Tuesday Tour: A Breathtaking San Francisco Mansion

This breathtaking, 16,400 square feet, "Premier Gold Coast," corner mansion is currently listed for sale at a cool thirty two million dollars.  This architectural masterpiece was completely rebuilt and restored in 2002. It has virtually all new exterior & interior materials.


Complete with seven bedrooms, and eleven and a half bathrooms, the unobstructed views from the Golden Gate Bridget to the Bay Bridge & City skyline will leave you breathless.  That is, assuming you can move your eyes away from the captivating interior to look out the windows. 

This mansion boasts three rooftop terraces, a level, south-facing garden, six fireplaces, two family rooms, two offices, two kitchens, and basketball court.  There is a commercial speed elevator to all 5 levels. But, remember this mansion is in San Francisco so there's always a compromise. Are you ready?  There are only two parking spaces!  Yes, TWO! Even the multi-million dollar homeowner struggles with parking in this town!    

Step into your new home

We're waiting for you.

Look at the scale and gentle curves of this pretty staircase. Perfection!

I love this dining room!  Wonderful floors...fabulous silk drapes...the varied orange chair fabrics add a punch but are still oh so elegant

The floors up close are so warm and inviting, and that drape in the distance looks like a ballgown. What a stunning vignette of the soothing white tones, natural wood, and pop of color.

The curved island is stunning.  The classic white cabinetry with exposed hinges, glass subway tile backsplash, carrara marble & bead board ceiling are a nod to the home's past with a modern sparkle

I love that the designers incorporated charming elements into this enormous home like the cute passageway from the kitchen to the breakfast table. The stainless table top paired with the traditional built-in buffet seating is a nice touch. Look, they eat cereal!  LOL!

Look at that gorgeous box beam ceiling.  It's so nice to have a family room that walks out directly to a leveled garden- no steps down!  This is uncommon in San Francisco but more expected in homes built on hills like this one.

This is a stunning photograph.  I adore those blue leather chairs paired with those white and yellow pillows, the orange lamp shade peaking through, and that shiny black table-- all surrounded by beautiful architectural elements-- stately pillars, detailed trim work in the new bookcases.  Everything is in keeping with the home's rich architectural past with modern takes on classical furnishings.  Divine!

What is that fabulous, reflective, pink table top?  Painted glass?  Gorgeous.  Even the trio of flowers in charming pitchers is so sweet.  And the chairs with that fabric. I've seen it at the Design Center but can't recall who makes it. Those yellow and white drapes are so cheerful and elegant!  Has this home been featured in a magazine yet?  I want to see more of these details up close (and the sources)!

This room is so warm and inviting.  I want to sit by the fire and sip a glass of wine! The light fixtures are beautiful.  Are they Scudo Saraceno fixtures from Sue Fisher King?

Is this the master bedroom? I thought it was the living room before!  The entire room is surrounded by built-in cabinets with glass fronts.

That huge window is fabulous.  What a view!

The rich architectural details are so delicate.

Heaven!  I wonder what fabulous view you see out the window when you're soaked in bubbles?!  The gold chair and ottoman add such a nice sparkle to this soothing space.  Can you see that amazing mirror behind the other amazing antique mirror?  It looks aged. This is such a tease.  I want to see more!

What a nice dressing room.  I have similar doors in my house!  I feel  a connection here! Yes, I'm dreaming!

This must be the man's dressing room

Beautiful leaded glass.  I wonder if it's original.

I could definitely "keep calm and carry on" here...as long as I wasn't responsible for the mortgage payments on this place...or even the tax payments for that matter which total $375,000 per year!

What a view!

No need to go all the way down to the first floor kitchen.

This lovely light and airy home is so big, there's plenty of room for dark and moody too. I love it all!

The glassed-in surround keeps the cool wind at bay. I wonder if ever gets too hot up here? No pool?

Gorgeous sunset!

Any ballers in da house?  Even the basketball court is stylish and sophisticated.

The kid's craft room...Is there one for mom too?  That's not a marble topped craft table is it?

The bubble gum looks sweeter here.
This looks like a beach cottage.  A happy space for the hired help!

Inlaid stone for easy cleanup.  I wonder how many people it takes to clean this house?  It must be like the Golden Gate Bridge.  By the time they're finished painting it they have to start all over again!
