The Painted Lady at the corner of Steiner and Grove just hit the market for $5,750,000. I visited 722 Steiner this week on broker tour and was quite impressed with the renovations, views and overall condition of one of San Francisco’s iconic properties.
There are seven Painted Ladies adjacent to Alamo Square Park, with an address range of 710-722 Steiner. 722 Steiner is actually the oldest of the group and is the former home of Matthew Kavanagh, who was the original builder of the Painted Ladies. Four of the seven changed hands from 1998-2020. 714 Steiner was listed for $2,750,000 in 2020. The fixer notably sold to tech exec Leah Culver for $3,550,000, and she’s been working on a rehab ever since.
722 Steiner sold off-market in 2014 for $3.1M and the current owners have done a beautiful job with their renovations. I had seen the house in 2014 and it felt like a time capsule, charming as it was. The current floor plan is very functional, and the home has great eastern-facing views. Here are a few interior shots that I took:
The kitchen is all modern and is adjacent to a living area:
The top floor is set up like an office, with a full bath and City Hall views:
My favorite room was the upper front bedroom, with its curved windows and lovely park outlooks:
Seeing homes like this as part of my job is a real treat.
