Historic Celebrity Mansion on San Francisco’s “Postcard Row” Now Listed; Bonnie Spindler Represents Seller


San Francisco, CA – February 1, 2010 – One of the iconic “Painted Ladies” is now on the market. The elegant and historic Shannon-Kavanaugh House is the anchor home on San Francisco’s famous “Postcard Row” of picture-perfect Victorian mansions. Well-known as the home where the 80’s sitcom “Full House” was filmed, 722 Steiner is a landmark easily identified worldwide. Fittingly, Bonnie Spindler, the Victorian Specialist and number one agent citywide for Alamo Square, is the listing agent. Spindler is also Zephyr Real Estate’s All-Time Top Residential Sales Agent.

The asking price is just under $4 million; first showing is set for Sunday, February 7, 2010. “It’s as if the task of marketing this home was created for my specific specialties,” said Spindler. “I’m looking forward to finding the next guardian for this special home.”

The Shannon-Kavanaugh House is a lovingly restored 1892 Victorian mansion owned by Michael Shannon and built by Matthew Kavanaugh for his family. What started as a condemned building in a challenged neighborhood, has transformed into an impressive four-story property, in one of San Francisco’s hottest neighborhoods. The home features working gaslights, exquisite architectural details and several original stained-glass windows. The kitchen includes upscale Dacor and Bosch appliances. The house earns its keep through movies, TV shows, advertising, tours, guest accommodations and by hosting unique private parties, catered events, weddings, receptions and other special events.

A special champagne soiree will be held at the home from 6 to 9 PM on Wednesday, February 10th. Local San Francisco Realtors, high-end property owners and select neighborhood organizations are on the invitation-only guest list.
