Everyone has an S.F. property nightmare — whether it's an actual, recurring nightmare, or just that time you had to pack up and move to Daly City.
But there are also dreams to be had out there. Especially for those who have the budget.
The big budget. Like, $28-million seven-bedroom in Cow Hollow big.
Whether you're planning a move or just a looky-looer like us, we invite you to have a glance at five of the city's top-line properties, all currently up for grabs.
2820 Scott Street
This Scott Street seven-bedroom has views of basically every landmark in the San Francisco Bay worth seeing, from the Golden Gate to Coit Tower and the hills above Berkeley. The 1905 Italianate villa has five marble terraces, seven fireplaces, and a total of 11 bathrooms of varying sizes — but it's the Tiffany skylight and fountain that are most impressive.
101 Maple Street
If Silicon Valley ever features a V.C. who's not a complete dick, this could very well be his house: It's outrageously gorgeous without being ostentatious, all clean lines and views, views, views of the Marin Headlands and Presidio from the wraparound deck with a retractable roof. Five bedrooms, elevator, basement gym and a master suite bathroom seemingly clad entirely in marble.
67-69 Belcher Street
67-69 Belcher in Duboce Triangle was on the market a brief eight years ago, when images of its utterly unique live-work-artist's space hit the interwebs: Not every multi-million-dollar property comes with a kiln. Now, it's been re-styled with a wall of guitars, but architect Ira Kurlander's magnificent, sun-washed, six-bedroom, single-family space is as beautiful as ever.
2300 Vallejo Street
Check the exquisite brickwork on this 1899 Pac Heights manse designed by architect Franklin S. Van Trees: If Edith Wharton had written about S.F. instead of New York, The Age of Innocence might have been set here. With the 6700 square feet, you'll get four bedrooms, views of the Golden Gate, wine room, and balconies — plus the benefits of a down-to-the-studs reno completed in 2008 that brought in brand-new radiant heat, plumbing, and electrical.
338 Spear Street 42E
Maybe you're looking for a starter mansion? Views of SoMa, downtown and the bay? Bernardo Fort-Brescia of Architectonica contributed the design for this three-bedroom in the sky at 338 Spear, part of the Waterfront Tower II Infinity Penthouse development. Just under 1700 square feet, with three bedrooms, two baths, and some shared amenities: a 24-hour concierge, gym, and club room/movie theater on the premises.
