Built for John Nightingale, an early San Francisco pioneer, this Eastlake-style home was named San Francisco Landmark 47 in 1972. The property, known as the Nightingale House, also was the residence of San Francisco artist Jo Hanson, who died in March 2007. The restored property has multiple fireplaces, hardwood floors, 12-foot ceilings and many large rooms that are flexible enough for many remodeling options. There’s a lower level with a second one-bedroom unit with a kitchen and a bathroom and a versatile courtyard. The property is two blocks from a Muni stop at Market and Laguna streets.
