On the Market: The Painted Ladies' Neighboring Sister

On the Market: The Painted Ladies' Neighboring Sister

Anyone who's ever been to San Francisco, or watched the opening credits of Full House, is probably familiar with the city's famous Painted Ladies, situated on a block bordering Alamo Square Park known as Postcard Row. The group of colorfully-painted Victorian homes was built between 1892 and 1896 by developer Matthew Kavanaugh, who built a bigger, slightly different Victorian mansion for himself next door on the corner that anchors the block.

The 4,692-square-foot, five-bedroom, 4.5-bath home, called the Shannon-Kavanaugh House, is now on the market for $4 million, after being available for rental for parties and other events. The home has four stories ($1 million a pop!), an in-law suite with a private entrance, and an attic suite with a full bath. Its original features, such as stained glass windows, moldings, medallions, wainscoting, four fireplaces, and historic Bradbury wallpaper, have all been beautifully restored. Aside from the home's history, it also has great views of the city and an awesome location on the park.
