San Rafael’s Priciest Homes: 25 Harcourt Street

Every week, we feature one of the most expensive homes for sale in San Rafael. This one on Harcourt St. is for nearly $1.8 million.

This classic 1914 Forbes-style home was extensively renovated in 2012 and is back on the market for a reduced price of $1,795,000.

Designed by architect Andrew Fischer, the 4-bedroom 2.5-bath house is situated in a prestigious San Rafael neighborhood close to downtown and the Marin Academy.

The house is 6,752 square feet and has hillside views and a fireplace.

The property is represented by Victoria Love of Pacific Union. For more information, visit the property’s AOL Real Estate page.

Is this whole "priciest homes" column really necessary each week? Why is this news-worthy? What good does this do? It feels totally out-of-date / not in keeping with today's world/economy.

If you don't like the column, you have the option to not click on the link.

Morgan, you're totally missing the point. I agree with Beth. What is the point of this type of journalism? The whole reason I started reading Patch is to get away from this kind of reporting. Is this news or an advertisement pretending to be a news story? Why report who the real estate agent is? I wonder if "reporter" Chris Rooney or Patch get a percent if they help find a buyer? Also, who cares what the 1% are buying with their excess millions? Why doesn't Patch do a series on cheap rentals in good neighborhoods? I would be much more interested in that then a series on homes of the elite, monied, and affluent. They already have so much, do they really need another column patting them on the back for having the most expensive homes?

Hey Ryan many of the articles on the Patch come from readers like you. If you believe there is interest in articles about 'cheap rentals in good neighborhoods' go ahead and mock something up and submit it for review. Who knows. This thing (Patch) seems to be driven by readers like you and me so give it a try. Me, I pass on many articles I don't find interesting but I keep looking for those I want to read about. I have no interest in these types of articles except I couldn't think of where Harcourt was so I briefly looked and saw your comment. Yes it is a bit tough living in Marin if you are not really wealthy (I am not). Doubt that many of the so called the 1%ers read the patch. Their loss.
