Discover San Francisco Victorian Homes For Sale
It wouldn't be much of a stretch to call San Francisco the premier site for Victorian architecture on the West Coast. Whether you're looking for examples of Second Empire, Queen Anne, or Italianate homes, the dominant styles of the Victorian era are well-represented by masterworks like the instantly recognizable Painted Ladies, an iconic row of Queen Anne-style homes facing Alamo Square Park.
San Francisco Victorian homes for sale date primarily from 1860-1900 and reflect the period's penchant for experimenting with an eclectic mix of Medieval and Classical influences. The results are uniquely ornamented homes that tend toward strong asymmetries compounded by the addition of turrets, irregular roofs, and patterned gables. Originally, many of these homes were painted in simple earth tones, but in San Francisco the tradition of applying bright colors to the exteriors began shortly after the Civil War.
Today, San Francisco Victorian homes for sale represent the higher echelons of the city's real estate market, with most prices well above $1,000,000. As such, you can expect to find that homes here have typically undergone modernization in order to support the sophisticated, contemporary lifestyles of the city's most successful residents. Some have undergone complete transformations in order to establish the open floor plans desired by today's buyers, while in others home steps have been taken to preserve and retain the home's original character.
Regardless, you can expect to find luxury features, like:
softwood flooring and soapstone counters
renovated kitchens with top-of-the-line appliances
guest or au pair suites with separate entry
photovoltaic solar systems
Nest and Sonos smart home technologies
Life in San Francisco Victorian Homes For Sale
Dotting some of the city's trendier communities—including Haight-Ashbury, Noe Valley, and the Mission—San Francisco Victorian homes for sale sit in prime residential spots near a vast array of eclectic businesses and attractions, including some of the city's best restaurants and retailers. Residents of San Francisco value the walkability of their neighborhoods, so expect to find laid-back crowds ambling down sunny sidewalks in search of a farmer's market or a glass of local wine.
A fairly typical Italianate duplex in the Inner Mission, for example, sits near the greenspace of Franklin Square, with a Safeway and community market around the corner, a cafe next door, and a dozen theaters and galleries within walking distance. Children of the lucky people who call this place home don't need to take the bus to get to some of the state's best high schools and elementary schools either.
Commuting across the rest of the city—or even to other regions of California—is also extremely easy thanks to San Francisco's stellar freeways, ferries, bridges, and international airports. San Francisco's Muni system runs an intricate network of buses, light rail, and streetcars that make it easy to leave the car behind. And don't be surprised to see both an abundance of bike routes and the latest ride sharing services throughout the city, reflecting the city's progressive values and deep connection to the tech industry.
