San Francisco Redevelopment Agency

Landmarked Martin O'Dea House. 2,880 square foot Stick style Victorian with Eastlake ornamentation built in 1885. Last sold for $850K in 2006. Current estimates value the property at about 4.1 million.

In 1973, some Victorian residences were listed on the National Register of Historic Places and moved to save them from
San Francisco Redevelopment Agency slum clearance. These residences were among the first NRHP listings in
San Francisco. Prior to 1973, only fourteen San Francisco properties had been listed on the NRHP.
