No. 2661 Clay Street is a charming Victorian home located on a very special block overlooking Alta Plaza Park. This detached home enjoys abundant natural light and vistas from north and south exposures and has interiors complimented by high ceilings, deep crown molding, bay windows, tall doorways and beautifully polished hardwood floors throughout. A jewel box in the true sense of the word! And what a location.

HIstory of the House
This vintage and its six immediate neighbors are described in "Here Today-San Francisco's Architectural Heritage," by the Junior League of San Francisco, Inc., Chronicle Books, 1978, Pages 32-33:

"An unusually fine group of frame row houses is 2637-2643, 2649, 2655, 2661, 2667 and 2673 Clay Street; all built in the early 1870's, all with similar essentially Italianate, stylistic characteristics, suggesting that they were not only built at the same time, but by the same contractor. The use of redwood may be partially responsible for their preservation, but much of the credit must go to owners who have joined together to maintain these houses in mint condition."

The house is also referenced in "Gables and Fables-a Portrait of San Francisco's Pacific Heights" by Anne Bloomfield and Arthur Bloomfield, Heyday Books, Berkeley, CA, 2007, Pages 262-264:

"The group of Victorian houses facing Alta Plaza Park in the 2600 block of Clay Street have been known for forty years at least as 'Clay Street Block,' a special seal of approval in light of the fact the houses have been constantly well maintained, a veritable fashion show in the best taste demonstrating how Victorians can be beautifully preserved."
