Once home to comedic legend and cinematic icon Meg Ryan, star of When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless in Seattle, and her then-husband, Dennis, this Queen Anne Victorian hits the market for a cool $19,950,000.

Ryan’s former abode, which dates to 1889, sits atop Pacific Avenue and comes with five bedrooms, six bathrooms, and 7,050 square feet, with an elevator reaching all four floors.

The Samuel Newsom–designed home, though renovated in 2018, still comes with period details, like the gray-and-white facade and the decorative molding and millwork on the first floor.

After its recent renovation, care of designer Nicole Hollis, new additions include floor-to-ceiling windows, which capture views of the Bay (including Alcatraz); floral-print wallpaper in the powder room; walnut flooring; and marble accents galore.

There’s also a wine cellar, a master bathroom soaking tub overlooking the aforementioned Bay, and a couple of outdoor terraces with fire pits to round out the luxe feel of this deliriously delightful pre-quake home.

Ryan and her actor husband lived in the house in the 1990s, which she purchased shortly after filming When a Man Loves a Woman in San Francisco. The couple only lived here for a few years before selling it. The house was also used for Pottery Barn and Design Within Reach catalog shoots.

The listing is through Neill Bassi of Sotheby’s International Realty.
