Victorians in San Francisco - pastels!

By
Real Estate Agent with Compass CA DRE# 01215160

Several weeks ago I posted pictures of various Victorian houses I walked by on a morning walk and asked which color appealed the most. (You can read that post and see pictures here.)

Grant Schneider said he'd like to see some pastels, so -- here you go, Grant. I spotted these yesterday as I walked along Baker Street on my way home from an appointment.

Beauty is all around us; we just need to open our eyes.

Is it safe to say, ask Lottie, and you shall receive? 

Beautiful Pastels, Clean glass windows, and the American Flag. Now that's a great slice of the American Pie. Lottie, your photograph is absolutely gorgeous! I have a feeling, you never get tired of what you see in beautiful San Francisco.

San Francisco has some of the most beautiful Victorians (Painted Ladies), I've seen.  I'm glad the city works to preserve them.

Myrl Jeffcoat - my memory tells me that the renaissance in many of the old Victorian houses began in the 1970s and 1980s when moving out of an urban area started to become valued. Lots of work entailed in maintaining these lovely places.

So many different styles of architecture here in San Francisco, various Victorian (Queen Anne, Italianate-which I believe these are; stick) Edwardian, Mediterranean style, Moorish, and on it goes. Every decade since 1906 has it's unique style, Sheila Anderson

Lottie these are beautiful unique homes.  You do not find this kind of craftsmanship in newer homes.

Oh, and these are gorgeous too, Lottie! We have a small Victorian community here and there is a pink one that I am in love with! Funny but, I would NEVER had a pink house but, that one just screams at me every time I drive through the community!

Victorian houses can pull off colors with better results than many other style homes, Debe Maxwell, CRS A pink suburban rancher would look bizarre, but an urban Victorian is another story.

Good morning, Roy Kelley - with the Irish blood in me (paternal grandmother was a Kelley) I had better wear green when appropriate! Hope your day was full of fun.
