Own your piece of San Francisco history. This Queen Anne beauty with many original details, is a Cranston Victorian constructed in 1890. The lady isn't afraid to let you see her without make-up: This Grande Dame has such fine classic bone structure, she's being presented without staging. And oh the stories she can tell! One of a row of still intact turn-of-the century Victorians, she became a boarding house during WW2 when soldiers needed Bay Area housing. She's been loved by the same family since 1963, was neighbors with the Grateful Dead, enjoyed the Summer of Love and will tell you what a long strange trip it's been! Three levels of living space, with a grand main floor perfect for entertaining. 4 bedrooms plus sunroom on second level, third level with views to Downtown and the spires of St. Ignatius church. Ground level with 2-car garage and room for expansion.

Floor Plans


At the center of Haight Ashbury is one of the most famous intersections in America. The epicenter of the counter culture movement, home to the Grateful Dead, the Haight Ashbury Free clinic, and the hippies of the 60s, today Haight Ashbury still retains a heady whiff of those free-spirited days, grounded by a new civic awareness and neighborhood pride. Tourists still come from around the world to check out the action on Haight Street, and they find plenty of it. Trendy boutiques like Upper Playground, Buffalo Exchange and American Apparel sell the coolest looks. Independent record store Amoeba offers free in-store performances and proves there's still life in the music industry. When the hubbub of Haight Street proves too much, Golden Gate Park, with its new world-class museums, the DeYoung and the California Academy of Sciences, offer a calm oasis. Renovation of the neighborhood Victorians continues apace. Converted to apartments in the 60s these homes are being rediscovered by families who take them on as hobby, pastime, passion, and investment. For families with young kids, the Haight Ashbury Coop Nursery School, now in its third decade, provides an inexpensive alternative to day care from its home in the Alma Street playground.
