A Vibrant Victorian Near Haight-Ashbury Wants $2M

As San Francisco slips ever more deeply under the spell of the tech industry, it is important to remember that the city is and always has been a haven for art and culture. And that history feels present and alive in the neighborhood of Cole Valley, located on the border of the iconic Haight-Ashbury district, also known as the birthplace of American counterculture. A colorful Victorian, standing as a physical manifestation of the area’s lively energy, is on the market. Asking $1.995 million, the property can be a creative haven and is undoubtedly full of character.

Built in 1900, the home certainly witnessed its share of history through the years—the Summer of Love perhaps most notably—but autumn, winter, and spring can no doubt all be weathered in equivalent comfort. From the outside, the abode appears timeless and joyful with its yellow paint and green and white trim. Nestled between two other row homes along Parnassus Avenue, the façade is somewhat reminiscent of those Full House opening credits. What lies behind is a wholly unique marriage of contemporary-chic style and bohemian charm.

With a total of four bedrooms and three bathrooms within 2,532 square feet, the property enjoys a main living level that flows from living to dining to family rooms with ease. Upstairs are the traditional 3 bedrooms, while the fourth sits on the lower level as part of a loft-style writer’s space. Pete Brannigan of Compass holds the Cole Valley listing.
