Webster House

In today’s Chronicle:

Known as the Webster House – named after its original owner, Forty-Niner John Nelson Webster – the 155-year-old dwelling is the oldest structure in the city. Designed and fabricated in New York in the early 1850s by the architect Andrew Jackson Downing, it was disassembled, loaded aboard a sailing vessel and shipped around Cape Horn to San Francisco in 1854.

And … it is for sale 🙂

The 17-room Webster House at 1238 Versailles Ave., now a bed and breakfast with second-floor quarters for the owners, is on the market at $1,795,000, offered by brokers Ellen Anderson and Linda Harrison of Sotheby’s International Realty in San Francisco.
