For most of us, home is an apartment, a four-bedroom house or a one-bedroom condo. Perhaps that’s why the luxury homes are so enchanting. It’s that glimpse of what could have been, if only we were born on a winning Lotto ticket. While most of us may not have the bank roll to afford them, here’s a look at 7 the most expensive homes on the market in San Francisco nowadays. So, let’s begin…
2845 Broadway St., $60 million
This Pacific Heights home is a stronghold of reinforced concrete and stone. It features a four-car garage and at least four fireplaces. There are views galore here, including the Golden Gate Bridge, the Marina, Mt. Tamalpais and, of course, much of the city.
2601 Broadway St., $15.5 million
Tourists in San Francisco will no doubt have fun driving up and down its sharp hills. The home at 2601 Broadway St. is right in the thick of it, but inside you’ll find lots of luxury. There’s a wine cellar, a game room and even an elevator for traversing its four stories. The seven-bedroom home lets in plenty of light, especially on the top floor, where you can admire views of the city and the water.
2100 Vallejo St., $15.2 million
This stately brick of a home seems quite like a resting place for jetsetting Europeans, what with the 220 V wiring in the kitchen and laundry rooms, and the bidet in the bathroom. That’s fitting with the home’s Victorian interior. As with the other homes in the neighborhood, you can soak in views of the water, city and bridge, and you’re just two blocks from a vibrant shopping area.
2860 Pierce St., $12.5 million
Taking a page from the Spanish architecture you see down in SoCal, this home in Cow Hollow is all about stucco. Inside, there are four bedrooms, and 14 rooms in all. The living room has a wood-burning fireplace, and there’s a dumbwaiter for hoisting objects between floors. Located just two blocks from shopping and one block from public transportation, it’s also free from the grind of daily traffic.
3444 Washington St., $12 million
Enjoy a stunning view of the mountains behind the Golden Gate Bridge from Georgian and Traditional-style home, nestled with so many other luxurious pads in Presidio Heights. The long, vined entryway gives this home the feeling of a hiding place, until you get to its spacious 6 bedrooms. There’s also a game room, a library, a fenced yard and, best of all, a wet bar.
601 Dolores St., $9.95 million
What was clearly once a place of worship is now a three bedroom, two and a half-bathroom home in Mission Dolores. That may not seem like much, but that’s because most of the home’s 17,000 square feet is occupied by a great hall, complete with stained glass windows and a raised platform for performances of any kind. Sure, it’s not for everyone, but it’s certainly unique.
632 El Camino Del Mar, $9 million
With rooms painted in vibrant colors and a living area that sits right on the water, the home at 632 El Camino Del Mar is an escapist’s fantasy. Located in the aptly-named Sea Cliff area, this home is generous with light throughout. It has five bedrooms, but seven and a half bathrooms, plus a wine cellar, making it a great place for guests to come and crash.
