Listing of the Day
Location: San Francisco, California
Price: $7.3 million
From the outside, this home fronting San Francisco’s Alamo Square Park fits right in alongside its surroundings, mainly the neighboring “Painted Ladies,” the row of Victorian homes that spurred the creation of the nickname in the 1970s. Their colorful facades provide a striking contrast against a more modern San Francisco.
At 1164 Fulton St., the home “was originally built in 1888 and underwent an extensive renovation in 2016,” said listing agent Neill Bassi of Sotheby’s International Realty. “The restoration of the facade was based on historical photos from the 1800s, since over the years it had been drastically altered from the original design.” In total, the process took nearly four years to finish, 26 months of design and permitting and another 22 months of construction.
Behind the historic facade, a contemporary and high-tech home awaits. “The interiors were intelligently designed with a focus on open and airy spaces,” Mr. Bassi said of the light that pours in through the skylights, windows, and glass floor tiles, adding that the open concept was created to focus on “the incredible outlooks onto Alamo Square Park and the north views of the city.
The four-story home, four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath home is serviced by a dramatic staircase, as well as a glass-paneled elevator. On the lowest level resides a two-car garage and in-law suite with full bathroom and kitchenette. The main and upper levels feature a master bedroom, plus three additional rooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, and the communal living spaces (kitchen, dining room, living room, breakfast nook). The fourth floor is a rooftop terrace with a full outdoor kitchen and fire pit.
The home’s design was led by Jensen Architects and DrömHus General Contractors, both local firms out of San Francisco. "Jensen Architects is known for incredible design and a focus on craft,” says Mr. Bassi. “They have designed projects in California, the U.S., and Europe, but they don’t primarily focus on residential, which is why one of their residential projects is so rare to find.”
This home sits right where you want to be to get the most out of San Francisco living. Outside of Alamo Square Park with its world-famous “Painted Ladies,” a playground, walking trails, a tennis court, and the perfect setting for a picnic, it’s located one block away from the bustling Divisadero Corridor, known for its trendy restaurants, cafes, markets, and shops.
“It’s home to some of San Francisco’s most popular markets, including Bi-Rite Market, which only came into the neighborhood within the last few years and has since become a go-to spot for freshly made ice cream, specialty sandwiches, and the freshest selection of fruit and veggies,” Mr. Bassi said. “The Divisadero Farmer’s Market is just one block away and is open every Sunday; it’s a popular spot for neighbors and locals alike.”
