A 139-year-old Victorian house was moved from its old location to a new address on a truck in San Francisco.

On Sunday, Feb 21, the Englander House, a historic building in the heart of the Golden City, was loaded onto a truck and moved from 807 Franklin St. to 635 Fulton St., San Francisco.

Videos and photos showed the beautiful green house moving to its new location six blocks away.

Phil Joy, a veteran house mover who oversaw the move, told the San Francisco Chronicle that moving the house, built in 1882, took several years to plan.

“We had to get 15 different city agencies to agree to this,” Joy said, according to the newspaper.

Tim Brown, a San Francisco broker who was the owner of the six-bedroom house, paid about $400,000 in moving costs and fees, the Chronicle reported.

Meanwhile, the Englander house will be combined into a 17-unit building with an old mortuary next door at its new location.
