We’re in a vintage mood today. There is no substitute for old-fashioned charm in San Francisco homes and they just don’t make ‘em the way the used to. That’s why we’ve decided to count down the Top 5 Oldest Single Family Homes currently on the open market.
Number 5 on the countdown: 117 Broad Street, Year Built: 1896
This very unique home is nestled in Oceanview and was used as San Francisco Fire Department’s Engine Co. #33 station for three quarters of a century. The Victorian-styled building then became a one-of-a-kind single family home and has been used as such for around 30 years. The property is currently listed at $1,333,333, has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and high ceilings. As of this morning (1/14/09), the home has been on the market for 111 days.
Number 4 on the countdown: 2434 Leavenworth Street, Year Built: 1890
This 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath home located in Russian Hill boasts ~3,558 square feet and is surrounded by lush greenery. The home truly subscribes to the “they don’t make ‘em like they used to” adage as it contains 2 grand staircases, 6 fireplaces, and 13-foot ceilings. This Victorian is priced at $2,800,000 and has been on the market for 124 days.
