707 Broderick St, NoPa

1,980 square foot gently remodeled Queen Anne Victorian. Last sold for $445.5K 1988. Market value is about $2.2 million.

This photogenic beauty whose construction dates to 1891, according to its water connection documents is nestled amongst one of two rows of Cranston and Keenan Queen Anne tower houses that face each other along the 700 block of Broderick.

The exterior is graced with a delicate turret, rounded walls flanking the gable window, fish-scale shingling facing the upper floors and tower, and a full-faced flamboyantly carved sunburst at the peak. Foliate corner panels enliven the front porch entry, whose arch is echoed in the lovely curved balcony and balustrade above it. This is supported by a fan-shaped structure reminiscent of the Gothic Revival style

A second floor panel is decorated with applied foliate curlicues and a fancy central cartouche, above which is located a dentil molding that also repeats around the base of the roof. (excerpted from the Victorian Alliance of San Francisco NoPA House Tour HERE)
