Home of the Week: Meg Ryan’s Former Victorian Home

In our newest ‘Home of the Week‘ we move from a lovely penthouse in Chicago to a beautiful Victorian home in the heart of San Francisco.

This beautiful home is the embodiment of the Queen Anne Victorian architecture that San Francisco has become famous for. According to California Home, it was designed by Samuel Newsom, whose other remarkable works include the Napa Valley Opera House and the Oakland City Hall. One look inside or around this historic home and you’ll realize why Hollywood royalty like Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid decided to call this (amazing) house their home for so many years.

The Pacific Heights property built in the 1880s features 6 sizable bedrooms with wonderful views, and a master suite with a walk-in closet grand enough to guarantee you’ll never have to disagree about closet space again! The home also has 6.5 bathrooms, 6 custom carved fireplaces, a bar and a three-car garage. The extremely bright and airy Queen Anne style home has several versatile outdoor terraces accessible from different rooms across all levels of the home – making it perfect for entertaining family and close friends.

The $8.9 million gem has phenomenal views of the bay and San Francisco from all major rooms. The one-of-a-kind home is the best of both worlds – it is located right in the city, but it also gives you privacy, a sense of peace and some of San Francisco’s finest views. When you take all of this into account along with the custom design work and high-end modern appliances and amenities – this is without a doubt a home that lets you live like a star.
