A San Francisco Victorian may not be at the top of the list of realistic things you're looking for in a home, but I'd be willing to bet it's at the top of your "If Only..." wish list. What's more swoon-worthy than incredible architecture and gorgeous interiors (in a beautiful city, too!). If you need a quick daydream break, check out these five real Victorian homes for sale—even if you don't plan to buy one, you can still think wistfully about what your life would be like if you did.
If you think these homes are beautiful on the outside, wait until you see their interiors too (just click to flip the cards and see inside!).
