Twenty One Buena Vista Avenue, San Francisco
Set among San Francisco’s city streets where the scenic neighborhoods of Buena Vista and the Haight come together is a regal, 120-year-old Queen Anne Victorian with a story unlike any other. Steeped in local history and reminiscent of a by-gone era, the grand 7,138 square-foot, 22-room, 6 bedroom, 6 bath residence spanning four levels has been brought up to today’s standards and brilliantly restored to its original splendor. The result is an epic combination, the delicate preservation of turn-of-century architecture intermingled with all of the modern amenities for extraordinary luxury living. History meets Luxury all in one. Panoramic views from upper levels and rooftop observation deck. Extraordinary breathtaking Bay and City views.
Adding to this magical setting is the 37-acre Buena Vista Park, one of city’s oldest “official” parks directly across the street from the residence. The park offers a refreshing retreat from urban life with plenty of recreational space, breathtaking views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands and a sweeping vista from Golden Gate Park all the way to the Pacific Ocean. Known for its complex structure and detailed embellishments, Victorian style became popular during Queen Victoria’s reign. In 1882, 21 Buena Vista was originally built with many of these architectural elements for Dr. Seeley F. Long and his family. Today the home’s rich, vibrant and colorful exterior continues to incorporate many elaborate characteristics from the “Painted Ladies” of the era, including intricate woodwork detail and the signature witches hat,” a cone shaped roof with a skinny peaked top that flares at the bottom.

His captivating redesign has brought an unabashed, fresh approach to this extraordinary historical residence that will stand the test of time for many years to come.
