If you’re a fan of “Princess Diaries” (who isn’t?!) and you have $6.9 million handy, check out Firehouse No. 44 in San Francisco. The four-bedroom, 6,045-square-foot ode to modernism comes with plenty of history to spare.

Built in 1909, the firehouse for Engine Company No. 44 originally housed cavalry of horses and men. In 1959, artists Mark Adams and Beth Van Housen bought the property. Since then, the home has been revamped and remodeled a few times. However, plenty of vintage firehouse goodness remains.

“The house has an art quality to it,” says Goodman. “It’s definitely a great house for a collector. The lighting design and walls are designed to hang fabulous art.” Designed by Luminae Souter Associates, the home’s lighting won the GE Edison Award of Merit for outstanding design.
Although the home has been around for over a century, there’s nothing old-fashioned about it.
“It has a very architectural and modern element,” Goodman says, noting the geometric lines throughout, the angle of the elevator shaft, and the guest bathroom. Concrete walls collide with stark white walls, heightening the home’s drama.
