Location: San Francisco, Calif.
Price: $8.85 million
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 $8.85 million, 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 multiple listing service over the past few months. Perhaps the owners just aren’t quite ready to part with it.
