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.
