While it certainly looks a bit worse for wear currently, this 1929 Mediterranean on Van Ness Avenue at Sixth Street was probably pretty hot stuff back in the day. Unfortunately, the listing doesn't provide many photos, but if the rest of the house is anything like the grand living room, we're rooting for it to find a buyer who can restore it to its former glory. The 4,458 square foot residence features four bedrooms, four baths, hardwood floors, built-ins, high ceilings, a woodburning fireplace, basement, pool, spa, and separate guest unit. Originally listed at $1.1 million two weeks ago, it's already been chopped to $800,000.
