Do you think your last step was a dramatic one? Try This: On Sunday, a 139 year old Victorian house was trucked through the streets of San Francisco in one piece.

The six-bedroom home that was originally located at 807 Franklin Street has been relocated to its new home at 635 Fulton St., just blocks away. The San Francisco Chronicle reported that “up to 600 viewers” watched their trip.

The actual transport of the house from Franklin to Fulton began at around 7:17 a.m. and took about an hour. Bring the house from the truck to the actual property; however, it was a day-long affair. Interior designer Noz Nozawa (a 2020 House Beautiful Next Wave designer) took a photo from below around 5 p.m. when the crew was still hard at work.

“I felt like watching the history of San Francisco go down,” she told House Beautiful of the big move. While it was “incredibly exciting,” it could be a little nerve-wracking at times, she recalls: “There were crew members literally shooting under the house while it was on the truck!”

The house belongs to the San Francisco realtor Tim Brown, who bought it as a fixer-upper in 2013, according to Hoodline. After the move, it is now next to an old morgue. It is planned to convert the two buildings into one residential building with 17 residential units. Fortunately, the Victorian remains unscathed inside and out after his move. Nozawa added, “I assumed the house was a beautiful shell that had been destroyed inside [during the process]but the interiors that I could see through the windows retain much of their original charm. ”

A former apartment complex with 47 residential units is to be built on the property.
