Jensen Architects did quite a number on 1164 Fulton when they renovated the Alamo Square Victorian to polarizing fanfare. The look was 19th century in the front, 21st century in the back.

The circa-1900 home had fallen into major disrepair over the years. So much so that when it last sold in 2012, it cost less than a million dollars.

The current owners (an anonymous LLC) spent an estimated $450,000 redoing the home. And that gamble paid off.

Per SFAR MLS, it’s the most expensive single-family home ever sold in district (which includes Alamo Square, Hayes Valley, Lower Pacific Heights). Asking $7.3 million in February, it sold for $7.35 million, $50,000 over asking.

Contemporary design like a twisted Escher staircase, perforated skins of metal screens covering the windows, and living wall in the yard proved too tempting for Alamo Square’s newest resident. All of it hiding behind its original facade.

The house was sold by Neill Bassi of Sotheby’s International Realty.
