SOLD? Bernal Heights Home Where Janis Joplin Used to Party



There’s a home at 11 Wright Street for sale in the Santana Rancho subdistrict of Bernal Heights, where Janis Joplin was apparently a visitor:

This spacious 3 level home with high ceilings, features an open floor plan including a large living room with fire place, formal dining room, large custom kitchen and direct access to the decks. There are 2.5 updated bathrooms and 3 bedrooms with an option for a 4th. The decks and a brick patio overlook the scrumptious landscaped oasis garden, complete with in ground hot tub, and slate pathways. Stunning city views from upstairs, refinished wood floors, freshly painted, large garage, laundry, storage and much more!

Much to our delight the former owners of the house came by to pay us a visit. They owned the house from 1968 to 1976 and shared great stories and amazing photos of the house during that time.

This legendary photo of Janis Joplin was taken upstairs in the main bedroom.

Here’s that bedroom today:


Redfin tells us an offer on the home has already been accepted, with a sale pending.

  1. Wow, sad to see it stripped of all it’s soul and atmosphere inside, though.
