San Francisco, CA – May 7, 2012 – One of San Francisco’s historic Painted Ladies has just been listed on the market. The First Lady is now available for the first time in nearly 20 years. The iconic home at 710 Steiner Street last sold in 1993 for $575,000. To mark the occasion, Bonnie Spindler, Zephyr’s Victorian Specialist, is hosting a champagne reception on Monday, May 14, from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
The Painted Ladies, together one of the City’s most recognizable landmarks, are located across from Alamo Square on Steiner near Hayes. Featured in numerous photos, souvenirs, advertisements and films, the ladies are also called Postcard Row and feature some of the finest examples of Victorian architecture around. The seven Ladies were the project of Matthew Kavanagh, who built them between 1892 and 1896, reserving the northernmost dwelling for himself.
The home now on the market boasts four levels and features five bedrooms, two and one-half baths, large closets, laundry facilities, three vintage fireplaces, a brick patio, private yard with redwood trees and Australian ferns, a two-car garage, and three decks with lovely downtown views. The triple parlor is perfect for entertaining and embracing the lifestyle so richly represented. Elegant touches such as the inlaid floors, skylight and dramatic chandeliers distinguish this Lady from her sisters.
A photographic tour and detailed features and amenities can be viewed at www.710Steiner.com. This home is listed at $2,295,000.
