"Last Man Standing" On Lucas Avenue Folds

New, 20 comments

RIP Bob Pramenko, elderly resident and famous holdout at 200 Lucas Avenue near downtown. Pramenko passed away four months ago and his Craftsman-like home--wedged between numerous developments on Lucas--was listed yesterday for $429,000 (it's a probate sale). "Last Man Standing" was the November 2007 Downtown News headline for a story about the 93-year old, who bought the 1910 house on Lucas for $19,500, but refused developers' offers of as much as $700,000 to sell his place, one of the few remaining single-family homes on the hill. "He was sweet, but he was stubborn like a mule," Lil Montalvo, listing agent at Coldwell Banker, tells Curbed. "He wouldn't sell to anyone." Despite Pramenko's wishes, his home may indeed may be turned into condos: Montalvo says this lot can be developed for four units.
