Morgan owned this house at 2225 Divisadero, as well as the one next door at 2229 Divisadero. She acquired and remodeled both between 1923 and 1930. In fact, the two are connected via a closet between the two buildings, but the through-way is currently sealed shut.

While striking period details are scattered throughout the architect's former home, the Pac Heights pad has been updated to modern standards. According to Curbed, the house is designed as a "B" classification, meaning that the home is "potentially historic."

Both this crib and the one next door at 2229 Divisadero were listed for sale around the same time. The latter, which was listed for $1.649 million in late March, has apparently already sold since the public listing no longer exists.

A view of the master bedroom (it's one of two bedrooms in the single-family home), which <a href="http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2012/04/06/RE261NVJPL.DTL" target="_blank">SFGate</a> reports was used as Morgan's work room.
