Normally, you’d expect a home with only a one-car, tuck-under garage to be steeply discounted.

Except in this case, the homes that come with the less-than-ideal garages** are the “Painted Ladies” in San Francisco, a series of Victorian Homes in Alamo Square with spectacular views of the downtown skyline (pictured above).

Most recent selling price: $3.1 million, in 2014.

My daughter wanted to check out these homes when our family visited SF this Summer.

**Best guess is that the garages are actually tandem — that is, two-car, with one stall immediately in front of the other.
