Pristine Alamo Square Mansion Hits the Market

New, 3 comments


Hitting the market just yesterday, 701 Scott has the potential to make you seriously swoon. As long as you're into dark wood paneling, grand staircases, and awesome stained glass everywhere, that is. Built in 1900, it was designed for William H. Little of Woodin & Little (purveyors of "gasoline engines, windmills, tanks, pumps, pipe fittings, brass goods, horse powers, etc," in case you were wondering) by Julius Krafft. The MLS listing says the architect was T. Patterson Ross for some reason, but we're going to go with the Planning Department's citation to a 1901 issue of the Examiner that lists prolific early SF residential architect Krafft. With six bedrooms, four baths, and a separate servants quarters, this house definitely screams old school splendor. Perhaps you'd like to snuggle up to one of the five tiled fireplaces? Or cook a meal in the updated marble kitchen, complete with period-era oven hood? We'd probably just sprawl out on the insanely gorgeous herringbone hardwood floors – leave your shoes at the door, please. There's not a lot of backyard space, but Alamo Square is right across the street for all your green space needs. Apparently the Edwardian manse has only been in three families during its 113 years. If you'd like to be the fourth, it'll cost you $3,395,000.
