A big, beautiful classic Painted Lady Victorian flat is what most of us think about when we imagine living in San Francisco. This top floor condo in an iconic 3-unit Victorian building is located in one of most desirable neighborhoods in San Francisco. The historic 700 block of Castro St. is featured in many of the books about San Francisco Victorians.

The classically high ceilings, the original architectural details and Douglas Fir floors define this wonderful period of architecture. Although the floor plan is flexible, as is commensurate with the era, there are 3 distinct bedrooms. The grand master bedroom spans the original double parlor and includes a private sitting room. The second bedroom is spacious, and the third bedroom, although small, is flooded with natural light. The living room in the center of the flat has a gorgeous original and decorative fireplace that adds grace and substance to the room. The heart of this flat is at the rear where an open, enormous kitchen and sitting area afford the perfect spot to entertain.

The condo has recently been expertly and professionally painted with an ideal color palette. Most of the lighting fixtures are new and have been carefully chosen to complement the original architecture but with an eye towards contemporary style.

With a Walkscore of 95, this is the perfect home for those who want to walk out the door to cafes, shopping, parks, or public transportation. Many of the private high tech shuttles have convenient stops in this neighborhood.

Each unit in the building has a large, private storage room and shares a lovely garden at the rear. There is excellent month to month parking just a block away on Hartford St.
