Measuring approximately 1,600 square feet, this two-story Capp Street condo, which benefits from a recent renovation while maintaining its original period charm, lands on the market for a cool $1,795,000.

Featuring three bedrooms and one and one half bathrooms, 661 Shotwell still bears some of its Victorian-era details, including archways, crown moldings, hardwood flooring, pocket doors, and—swoon—its water radiator embossed with scrollwork and floral motifs. Gorgeous.

Mercifully, this Inner Mission home didn’t fall prey to an open-floor plan after its renovation. Speaking of which, the home’s new kitchen and bathrooms (dig that skylight and towel warmer in upstairs bath) have only helped add to this condo’s allure (say what you will about white subway tile wearing out its welcome, but we still love to see it, especially in a kitchen).

Of special note here is the staircase bearing a poem by Rumi, reading, “I am bewildered by the magnificence of your beauty, and wish to see you with a hundred eyes. I am in the house of mercy and my heart is a place of prayer.”

What an entrance.
