Renovation overload got you down? Feast your pupils on this rare treat: a circa-1927 home that has not (yet) been revamped to death. Here you’ll find color galore, a kitchen combining new and old elements, and contemporary woodwork mingling with period details like stained glass and iron window grills.

This top-floor unit shows you that, indeed, a remodel can be done while keeping the home’s original integrity intact.

Featuring two beds and two baths, 3011 Van Ness won’t turn off the charm. Most noteworthy are the original murals in the hallway. Also of note, the Batchelder tile fireplace, the fireplace, and—sigh—that classic bathroom with original tile work and a tub large enough to feel lost at sea.

Asking is 2,298,000.

Correction: The hand-painted murals, while stunning in their own right, are not from the the Panama–Pacific International Exposition as previously noted. The article has been updated.
