Storied home keeps an eye on the past—at least for now

Featured in former San Francisco Chronicle columnist David Talbot's book Season of the Witch and also making an appearance in a 1988 episode of This Old House, famed 1915 Oak maintains a bushel of period details to accompany its contemporary updates.

There’s a lot to absorb, so let’s dive in, shall we?

First off, this Queen Anne Victorian is a pre-quake affair, boasting four levels. The facade is downright swoonworthy. And the interiors, though at times a mishmash of styles, is a sight to behold. Ornate details from its circa-1900 roots, like the staircase brass lamp and entryway fretwork, offer a peek into a bygone era.

Featuring three beds, three and a half baths, and 3,633 square feet, this abode comes with stained glass, a stone gas fireplace in the kitchen, a heated gazebo and an iron spiral staircase in the yard, an au pair unit, a wine cellar, and more.

Not many of these specimens appear on the market these days. And if they do, they’ve fallen victim to a contractor’s pen.

Take, for example, one of Haight-Ashbury’s most stunning properties, the ”Winter” Queen Anne of the famous “Four Seasons” Victorians. Pleas for the new owners to keep the property as-is fell upon deaf ears, sadly; the home was reportedly gutted shortly after purchase in 2016. Alas.

Last sold in 2016 for $2,900,000, 1915 Oak returns asking $2,995,000.
