Just saying “The Marina” evokes luxury, ease and sophistication – like brunch and sailboats floating peacefully side by side waiting to be taken out on the Bay. And where else can you see one of the most iconic views on earth on the daily and just take it for granted as part of your milieu? At 3354 Laguna, the beautiful San Francisco Bay is just two blocks away, as is Fort Mason Center with it’s panoply of arts and events. Chestnut Street’s main shopping district is two blocks in the other direction and Cow Hollow is a mere block beyond that. If you ate in a different restaurant every week for a year you wouldn’t run out! Think A16, Wago Sushi, De la Rosa, and Greens just to name a few. And if you like to exercise, play with the kickball league across the street, or choose one of the private studios to numerous to count or take advantage of some of the most scenic running and biking in the world right out the door.
But the real value is on the inside at 3354 Laguna #2. It is that just right 2 bedroom unit that will work for a single person, a couple, or roommates, but can also work as a starter home for a young family. The flexible floorplan with French doors opening between the great room style living area and the large front bedroom gives you options depending on your needs. The great room’s functionality is extended by an inviting nearly full width window seat which gives you a 200+ degree view from Pacific Heights, sweeping over the park, past the Bridge to the Bay down Laguna Street. The lovely kitchen with high-end stainless appliances, new quartz counters and stylish painted cabinets provides an avid cook with ample space to work while entertaining guests seated comfortably (and out of the way) at the bar height dining counter. The remodeled bath has been cleverly remodeled to include extra cabinets in addition to the vanity. Completing the home are a shared rear garden, private storage room and independent parking space. It has everything you need for now and into the future in one of the best locations in San Francisco!
The new tax plan has put a strict limit on the deductibility of state and local taxes (“SALT”) at an arbitrary $10,000. Unsurprisingly, this change will disproportionately affect taxpayers in high property value blue states, like California. A few weeks ago a California legislator was talking about creating a charitable fund or a structure of charitable funds to which people could pay their taxes so that they will still be tax deductible on a Federal return – and even allow them to direct their tax dollars. It seemed far fetched at first. Ironically, the path has been laid for this novel approach by conservatives, who have used it for years to allow tax payers to deduct the cost of private and religious schools. This Slate article sheds some light … Deduct this. Thanks Stefan for pointing this out! read more →
