San Francisco’s Painted Ladies and Neighbors

When we were in San Francisco, one of the things I really wanted to see was the row of Victorian houses at 710–720 Steiner Street, better known as The Painted Ladies.

I didn’t even care that it was drizzly outside.

Here you can see the San Francisco skyline in the background.

And again in this closeup of the green house on the corner.

And the place on the adjacent corner. I can’t get over how big it is.

Details on the gray house.

This one needs a little work, but it’s still so beautiful.

Love this yellow one.

Another green house. Aren’t they just so charming?

I think this might be my favorite. Smaller than the others, but so perfect with those red steps.

Last look from Alamo Square Park across the street. The Painted Ladies were built between 1892 and 1896 by developer Matthew Kavanaugh.

Great weekend, everyone.

    I first saw the painted ladies when Ryan was 4 years old. He was not impressed. I was. They really are fantastic beauties. I can only imagine living in one . . . but aren’t you glad (like I am) the maintenance & upkeep on these fabulous creations belongs to someone else ?!?

    Absolutely charming!

  3. They are so beautiful thanks for sharing.

  4. These homes are so elegant and stately. They remind me a bit of Rainbow Row in Charleston.
    I like all the windows — cool sizes and shapes. They must let in a lot of light.

    I loved these so much when I was there. And you know what – I stood in front of the one with the red steps admiring it for a long time. The steps, however, were not red yet. They must have renovated it. Lovely photos.

  6. Wow what beautiful houses! Can’t believe they are so old! they are amazing!
