Nothing explains the true coziness of Bay Area housing better than seven strangers living together. The home featured in the third season of the now infamous reality TV show The Real World, located in San Francisco’s Russian Hill, is now on the market for $5.8 million.

We may be biased, but it’s been argued that the SF season was the most thought-provoking and worthwhile of them all. The household dealt with serious and timely issues for 1994, such as roommate Pedro Zamora’s HIV-positive status. Zamora and his partner also held the first on-air same-sex commitment ceremony during that season.

But enough with the 90s pop culture flashback — the home in question is 949-953 Lombard Street, a three-unit building located a block away from the most crooked street in the United States. Built circa-1925, the three-units encompass seven bedrooms and seven baths with a 1,500 square foot rooftop deck. The building was renovated ten years ago after a fire tore through in 2000.

Interior finishes include a hand-applied limestone exterior, kitchens with granite countertops, cherry wood cabinetry, marble bathrooms, Brazilian cherry wood floors and fiber wiring throughout the building. It also comes with a five-car garage with interior access.

Take note that the Real World social experimenters of yesteryear did not live in all three units, only 949 Lombard Street. When you’re ready to stop being polite and start getting real, then you can take a tour.
