See this 108-year-old firehouse flipped into a stunning home

The idea of zipping down a fireman’s pole has captured the imaginations of children for decades. Now, the same architectural elements you fell in love with are available in a historic Noe Valley home — although you’ll have to settle for descending via a spiral staircase.

It's hard to believe there's a gorgeous home inside of this old firehouse.

Originally built in 1909 as the Engine 44 firehouse, this four-bedroom, five-bath Mission Revival is quickly heating up the market.

Priced at $5.75 million with Vanguard Properties, the four-story San Francisco dwelling blends the old with the modern, according to listing agent Frank Nolan.

The living room is incredibly spacious. We love the high ceilings.

Every room of the home is well-lit and offers an almost gallery-like flair. Auburn-toned hardwood flooring accents each level, including the stairs.

    Floor-to-ceiling windows provide a peek at the exterior patio from the living room, while additional glass detailing flows throughout — from the staircase railing to the loft overlook in the kitchen.

    Nolan notes that the prime location is a definite selling point for the 6,000-square-foot firehouse. “You’re walking distance to almost everything.”

The kitchen is cozy thanks to dark wood, but also has a modern twist.

“What’s most interesting is the transitional design,” Nolan says. There’s an intact custom metalwork spiral staircase, as well as original windows and a lookout tower, where “you can see over all the roofs of Noe Valley.”

Renovated in 2007 and redesigned by Jay Jeffers (one of the top designers in San Francisco), the home also includes a variety of modern upgrades. On the first floor is a media room and wine cellar. From the cellar, you can access a hardscaped rear courtyard with auxiliary shed.

Just imagine waking up to sweeping views of the city.

Take the elevator up to the second floor, where you’re greeted by a stunning island kitchen with gas range and granite countertops, as well as an adjacent open living and dining area.

We can't get over the big soaking tub in the master bathroom.
