San Francisco Luxury Real Estate: Frisco’s 10 Priciest HomesBy Jared Newman
San Francisco Luxury Real Estate: Frisco’s 10 Priciest Homes on the Market Today – For most of us, home is an apartment, a dorm room, a four-bedroom house or a two-bedroom condo. Perhaps that’s why the luxury homes of the upper crust are so enchanting. It’s that glimpse of what could have been, if only we were born on a winning Lotto ticket or heading up a major corporation. While most of us may not have the bank roll to afford them, here’s a look at the 10 most expensive homes on the market in San Francisco today.
2901 Broadway St., $45 million
Like a personal Lombard Street, a winding driveway leads up to an Italian Renaissance mansion on the hilltops of the Gold Coast. Enjoy views of the Golden Gate Bridge, then lounge by the fireplace before retiring to one of seven bedrooms in this four-story home. Built in 1927, this stately mansion has a raised outdoor courtyard for soaking up some sun in private.
2845 Broadway St., $65 million
Just down the road from the last entry, this Pacific Heights home is a stronghold of reinforced concrete and stone. It features a four-car garage and at least four fireplaces. There are views galore here, including the Golden Gate Bridge, the Marina, Mt. Tamalpais and, of course, much of the city.
2601 Broadway St., $15.5 million
Tourists in San Francisco will no doubt have fun driving up and down its sharp hills. The home at 2601 Broadway is right in the thick of it, but inside you’ll find lots of luxury features. There’s a wine cellar, a game room and even an elevator for traversing its four stories. The seven-bedroom home lets in plenty of light, especially on the top floor, where you can admire views of the city and the water.
2100 Vallejo St., $15.2 million
This stately brick of a home seems quite like a resting place for jetsetting Europeans, what with the 220 V wiring in the kitchen and laundry rooms, and the bidet in the bathroom. That’s fitting with the home’s Victorian interior. As with the other homes in the neighborhood, you can soak in views of the water, city and bridge, and you’re just two blocks from a vibrant shopping area.
2860 Pierce St., $12.5 million
Taking a page from the Spanish architecture you see down in SoCal, this home in Cow Hollow is all about stucco. Inside, there are four bedrooms, and 14 rooms in all. The living room has a wood-burning fireplace, and there’s a dumbwaiter for hoisting objects between floors. Located just two blocks from shopping and one block from public transportation, it’s also free from the grind of daily traffic.
3444 Washington St., $12 million
Enjoy a stunning view of the mountains behind the Golden Gate Bridge from Georgian and Traditional-style home, nestled with so many other luxurious pads in Presidio Heights. The long, vined entryway gives this home the feeling of a hiding place, until you get to its spacious 6 bedrooms. There’s also a game room, a library, a fenced yard and, best of all, a wet bar.
601 Dolores St., $9.95 million
What was clearly once a place of worship is now a three bedroom, two and a half-bathroom home in Mission Dolores. That may not seem like much, but that’s because most of the home’s 17,000 square feet is occupied by a great hall, complete with stained glass windows and a raised platform for performances of any kind. Sure, it’s not for everyone, but it’s certainly unique.
632 El Camino Del Mar, $9 million
With rooms painted in vibrant colors and a living area that sits right on the water, the home at 632 El Camino Del Mar is an escapist’s fantasy. Located in the aptly-named Sea Cliff area, this home is generous with light throughout. It has five bedrooms, but seven and a half bathrooms, plus a wine cellar, making it a great place for guests to come and crash.
2100 Pacific Ave., $8.9 million
If it’s breathtaking views you’re after, 2100 Pacific has them in spades. Nearly every room on the 9th floor of this luxury co-op looks out onto the city or the water, thanks to tall windows that run throughout the perimeter. You can even see Alcatraz from here, which is either comforting or terrifying. When it’s time for a little solitude, retreat to the paneled library, a perfect place for reading with the city lights by your side.
3857 Clay St., $8.5 million
“Relatively quaint” is the operative term for this seven-bedroom home, because it isn’t quite as towering as some of its neighbors on Presidio Heights. Still, the home on 3857 Clay charms with its stained glass windows on the stairway and wood walls throughout. It’s also deceptively feature-rich, with a game room and a roof deck for enjoying the city views. Just try not to stare at the well-off neighbors with even bigger mansions.
