I recently saw a listing for an apartment out here in the Fog Belt that has a curious selling point "period details."
Now, if you've never been to San Francisco's Richmond District, perhaps you think of our quaint and often photographed Painted ladies– the gorgeous Victorian and Edwardian buildings on all our postcards and tourist literature.
But as a long-time neighborhood denizen, living in a 1965 building, I started to think, what exactly would I consider to be a 1965 period detail? Original powder blue and baby pink kitchens? (NOTE: that is what my place had before I signed the lease and they ripped it out.) A lack of windowsills or mouldings? The introduction of the open floor living plan?
I'm not sure that any of those details would entice your average renter, but I could be wrong about that…
TGIF and a Happy Long Weekend to you!
