Love Where You Live: San Francisco

What’s beyond that Victorian facade? Bay windows and glittering cityscapes, secret gardens and rooftop decks, original molding and wainscoting, cozy breakfast nooks and awe-inspiring staircases. San Francisco knows romance is about mystery, and you never know what you’re going to find when you pull back the curtain on one of its character-filled homes.
