back of what appears to have been the side lot of a home next door, and it was built in 1907.

The kitchen, which you can see here, is basically unusable, and hasn't been updated since 1907. Yes, you get it, the $1.6 million asking price is just for the land.


Here's what it looks like from the outside.



Of course when someone builds their multi-million-dollar four-story modern manse on this lot, after fighting with Planning and all the neighbors for two years, those folks next door are going to lose a lot of light from those side windows.

This, by the way, is the ground floor of the carriage house, which similarly has not been touched since horse-and-carriage days, and looks like the perfect setting for a murder/dismemberment.


$1.6 million! You just have to laugh, and cry a little bit, and laugh some more.

It's making that shack on the Great Highway look like a steal.
