Located on Rossi Avenue, a small stretch of street sandwiched between Turk and Anza in Lone Mountain, this circa-1937 Spanish-Mediterranean home is asking $2.075 million.

Featuring three bedrooms, two and one half bathrooms, and 2,810 square feet, 30 Rossi comes with tiled steps leading to the front door, arched windows in the living room, hardwood flooring, separate dining and breakfast rooms, a curved staircase with wrought iron banister, and more.

But of particular delight? The bathrooms. Yes, the loos. All three lavatories come decked out in their original tile work in shades of beige, dusty rose, and lemon chiffon. One of them even has a shower alcove. Lovely. Why on Earth homeowners rips out these 1930s-era tiled bathrooms in favor of all-white, antiseptic monstrosities is anyone’s guess. (Is it worth it just to have a soaking tub? Are the stakes really that high?)

The red-painted lattice work on the upstairs terrace is also noteworthy. Same goes for the backyard, understatedly manicured for entertaining, with an orange tree.

In all, a refreshing break from Victorian overload. The listing is through Grant Edward Beggs of Sotheby’s International Realty.
