Tour a Beautiful San Francisco Home With Wonderful Bay Views

Have you ever been to San Francisco? I’ve been once and of course I had to do all the touristy stuff like get my photo taken in front of the Golden Gate Bridge. Did you know it’s windy on that bridge? :)

Golden Gate Bridge

 

Had to get a trolley ride in…

San Fran Trolley Ride

 

And toured Yosemite where I helped hold up this Sequoia. It was an amazing visit!

We also visited the Winchester Mystery House. Such an interesting tour, that was! If you ever get a chance, you need to tour that house! It’s pretty wild. I’d like to take one of their candlelight tours some Halloween.

Winchester Mystery House

 

Today we’re touring another beautiful home in San Fran that was on the market a while back. It’s a neoclassical-revival home and it sits on the corner of Broadway and Divisadero. The home is five stories tall and over 16,000 square feet with seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms. Wow! Huge house!

When this home was on the market, it was listed for 32,000,000, which was later reduced to 28,500,000. The home was fully renovated in 1990 with careful attention paid to preserving the homes classic architecture.

San Francisco Home

 

What a beautiful entrance with a gorgeous staircase! The floors are hand-planed walnut.

The living room…

I love the curved island in the kitchen. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a curved island before.

Kitchen

 

I’m normally not a big fan of orange, but I love the energy the orange and gold/yellow fabric create in the dining room. Check out that fabulous chandelier!

The breakfast area…think how easy it would be to change the color scheme by just making a few changes to the slip covers/fabrics in this room.

Breakfast Room

 

I love the stripped yellow and white curtains in this office/study. They look like silk taffeta. This was listed as a woman’s office in the article where I found these pictures. Notice how the walls are wood paneling that’s painted yellow. Ceiling is paneled, too. Would love working in an office with views of the city below.

Office

 

This is the man-of-the-house’s study. LOVE this room! I just love it when there’s at least one dark, cozy paneled room in a home. This is where I’d want to stay all winter long!

Study

 

The master bedroom…

Master Bedroom

 

Children’s room…love all the yellow walls throughout the home. I know that comes as no surprise. lol Great storage and lots of room for sleepovers.

Children's Bedroom

 

This room was listed as an Au Pair room. It would also make a wonderful guest room with a small kitchen and its own bath. Love the color of the walls in here, too! Again, it would be pretty easy to completely change the color scheme in this room. Just add new pillows and repaint. Amazing how easy it is to change a room and add lots of color  when you’re starting with all white furniture.

Guest Room

 

This home has some pretty amazing views!

Family Room

 

Wow! This almost has a beach cottage feel, doesn’t it? Love the high ceilings and painted paneled walls.

Capturing the blue hour.

Hope you enjoyed this tour! You’ll find many more photos of this beautiful home at PriceyPadsdotcom where these photos were found.

Love Blue Hour photography? Check out these previous posts below to learn more about it.

Pssst: I’ve updated the seasonal footer at the end of BNOTP and it’s filled with lots of St. Patrick’s Day and Easter inspiration! :)

  1. That is a great tour. Oh those views… How did you capture blue hour? Sleep there at night? Lol.. Just kidding.

    Wow, what a place. The views are incredible. And with so many stories to that house, there is something for everyone. The listing showed a picture of the ‘indoor basketball’ court, adjacent to the open air terrace! :D Haha. And much of the roof appears to be open air as well. Can you imagine sitting out there on a warm evening with a glass of wine, looking over the water and lights of San Francisco? *Sigh* I’d love to do some star gazing up there, but I doubt you’d see many with all the illumination in that area. My only objection to that house is that you are only 6 inches away from your neighbor. :(

    But no fair! I want the man’s study! :D That’s my favorite room. If it has a view as well … *sigh*

    Btw, don’t you always wonder about the people who own such places? What must they do for a living to afford a place in the tens of millions. Perhaps they don’t work … perhaps they inherited their fortune or made a killing in the era of the . com. Who knows. :D Another GREAT tour, Susan. Thanks.

