The Warriors are coming to Mission Bay — and that means the upper tier of the real-estate market is about to get a jolt.

It’ll sting: Ayesha Curry says she’s feeling “sticker shock” looking at S.F. real estate, which is pretty rich (pun intended) considering her husband’s the best-paid player in the NBA.

The family sold its spread in Alamo for $6.3 million earlier this year. So today, we offer them some upgrades.

They just missed the Getty mansion on Vallejo Street, which sold earlier this month for $27 million. But we’ve got five ideas for the family’s East Bay-to-S.F. move — plus a sub-$300k ringer for the rest of the us.

Price: $14.4M
What you’ll get: Four bedrooms and nearly 3800 square feet
Where: 1110 Green Street
Why: This is definitely not a Victorian — instead, it’s a modern, massive home by S.F. architect Jeff Buris. It’s perfect for Ayesha Curry or any other chef, with three outdoor kitchens, a pizza oven, “plentiful wine fridges” and two outdoor fireplaces.

Price: $15.5M
What you’ll get: A house in the clouds in SoMa
Where: 181 Fremont Street #68B
Why: Ever wonder what a $15 million two-bedroom would look like? Here you go: floor-to-ceiling windows and half a floor (only half, mind you), 700 feet up. There is a den (in fact, a “large den”) and the top-of-the-line appliances you’d expect, from Miele and Subzero.

Price: $8.8M
What you’ll get: A[nother] SoMa penthouse with views for miles
Where: 401 Harrison Street #48B
Why: Nearly nine million dollars of real estate will get you 100 feet of floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Bay Bridge and beyond. Amenities include Bertazzoni appliances, Studio Becker cabinetry and white Carrara marble, though note it’s only 500 feet up — you’ll need to dig deeper into those pockets to get the extra 200 feet the listing above provides.

Price: $5.995M
What you’ll get: An actual house near Twin Peaks
Where: 140 Clarendon Avenue
Why: So Twin Peaks is a hike from Mission Bay. The trade-off for the distance, though, is an actual house on a 7,000-square-foot lot in Clarendon Heights, with four bedrooms, a two-car garage and a hot tub in the backyard — plus lots of outdoor entertaining space under the eucalyptus trees.

Price: $7.25M
What you’ll get: A five-bed in Cow Hollow
Where: 2645 Baker Street
Why: Proximity to Cow Marlowe, for one thing. For another, an unassuming slice of Cow Hollow with a ginormous garden, tons of sunlight and a separate in-law suite when family comes to visit. Best of all: the master suite occupies the entire top floor, offering superior views of the Golden Gate and Alcatraz.

And if the idea of more millionaires moving to S.F. makes you slightly nauseated …

Price: $265K
What you’ll get: 15 acres of California land (and neighbors you can neither see nor hear)
Where: Felton Quarry Road
Why: Ready to do your own thing on a 15-acre parcel of undeveloped land in Santa Cruz county? Bonus: there’s a seasonal creek running under the Douglas firs and redwoods, as well as “several level areas” to offset the ridges, “canyon areas” and slopes.
