This small wooded pedestrian lane, which was featured in Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City and rechristened Barbary Lane, Macondray Lane is one of the city’s most adorable streets. And it’s a red-letter day whenever a rare offering on the darling strip hits the market.
Featuring one bedroom and one bathroom, 62 Macondray Lane sits on the second floor of a circa-1907 Edwardian. The cozy pad comes with hardwood floors, crown molding, vintage light fixtures, updated bath and kitchen, and more.
This is, for many, the quintessential San Francisco home—or at least what one thought San Francisco might be like prior to making the move. The exceedingly charming Macondray Lane entrance, replete with rickety wooden gate, almost makes up for the shared laundry. and lack of parking.
No matter, this pad is noteworthy in many ways—especially its price tag. Asking is $797,000.
