This grand architecturally significant Italianate home, ca 1880, has been well preserved, with its decorated slant front bay, bold cornice, quoins, and columned portico. The main floor has a large entry hall dominated by a magnificent walnut banister, double parlor, formal dining room, kitchen, and half bath. Upstairs are 5 bedrooms and a full bath. The rear staircase leads to a penthouse with full bath. There is a full basement accessed from the main staircase. The interior is richly decorated and well preserved, but all systems are antiquated and will need replacement. The kitchen and baths will also require renovation. The house is on the city’s Architecturally Significant list, level 4, and has great potential for upscale professional offices, especially because it is close to the various court buildings and City Hall.

The northern 45 foot portion of the property is vacant and level, with high density zoning (RM-4) and an 80 foot height limit. All indications are that there is the potential to construct a substantial residential development on the northern portion of the property. This property is part of a bankruptcy, and all offers are subject to the approval of the bankruptcy court.


This parcel is located on the northern edge of Hayes Valley, which has seen a number of recent high quality residential developments. It is close to good shopping on Van Ness Avenue and the re-vitalized Gough/Hayes Street shopping area. There is also excellent public transportation one block away.
