Sitting on the corner of Scott and Grove, this big ol’ lovable lug of an Edwardian, born in 1901, overlooks Alamo Square Park. Sure, it’s neither as ostentatious nor as famous as its neighbors, the Painted Ladies, but what this abode lacks in postcard-perfect fame, it makes up for in loads of charm and color care of HSH Interiors.

Featuring six bedrooms, four and a half baths, and roughly 5,745 square feet, 701 Scott comes with a grand foyer, a formal dining room, paneled walls, period stained-glass windows in the renovated kitchen, a walk-in closet so gorgeous and spacious it might ruin your day, and views of the aforementioned park.

One would be remiss not to point out the whimsical selections of wallpaper, including the library-themed paper along top-floor hallway. Other design goodies: a teal-drenched bedroom, toile in the kitchen dining room, and powder room walls commissioned mural by artist Victor Reyes.

Color is back, folks. Big time. Soak it in.

A bit of background on the Krafft name: Most notably, the German-born architect designed the historic Hellman-Heller Mansion, built in 1902 as a wedding present for the Wells Fargo founder’s daughter. Krafft also helped build the James C. Flood Mansion, Rosslyn Hotel, the St. George Apartments at Tenderloin, and the St. Paulus Evangelical Lutheran Church.

Asking for 701 Scott is $6,300,000.
