Property Porn: Armistead Maupin's Home Hits the Market for Less Than $2 Million

By


It may not be 28 Barbary Lane, but as the longtime home of one of San Francisco's most beloved authors, it's pretty damn close. 

Tucked away in the underrated neighborhood of Parnassus Heights—where, just around the corner, the wide brick lane Evergreen leads directly into Sutro Forest—bestselling novelist and San Francisco's own Armistead Maupin once laid pen to paper in this very home to bring us the iconic tales of Mrs. Madrigal, Mary Ann, and Michael. Well, bookworms can rejoice, because this three-level piece of literary history is now on the market, and with a not-so-outrageous price tag. 

Originally built in 1907, this three-bedroom, two-bath home offers enough tranquility to please any aspiring writer. First, enter through your secluded front gate into an open, low-maintenance garden and walk up the stairs to take in views from your sun deck. The inside holds a fully updated kitchen, spacious living room, and dining room. You can entertain literati friends on your landscaped garden patio, where you'll fire up the built-in Lynx barbecue-rotisserie grill. 

Upstairs, extensive downtown and Bay views stretch all the way to Tiburon and Angel Island. The third level holds an additional bedroom, perfect for a second master suite or retreat to get those creative juices flowing. Could you be the next Maupin?
