There are actually more Edwardian-style homes in San Francisco than the famed Victorians. Unfortunately, this is because a multitude of Victorian houses were destroyed in the devastating 1906 earthquake and fire. Civilians were forced to rebuild their decimated city after the fact, and this period of re-growth just happened to coincide with the Edwardian period, named for King Edward VII, who was Queen Victoria’s son. Thus, countless Edwardian homes were constructed, and San Francisco became a largely Edwardian city.
The Edwardian period only lasted from 1901 to 1918, in comparison to the Victorian era which lasted from 1825 until 1901. The considerable difference in length makes the presence of Edwardian homes in San Francisco all the more impressive. A large number can be found in areas that were heavily rebuilt after the earthquake and fire, including SOMA, downtown, and the Mission.
Edwardian homes reflect widespread cultural tastes of the early 20th century. San Francisco began veering away from the ornamentation of the Victorian period, and it was trendy for the wealthy to build less ostentatious homes. Though some Edwardian homes, such as Queen Annes, may still exude a Victorian-like appearance, they are mostly simpler in decoration. The Edwardian period saw the re-emergence of handcrafted homes, and included arts and crafts, shingles, Tudor revival, Mission revival, and craftsman-style homes, among others.
A few criteria can help the average city dweller identify Edwardian homes. Most obviously, they don’t feature the embellishment of Victorians. In addition to being less ornate, Edwardians are often lighter in color because designers were not concerned with soot, given the invention of gas and electric lighting.
Architectural styles are distinct, but they can’t always be strictly sorted; this is another reason why San Francisco is so delightfully unique. A few famous examples of architectural amalgamations are the painted ladies of Alamo Square. They were built as Victorian homes, but they also have features of Edwardian homes. This is because they are classified as Queen Anne style, which is the only style that bridged the Victorian and Edwardian eras.
Homes in the grand, upscale Pacific Heights neighborhood deliver commanding views of the San Francisco Bay and the city below, with neighborhood hills rising from the Marina and running along an east-west ridge between the Presidio and Van Ness Avenue. When Hollywood wants to film a chase scene, Pacific Heights is where it comes for cinematic thrills.
Some of the oldest, grandest, and largest homes in the city can be found in highly affluent Pacific Heights, which features an ample stock of Victorians, Edwardians, Mission Revivals, and homes in the style of French chateaus. Some of the former baronial mansions now serve as elite private schools, including San Francisco University High School, Hamlin, Drew School, Town School For Boys, and Convent of the Sacred Heart (in the former Flood Mansion).
Pacific Heights has gorgeous parks, playgrounds, and, bounded by the Presidio, easy access to open space and miles of hiking, running, and biking trails. The main shopping district can be found on Fillmore Street, which runs north and south through Pacific Heights and is home to some of the city’s chicest boutiques and choicest restaurants.
Located on Pacific Avenue, 1770 Pacific sits between the Franklin and Van Ness corridors, providing fast and direct access to both north and south bound commuter routes, including convenient access to Peninsula-bound tech shuttles. For those commuting to the Financial District, Broadway is just one block away providing direct bus routes into the heart of the Central Business District.
Nothing less than an excellent location, stroll to nearby Polk, Union and Chestnut Streets and catch even more shops, cafes and restaurants. Scattered within you will also find numerous grocery stores, including Whole Foods at Franklin and California, Safeway in the Marina, and Molly Stones at Fillmore and California.
