Meg Ryan's former San Francisco Victorian for sale

2602 Pacific Ave,, San Francisco

For sale: $8.995 million

This San Francisco Victorian was built in 1889 and has six bedrooms and fireplaces.

This quintessential San Francisco Victorian has had a couple of star turns. One-time happy couple Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid lived there in the 1990s. 

Homes like this historic Queen Anne are rare on the market, said listing agent Malin Giddings of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in San Francisco Pacific Heights.

"Our city is very unique in that old properties don't trade very often," she said. "Good houses don't trade often because they're so hard to find."

This San Francisco Victorian features water views from every floor.

In this case, the owner has died, and the home is on the market for the first time since 1995. It has six bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms and six fireplaces.

The 1889 home is wide compared with other homes in its style, and its location on Pacific Avenue offers water views from every floor. An elegant staircase runs up the center of the home. The kitchen opens up to a living area with a backyard view, and each level features large terraces with views of the city, mountains and the water.

The master bed and bath have a terrace and an oversize bathtub and a steam shower. At the top of the house, every nook and cranny is designed around an in-the-clouds sitting area with rooftop views of the city and water.

A grand staircase runs up the center of the home.
