Starting off the new year with a bang: the "San Francisco dream home" at 1278-1280 17th Ave. doesn't need to be staged to the eyeballs — every surface is ornate enough for the house to explode our brains on its own. One of the bathrooms alone in this "luxurious beyond imagination" house could be used as a marble quarry. We kid, we kid. The 6-bed, 6-bath building totals 4,000 square feet (and includes a rear cottage), and is asking $1,999,000. Forget the Transbay Transit Center — exuberance lives!
