Historic Quinn House on the Market for First Time in 35 Years

New, 7 comments

One of the Bayview's local landmarks has hit the market for under $1M. Built c.1870, the Quinn House at 1562 McKinnon was built for Mary Quinn and stayed in the family til 1958, making it one of the oldest buildings in the neighborhood. Rumor has it in the 1950s two Quinn sisters lived in the house on different floors, and when they got in a fight one of them repainted only her downstairs half of the house's exterior stopping under the second story window. Harsh, Quinn sister. The current owner has fixed the exterior paint, but the house is now on the market for the first time in 35 years and it could use a little updating (that kitchen is pretty insane, and not in a good way). With 5BR, 2BR, a massive yard, and unfinished attic, there's definitely lots of room to update - though the landmark status makes any exterior changes require Historic Preservation Commission approval. The house is listed at $899,000 - if you're interested, there are open houses from 2-4pm this weekend and next. · 1562 McKinnon Avenue, San Francisco [Red Fin]
