The Founder of Blue Bottle Coffee Lists a Stylish San Francisco Victorian For $3.85M

This 1894 Queen Anne Victorian was renovated by the same firm that designed Blue Bottle’s pared-down cafes.

The 1894 Queen Anne Victorian features an open floor plan that juxtaposes classic original features with cool modern elements—many of which are customized for the home.

Currently owned by Blue Bottle Coffee founder James Freeman and his wife Caitlin Williams Freeman, this San Francisco Victorian was remodeled in 2017, by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson—the same architects behind many of Blue Bottle’s cafes. Located in Alamo Square, the home has a clean, pared-down aesthetic with minimalist lines, blonde wood, and light surfaces.

The residence includes four bedrooms, a library, three-and-a-half bathrooms, a wine closet, and a bright office. There is also a two-car garage with interior access to the home and a private roof deck.

The architects preserved many of the home’s original elements—such as its colorful stained glass windows and elegantly carved Victorian fireplace. Modern additions include a wall of floating laminate bookshelves with exposed plywood edges and a WallyGro vertical garden. The current residents are also art collectors, and the home features murals painted by some of the local artists they know and love.
