“If you love gazing at San Francisco’s Painted Ladies, their “older sister” is for sale.
Built in Queen Anne style, 818 Steiner is architecturally significant, even among Alamo’s Square’s plethora of such buildings. The home broke ground in 1899, built for wholesale grocer Louis Hartter, his wife Emily Geisel, and their five children. The family owned this property until the late 1950s.
The architects, Martens & Coffey, also designed notable neighboring homes, including 937 Steiner, 926 Grove, as well as homes on Hayes and Fillmore streets.
Today, “818 Steiner is a Painted Lady’s older sister,” co-listing agent Mollie Poe told SFGATE, referring to the fact that the home is both older and (at 6,000 square feet) larger than the typical Painted Lady. The three-story home has been substantially renovated, but original details abound both inside and outside this grand dame. There are multiple bedrooms, an au-pair suite, a gym, an art room, a wine room, among many additional amenities in this Painted Lady.”
