A Turn-of-the-Century Mansion on Storied San Fran Street

New, 6 comments

Have a nomination for a jaw-dropping listing that would make a mighty fine House of the Day? Get thee to the tipline and send us your suggestions. We'd love to see what you've got.

Location: San Francisco, Calif.
Price: $8,850,000
The Skinny: Commissioned by "a prominent lawyer and San Francisco Mayoral candidate" in 1894, this gray-and-white Victorian occupies a prized corner on one of San Francisco's best streets, a section of Broadway known as "Billionaire's Row." Compared to some of the other sprawling mansions on the street, this one is a bit cheaper, even at $8.85M, but still enjoys spectacular downhill views from the upper levels. Measuring over 7,000 square feet, this four-story manse boasts six bedrooms, five bathrooms, and yards upon yards of original details. Wood paneling and beamed ceilings line the entertaining rooms, where the furnishings lose the historic plot. The updated kitchen, too, is a less than convincing historic replica, though at this price point a renovation is never out of the question. According to our colleagues over at Curbed SF, this place has been on and off the MLS over the past few months. Perhaps the owners just aren't quite ready to part with it.
