What Houzz contributors are saying:

I am crazy about this California Victorian renovation. To tour the inside, check out this ideabook.
The house is one block down from Buena Vista Park and has spectacular city views from the upper level. The rear kitchen and master bedroom, where most of the work was done, have more limited views to the garden and neighborhood beyond.

Expand your vision of the "homestead." Even if you live in a city or don't like to garden, anyone can freeze and can fresh, seasonal food from the farmer's market. Widen your perspective and the range of changes you can make right where you are.Tell us: What do you love about where you live? What do you find is easier or harder about going green in your area?

8. Combine methods for the most effective search. Search online via Craigslist and similar sites, or contact a local real estate agent who handles rentals — but don't forget to hit the pavement, too. Even today there are plenty of landlords who rely on a simple sign posted in the window, a scrap of paper tacked up in the local café or word of mouth to rent their units. So keep your eyes and ears open wherever you go.

3. Buena Vista Residence, Schwartz and ArchitectureHistorical homes often fail to provide for modern amenities — such as a functional kitchen. This is not surprising, given how we now cook far differently then when the homes were originally built. This San Francisco Victorian was no different, requiring an upgrade to its outdated kitchen.
