Known as the Charles Dietle House, this stellar Stick-Eastlake Victorian in Hayes Valley was originally designed by San Francisco architect Henry Geilfuss in 1878. It landed on the market in October for $6.4 million.
It now features a new asking price, boasting a hefty $1.3 million cut.
While this home is nothing short of glorious—featuring four-plus bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, and 6,950 square feet, it boasts a formal ballroom, dumbwaiter, winding staircase, an attic lounge, and period details—it is a registered landmark.
And buyers these days are a touch too renovation-happy, so gutting overhauls pose would prove problematic. (Thank God.)
Still, it’s a gorgeous home for someone who wants to keep its beauty intact. It’s now asking $5,195,000.
Kudos to the party responsible for the home’s re-staging, too. Stunning.
A bit of history on the home: After the Great Quake, the home escaped too much damage. It was then purchased by John DeMartini, a noted fruit/veggie commission merchant and one of the original directors of the Bank of Italy (known today as Bank of America).