    Btw, I love the picture of you ‘holding up the tree.’ ;)

  4. So glad you had fun in SF, it is a fabulous city to visit! Loved the tour too, pinned that island, it’s fab!
    xo

  5. You had me at bay view! Wonderful tour. If you ever want to see more curved island, have a look at the Chalon kitchens website. That’s where I found lots of them.

  6. You haven’t lived until you cross the Golden Gate Bridge on a super windy night in a 60s era VW~Whee-e, what a ride!!!

  7. WE had such a beautiful blue period on Sunday night. In a way it was erie.

    I did a beef roast in the crockpot today for my husband’s birthday and everyone thought it was the best they ever had. Sure made an easy meal.

    The snow and ice are melting. Will be great to have it gone.

  8. I love the home but the views – oh my word – the views! I wouldn’t care what the home I lived in looked like if it had those views. San Francisco is one magical city. Great tour!

  9. Oh My Word!! Gorgeous!!!! Those views are AH-MAZ-ING! Looking at the house in the first picture one would never think it would have those views.

    I love SF. It’s been a very long time since we’ve been, but we pretty much did all the touristy stuff too, minus the Golden Gate Bridge. There’s so many pinnacle pics in this post I don’t know where to begin :).

  10. Oh, those chandeliers…oh!! What an absolutely gorgeous home…move in ready (I luv orange and yellow!) franki

  11. Beautiful home and tour. Those views are something! The views reminded me of the movie “Just Like Heaven” with Reese Witherspoon and Mark Ruffalo, based in San Francisco. Have you seen it? It is a chick flick, but very cute, and Reese’s movie home is gorgeous!

    I went to San Francisco, several years ago, and sadly did not know I should tour the Winchester Mystery House. I did get to Napa Valley-which was so amazingly beautiful and over to Sausalito, where I could easily live! Just beautiful!

    Thank you for the fun tour!

    • I want to do a “movie tour” of that apartment…it was adorable! The Winchester Mystery House is in San Jose but I guess that’s not that terribly far away because we saw it on the way to San Francisco, if I’m remembering correctly. It really is an interesting place and the wood carving inside are gorgeous. Again, If I’m remembering correctly, she loved daisies and lot of the woodwork has daisies carved in it. Many of the windows are Tiffany! It’s beautiful inside, and just a little quirky.

    Beautiful San Francisco- just love that city. We used to live not too far when my husband went to Stanford for his 2 Masters. Great house just could not live with the crazy orange colors. Master Bedroom needs redecorating. What a great home and location. Thanks for the sharing the cute photos of you. Looks like you had a fun time.

  13. What a beautiful tour Susan and you look wonderful! The house is stunning, wow! The grand decor is fabulous. You are so nice to share it with us. I love San Francisco but haven’t been there! The views are to die for, my goodness, I could easily live in that palace, lol!!!
    Hugs,
    FABBY

    Susan !!!!! THANK you soooo much for such a sweet escape from my Va – again – snowy – winter – whatever- window view and helping me to stay focused on my “To View list” (San Francisco , Yosemite)
    I know, spring is “just around the corner” – but our groundhog is tiered too – he comes out just to take a breath of fresh air – aaarrrggghhh no good signs…
    LoL Dani & Mr. Teddy

    P.S. Hopefully the groundhog is a youngster and not so much experienced about the weather forecast…

  15. lol Well, Dani, our groundhog here in Atlanta said it would be an early spring so spring must be about to hit any day now. :)

  16. I’ve been to SF several times but never tire of seeing such great views. While the home is quite huge, each room seems so livable and inviting. Thanks for finding and sharing; a nice respite from the weather.

  17. When did they say I could move in?? :) We have been through quite a few times, but always en route to L.A.
    You know they say never believe everything you see? Well after hearing so much about the *Golden Bridge*, when we emigrated we decided to go to L.A. and across same bridge. It was a foggy day and up through the mist came this old brown looking bridge, I was so disappointed!!

  18. Juanita in OH says:

    These homes are outstanding journey’s for me, and the photos are wonderful. My sister and b-i-l went to the Winchester house last year. After they told us about it I wanted to go so badly. TFS the joy each day.

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment!
