It's not very often that we find a remodeled Victorian that we love, but the reimagined four-bedroom home at 2612 California Street fits the bill. The home has been transformed from a frumpy pastel yellow house into a modernized gray stunner while retaining much of the detail that made it special to begin with. According to its listing, the renovations were undertaken back in 2009 by a historic developer as his personal residence. The home changed hands in 2012, and now it's back on the market again and looking for $5.895 million.
Inside, the home has kept a carved wooden staircase, decorated fireplaces, and lots and lots of molding. Built-in shelving has been updated with glass shelves, and the kitchen is all new while still retaining an elegant feel with its copper sink and white cabinetry. The backyard is primarily a deck, with some shrubbery and bamboo scattered throughout. There is enough parking for two cars, although Alta Plaza Park and Fillmore Street are both within easy walking distance.
