SF's famed 'Princess Diaries' home hits the market for $8.9 million
SAN FRANCISCO - A historic San Francisco home, featured in "The Princess Diaries," has hit the market for $8.9 million.
The 100-year-old home is one of the most aesthetic in San Francisco, according to Steven Mavromihalis, the real-estate agent handling the listing.
The 4,599-square-foot home was designed by famed architect August Headman in 1923.
It has become well-known, however, as the place where "Princess Diaries" character Mia Thermopolis, played by a young Anne Hathaway, attended a fictitious school in the 2001 film.
The home, located at 2601 Lyon Street is at the intersection of San Francisco's Pacific Heights and Cow Hallow neighborhoods. It was built on a plot that was along the inside of the former eastern wall of the Presidio.

The home was previously owned by former San Francisco Giants owner Bob Laurie.
The current owners have lived in the home for more than a decade. When they bought it, their daughter, who is currently in college, recognized it as "The Princess Diaries" home, according to Mavromihalis.
"Dreams do come true," Mavromihalis said.
