OFFERED AT $5,245,000
Own a piece of San Francisco history with this elegant Queen Anne Victorian, built in 1891. Sunny and sheltered, its Eureka Valley enclave escaped fire in the 1906 earthquake, allowing this beauty to survive – and thrive – to 128 years young. The tri-level home has aged gracefully (and by that we mean barely at all,) lovingly maintained and updated with a careful hand to blend old-world charm with modern amenities.
From the street, you’ll fall in love with the corner turret, freshly painted clapboard, a cozy front porch supported by classic columns, and leaded window detail. Step inside the light-filled interior and you’ll be struck by stunning city views, soaring 12-foot ceilings, white oak floors, and period elements like ornate crown molding, stained glass, and a marble living room fireplace you can’t help but want to curl up in front of.
There’s a homey sense of comfort to the entire residence, belying its grand sense of scale. The expansive property consists of the main
house, an in-law unit replete with kitchen and bath, and a beautifully landscaped backyard with garden patio and pergola. Bedrooms are generous in size, bathrooms are sleek and well-appointed, and closets and patios abound. The eat-in kitchen boasts ultra-upscale appliances, large pantry, breakfast nook, and opens to a wraparound porch. Open living/kitchen/dining areas on the first level extend to another spacious porch, with exterior stairs connecting both decks to each other and to the garden below for seamless indoor/outdoor living and entertaining.
The primary bedroom takes comfort to a whole new level of luxury with breathtaking Bay views, five closets (including an extra-large walk-in), fireplace, and balcony. A glass ceiling and succulent garden lend the adjacent bath a serene spa-like feel.
Side-by-side washer/dryer in sunlit laundry closet. Huge basement storage & additional bonus space.

LOCATION: EUREKA VALLEY
When asked what they love most about Eureka Valley, residents cite weather, location, and the strong sense of community. Nearby Twin Peaks block San Francisco’s famous fog and winds, keeping the relaxed residential neighborhood sunny and warm – and allow for clear views of the city from one of the steep staircases that connect its many cul de sacs. Relaxed as the neighborhood may be, it is far from sleepy. Nearby Castro offers plenty of lively nightlife options, and Noe Valley to the south is rife with boutiques, markets, restaurants, and cafes. Take a stroll down tree-lined Church Street and enjoy a cuppa with scones at Lovejoy’s Tea Room or head to the 24th Street corridor for brunch, people watching, and the popular Noe Valley Farmer’s Market. Whole Foods, Bi-Rite Market, Dolores Park, Kite Hills, and Eureka Valley Rec Center are all within walking distance, as are SoulCycle and Barry’s Bootcamp. With everything you need, there’s little reason to leave this happy enclave, but when you do, it’s an easy trip via BART, MUNI, or 101.
