Built in 1935 by noted architect Harold G. Stoner, who helped define much of the look of the the city west of Twin Peaks, this is the first time this stately home has landed on the public market since its Depression-era arrival. Renovated over the years, it lands on the market today for $3,288,888.

Featuring five beds, four and a half baths, and 4,138 square feet, 141 Junipero Serra comes with coffered and open beam ceilings, archways, interior iron gates, woodwork galore, two kitchens, and more. The interiors are a hodgepodge of different looks and eras, but the bones are still there.

The master bath still has its original tile work, which is both refreshing and fantastic to see. (For the love of all that is pure and good in this world, please keep colorful old tile work during renovations!)

Also of note, the backyard with fruit-bearing bushes, (above ground) hot tub, and—why not?—putting green.
