UNITED STATES – A trip of 6 blocks. In San Francisco, a 139-year-old Victorian house was relocated a few streets, thanks to a large team of engineers and construction workers.
As you can see in the video above, the typical San Francisco mint-green house was loaded early Sunday, February 21 on a flatbed truck and moved from its Franklin Street lot to its new address on Fulton Street.
Passers-by gathered to witness this unusual sight and take photos, as the 465-square-meter house began its journey to its new location. On several occasions, construction workers had to cut branches so that the house could pass through some of the city’s tree-lined streets.
Luxury real estate
The house, in need of massive repairs, was on land its owner sold to a developer, who plans to build apartments, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. The cost of moving the six-bedroom house over six blocks would have cost about $ 400,000.
With 40 million people, California is the most populous and wealthiest state in the United States. San Francisco was one of the cities at the top of the Barnes City Index in 2020 at 8th place in 2020. If it rose in 2021 to 29th place, it remains well placed among the most attractive cities for large fortunes wishing to invest in luxury real estate.
