Situated in the historic Alamo Square district, this home is the perfect marriage of Victorian aesthetics and modern amenities. The exterior has the hallmark characteristics of a Queen Anne Victorian, with continuous gable roof and gold facade ornamentation. As you enter the home, the volumes being expressed on the outside of the home are represented in the interior with large-scale entry complete with wide hallways and tall ceilings with bright skylights. The home's lovingly preserved century-old details including original wainscoting, white oak floors, brackets, moldings, and antique tile fireplaces welcome you into the space. The spacious master bedroom with en suite bathroom is a rare urban retreat while the second bedroom is airy and inviting.

He attended architecture school in Erfurt, Weimar and Berlin, and began his architectural practice in Berlin and Schlessing, where he designed railroad bridges and related masonry structures. He came to San Francisco in 1876 where he remained in practice until at least 1910. By the late 1880s he was known in San Francisco for having designed \"some of the best buildings erected here.\" Geilfuss was one of the foremost practitioners of the Victorian style of residential architecture - a style that incorporated Italianate, Gothic, Eastlake, and Stick elements - that has since become synonymous worldwide with 'historic San Francisco architecture'."  More Less
