Whoa… A 139-year old Victorian house rolled through the streets of San Francisco on Sunday morning, February 21, 2021.

Thanks to KRON4 for sharing the video of the epic move. The historic home, known as the Englander House, was moved only a few streets away from 807 Franklin to 635 Fulton, next to a Victorian mortuary.

The entire home was loaded up and traveled slowly just 6 blocks away, moving 1 mile per hour, which cost about $400,000; now, that’s one costly move.

The Victorian home will be restored, and the now vacant lot will be home to a new apartment building with 48 housing units in an 8-story building, overlooking Hayes Valley and Jefferson Park.

See a cool time lapse of the move that was shared on Reddit below.
