Well there is no denying it, tech is taking San Francisco by storm and although we love a great startup, here at Pro Media we know all too well that with the tech boom has created skyrocketing rent and real estate prices. But this local financial epidemic hasn’t just captured the attention of San Franciscans. The most recent issue of the New York Times Magazine has dedicated an entire feature to this topic.
Although the city has quickly developed a new reputation as the “live large” tech capital, the article argues that the homes to envy are the ones reminiscent of SF’s more soulful past, featuring select Bay Area homes that have maintained their Bay Area charm amid the money madness.
SF homes to envy: The Judd and Wade household 1912 Mediterranean Montecito-style house in Berkeley combines modern and creativity. While Kim Devine has lived in her Hayes Valley location for 32 years, filling it with unique and innovative collectables. Check out the other homes featured in the article here.
From the Dogpatch and Hayes Valley, to Pac Heights and even Berkeley, it’s true! These homes are definitely filled with the excitement and personality that reflect the diversity of the city. Who doesn’t love a home with character?! But we have to ask, does the NY Times Magazine have it right? Is the money boom affecting the charm of SF’s homes and living?
In addition to the NY times taking an interest in how we are living, Cottages & Gardens magazine has just launched SF C&G, an entire publication dedicated to SF homes and living.
There is no doubt about it. SF living and lifestyle is a hot topic right now! Where do you stand?
