Inside one of San Francisco’s iconic Painted Ladies homes that’s a ‘fixer-upper’ and on sale for $2.75 million

There are seven homes comprising San Francisco’s iconic Painted Ladies row, and one of them is for sale for $2.75 million.

The home at 714 Steiner Street has all of the elements of that quintessential San Francisco charm: the pointed roofs, the crown molding, the ornate detailing, the opulent colors. But the century-old house is also badly in need of a complete interior renovation.

The home’s listing agent, Jeremy Rushton with Coldwell Banker, told Business Insider that the property is a “fixer-upper.”

Photos show peeling paint, dusty windows, grimy walls, and discolored tile flooring. The famous abode will likely need to have updates to its plumbing and electrical systems and full remodeling of its kitchen and bathrooms, Rushton said. The ownership history of the home is complicated, according to Rushton, and this is the first time it’s landed on the market in decades.

The row of Painted Ladies along Alamo Square Park has become one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city. Their namesake originated in a 1978 book about the city’s signature architecture, and the site was popularized in part by its appearance in the sitcom “Full House.”

Painted Ladies homes on the market are a bit of a rarity — only two were listed in the past ten years, Rushton said. In a city with a housing crunch, and with its status as an unofficial San Francisco landmark, it will likely find a buyer despite its needed renovations, even if it’s used as a second home, a trend among some deep-pocketed San Francisco homebuyers.
