Landmark Mission Revival-Style Home
Modeled after California's historic mission churches built by Spanish colonists in the 18th century, the Mission Revival home style reached the height of its popularity between 1890 and 1918. Today, we're taking a peek inside a perfectly preserved example of this iconic West Coast style.

Built in 1912, "The Pink House" still boasts many classic Mission Revival traits a century later: a red tile roof, quatrefoil windows and curved parapets. The main entrance leads to a handsome living room lined with walls of hand-hewn redwood. Past that, there's an absolutely breathtaking terrace with unobstructed views of Mount Tamalpais, the Sausalito harbor, the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco skyline.
Take a stroll upstairs, and you'll find four bedrooms, all connected to a glass-walled, view-side gallery. The luxurious master suite -- complete with a fireplace, a private terrace and a lavish marble bathroom with views of the Golden Gate Bridge -- occupies the entire top floor.
