Santa Cruz Italianate Victorian doesn’t mess too much with the past

It still has some of its original woodwork

An adorable slice of history is up for grabs in the Bay Area’s wackiest enclave. A bright and vicid circa 1883 Italianate Victorian lands on the market this week. And it’s a sight to behold for fans of Victoriana.

Coming in at four beds, three baths, and 2,309 square feet, 233 Van Ness Avenue comes with original woodwork, an 80-foot setback from the street, a tree-lined walk up, clawfoot tub, and pool.

While the structure has been updated over the years, it hasn’t undergone a drastic gutting like so many San Francisco Victorians as of late. (At least not yet. Fingers crossed.)

Last sold in 1997 for $345,000, it returns asking $1,300,000.
