See inside this 1900s firehouse that is now a home

Sound the alarms, because you won't want to miss this historic firehouse. - Alycia Lucio,


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.

Every room of the home is well-lit and offers an almost gallery-like flair. 

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.”

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.

"What’s most interesting is the transitional design,” Nolan says. 

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. 

One of the home’s firehouse bells remains inside.  

A second staircase brings guests up to the second floor. 

The third floor consists of three bedrooms and two baths, while the master suite encompasses the fourth floor and features a private outdoor terrace.

The home’s stunning master bathroom.

What makes this home priceless, according to Nolan, is the fact that you’ll “own a piece of history.”

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.”
