Update: Inexplicably, this gorgeous Victorian specimen has yet to find a buyer, despite landing on the market in May. Which is why its original asking price has taken a bit of a pruning: The home at 5380 Shafter, initially offered at $3,900,000, is now asking $3,395,000.

Billed as a “landmark residence” in the realtor’s ad, this pre-quake, circa-1890 Victorian comes with loads of curb appeal, period details, and restoration work that San Francisco contractors should be forced to learn.

“Working with the renowned architect Douglas Burnham (Envelope A+D) and designer Roy McMakin,” notes the listing, “the current owners have transformed this historic, hard-to-find Victorian into a comfortable, highly functional home with formal touches throughout.”

Featuring four bedrooms, two and a half baths, and 3,506 square feet, 5380 Shafter comes with arched windows, revived facade, wood detailing, a sun room, a bathroom that once served as a porch, and more.

The home three-story home also sits on an ample 11,000-square-foot corner lot consists, which sits back from the street in the middle of trees, flowering bushes, and a sundry of assorted greenery. Stunning.

Asking is $3,900,000.
