Coveted Crib: Firehouse No. 44

Here's something to ignite your envy. San Francisco firehouse Chemical Engine House 44, which was originally built in 1909 (when horses led fire "carriages") and served as a firehouse until 1959, has recently undergone an extensive renovation, transforming the historic structure into a modern masterpiece. The four-bedroom, four-and-two-half-bath home in SF's Noe Valley neighborhood is on the market for $5,175,000. The house includes four floors of living space, an observatory tower, a wine cellar, and a tasting room, all centered around a remarkable industrial spiral staircase and elevator atrium.

Want to hear about the firehouse's décor and designers, and see photos? Prepare to swoon, my friends.

Teutonic Construction and interior designer Josephine Fisher flawlessly created a clever mix of historical architectural details like hefty original copper doors, an original oak call box, a rusty old fire hydrant, and a reclaimed lumber staircase, with modern comforts like a gourmet loft kitchen, heated tile floors, surround sound, and two contemporary fireplaces. The landscaped gardens are an ideal city escape, and the roof terrace and observatory tower offer unparalleled views.

Glad to see there is a 2-car garage for that price. Finding parking in Noe Valley - or anywhere in SF - can be a nightmare. Cool spot.

Oh and in the few pictures of the room off the wine cellar, that cream rug with a brown line grid looks just like one I saw for sale at Ikea this weekend for $49.

That place is fantastic. There is an old firehouse near where I live that has been converted and I am always on the lookout for when/if it will be for sale. Sadly, though the place is at the corner of crack and yuck (not the real street names of Shuter and Sherbourne)I'm sure it will go for well over a million since it is so close to downtown Toronto.
