When this Castro Victorian renovation landed on the market in February, it caused a fuss, due in part to the fact that the original listing had it located in a fake neighborhood. (Dolores Park West doesn’t exist.) Castro naming issues aside—which you can read all about—this home polarized readers for another reason: its audacity.

After being purchased in 2014, the circa-1907 Victorian went through a major renovation from the studs up. The new look was bold—some say too bold—with unabashedly contemporary interiors spanning across five floors.

Featuring four beds and four and a half baths, 3847-3849 18th Street comes with such details as herringbone-patterned floors, a sculpted steel stairway, and an approximately 1,300-square-foot guest level with a private entrance. Overall, a surprisingly cohesive pad that, with respect to purists who cringe at Victorian decimation, at least dares to veer away from the antiseptic interiors so popular as of late.

After an original post-remodel asking of $11.85 million—and after new photos and new realtors—the new price has dipped to $9,400,000.
