Dream Home: A Converted Firehouse With A Fire PoleS

If you were anything like me growing up, you dreamt about living in a firehouse just so you could have a fire pole to slide down. This San Francisco townhouse is the house I dreamt about. I'm so moving here.

The five level condo has 3-bedrooms and 3.5-baths in 3,173 square feet. But who really cares about that? It's a converted firehouse that used to house Engine #40 for godsakes!

The owners smartly left some of the original firehouse charm during the renovation: from the outside, you can clearly see the original firehouse doors and in the inside, there's the original fire pole tucked into the living room. I'd never, ever take the stairs to go downstairs if I lived here.

The condo is in Cole Valley and will cost the lucky future homeowner a cool $1,895,000. [8 Carmel via Curbed SF]
