It’s not every day one gets to sell a home having ties to a legendary sports figure. The home in fact, is 873 South G Street, Livermore. This is a Craftsman Bungalow and Legal Second Dwelling Unit now available for sale with familiar connections to championship boxer, Max Baer. Max’s sister, Frances and her husband Louis Santucci owned the 873 South G Street for five decades. Max posed proudly with his sister and brother-in-law in the candid shot in front very fireplace standing the test of time.
Frances’ granddaughter stopped by our open house and was clearly moved by the preservation of the home. She took me through the property and described the family gatherings and her childhood memories.
Her grandparents owned much of the corner of G & Palm Streets. There were many gatherings and parties hosted at 873 South G Street. The now enclosed garage was originally a carport that was never used for cars it the perfect party space for spirited affairs that attracted family and friends far and wide.
The family came to Livermore from Durango, Colorado to escape environmental & climate-induced health issues for temperate California. The family eventaully settled in Livermore, ranching 2,000 hogs on a property called Twin Creeks off off Marina Drive in South Livermore. This is also the place where young Max trained in the early years. Max Baer credited working on the hog ranch as increasing his strength of his 6 foot, 6 inch frame.
