While we were in the neighborhood looking for a parking spot, we drove by the home pictured below, and while driving by, for whatever reason, it caught my eye and I thought to myself “That’s Rather Lovely…” so I drove around the block again and took a picture.
The home is in the 2900 block of Washington St. and according to the tax records it is a 2 unit building with total building square footage of 2,840 square feet. It appears to have been in the same family for quite a while given that the annual tax bill for the building is a meager $2,464, and the only transaction noted in the tax record was a 2010 transfer from an individual to a family trust. Tax records also indicate it was built in 1900, which means a trip to the water department would be in order if you wanted to know the actual construction date.
It is located pretty much directly across the street from the Waldorf school of San Francisco, which certainly brings some traffic to the street (but you can be sure none of those cars will have a TV mounted in the back seat of the car, although that is a story for another day entirely).
Do you know anything else about this rather lovely Pacific Heights building? Know of a home that you think is rather lovely in SF? Share away in the comments below, and we’ll see if we can make this a regular 2012 feature.
