The two-storey home moved from 807 Franklin Street to 635 Fulton Street.

The house’s journey has been planned for years, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. 

“The site at 807 Franklin Street is to become a 48-unit, eight-story apartment building, while the transported Victorian will be anchored at 635 Fulton Street and converted to seven residential units,” the paper wrote.

According to the San Francisco Historical Society, it was the first time in nearly 50 years that such a move has taken place in the city and that it was a costly operation, which came down to about $400,000 for the broker and the owner.
