On this comprehensive combo tour, led by a representative from San Francisco Heritage, you will embark on a two-hour walking tour of eastern Pacific Heights and view examples of San Francisco’s diverse architecture.  Architectural styles include several lovely Victorian homes situated on the typical narrow lots of the 19th century, featuring such details as original wrought iron fences, round and hexagonal towers, and rinceau frieze bands of wreaths. Also included are palatial homes of the early 20th century. You will see the stunning ‘’sugar palace,” built for sugar magnate, Adolph Spreckles and his wife, Alma, in 1915. Designed by architect George Applegarth in the French Baroque style, it features intricately wrought metal balconies and two-story Corinthian columns. Also on the tour is the grand 1915 Phelan Mansion, designed by Charles Weeks.

You will also have the opportunity to tour inside the Haas-Lilienthal House is a Queen Anne-style Victorian, and was completed in 1886. It is the only intact private home of the period that is open regularly as a museum, complete with authentic furniture and artifacts. The House has elaborate wooden gables, a circular corner tower and luxuriant ornamentation and recently was awarded National Treasures status by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Our tour will highlight the ongoing conservation efforts for the house.
