The firehouse home that Anne Hathaway's character "Mia" of "Princess Diaries" lived in, hit the market in the first week of October for $2.6 million. But just a month later, the residence's price tag has been discounted to $2.27 million.
Located at Brazil Avenue in San Francisco, the residence came up on the market last month for the first time since the city auctioned it to the owner in 1976. Before the auction, the residence was home to Engine Company 43.
The firehouse lay abandoned for quite a while before the owners bought it. They initially wanted the lot next door, but ended up buying the entire compound. They rented the firehouse out - after renovations - for several years too, according to the Zillow Blog.
"The sellers - my parents - bought it in 1976 when it had already been closed for a few years and fell on hard times. Most of the windows had been broken, pigeons had moved in and the department had removed the wonderful Victorian cast-iron spiral staircase, hoping to use it in a firehouse museum," Grace Shohet of Hill & Co. Real Estate, the listing agent of the house, was quoted by SFGate.
The residence has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Interiors of the house feature hardwood flooring, high ceilings and glass windows that offer ample views of the city.
Speaking of the combined lots and the home's interiors, Shohet said:
"The two units have served as a magnet for artists and artisans. Dancers from the Margaret Jenkins Dance Company were especially attracted to the room upstairs, with its high ceiling and springy wood floor."
The home also provides for a four-car garage.
The listing describes it as a "spectacular property" that allows for "a fantastic opportunity for units, live-work space, or your favorite tech start-up! Almost 4,800 interior square feet * , on a double lot, with parking for four (at least) and a 340 square foot * outbuilding, (originally the firemen's kitchen)."
