In 2015, one of San Francisco’s most recognizable homes– a pink duplex– on one of its most recognizable streets–the famously crooked Lombard– went up for sale for the first time in over 50 years. Now, three years later, it’s on the market again, priced at $5.375 million.

The history


The duplex at 1047-1049 Lombard is a familiar site for those who’ve traveled the many curves of that iconic San Francisco Street.

Built in the late 1940s, it was home to the late Elton Puffer, whose famed art collection includes gifts to the Asian Art Museum. Puffer owned the building for over 50 years.

In 2016, it sold for $4.050 million.

The home now

The duplex offers two levels of living.

The top unit is two beds, two baths with a formal dining room and deck offering classic SF views of Coit Tower and the Bay beyond.


The lower unit is three beds, three baths. This is where  you’ll find the rather stunning gold-leaf spiral staircase you see in the gallery above.

Both units have fireplaces.

But Lombard though? 

Lest you fear the perennial tourist attraction that is Lombard as your access to city and home, rest assured. Per the official website, you never have to drive on Lombard Street at all.

This stunning two-family building has frontage directly on the iconic curved section of Lombard, but the oversized three-car garage in the rear, plus motor court parking for up to four more vehicles, is accessed with ease from quiet Lurmont Terrace.

Incidentally, that parking adds up to seven dedicated spaces. So if you need some side-income, you could rent out the extra spots.

Delivered vacant

Co-listing agent Faye Dibachi told SF Gate that the duplex hasn’t really been altered since its 2016 purchase, meaning its kind of a blank canvas: a new buyer could update the property, or restore to full retro glory. The option of converting to a single-family exists as well. 

And, very important information to know: the duplex is being delivered vacant. 

What price to live on this famous street in this famous home? Asking $5.375 million.
