The Listings: Dream Houses
Here's where to move after you sell the app/screenplay/etc.
You gotta dream big.
And it doesn’t hurt to know where you want to end up — after the big score. After you’ve cashed out, sold out, landed the client of a lifetime.
The reward comes with a street address, and floor-to-ceiling windows with a view of the Golden Gate.
Here’s where to start — with the five best, most ultra-extravagant properties on the market in S.F. today.
Address: 34 Maple Street, Presidio Heights
Square footage: 11,700
Number of bedrooms: 9
Chief amenities: Literally everything, including a 650-square-foot deck, four fireplaces, four-car garage, etc. etc. etc.
Notable detail: You’re gonna want to redo the wallpaper
Address: 2820 Scott Street, Cow Hollow
Square footage: 16,000

Address: 47 Chenery Street, Glen Park
Square footage: 9,966, but on a half-acre lot
Number of bedrooms: 10
Chief amenities: A half-acre in San Francisco — the realtor calls it one of the biggest in the city. Also, it looks like a palace.
Notable detail: In addition to the main residence, there’s a separate “three-unit building, cottage, and parking for up to 15 cars.” Maybe you get someone to bulldoze this and put a park on top.
Address: 1032 Broadway, Russian Hill

Address: 320 Sea Cliff Avenue, Sea Cliff
Square footage: 5,200
Number of bedrooms: 4
Chief amenities: Many of these houses, plop ’em down in the middle of nowhere and they’d look like grotesqueries. This house, in its period-relevant 1926 Spanish Colonial Revival, is seriously good looking.
