Last sold in 2005 for $5,150,000, 2209 Pacific in Pacific Heights is now back on the market with an asking price of $9,500,000. The home was designed in 1915 by Arthur Brown Jr., who is best known for such San Francisco landmarks as City Hall, Coit Tower and the War Memorial Opera House. The current owners spent two years sinking in tons of cash to expand the home and "brought the property into the 21st century while maintaining its architectural heritage." The deets: it's a 3-bed, 7-bath, 5,900-square-foot Beaux-Arts mansion. Two of those seven bathrooms are half-baths. Property highlights include an elevator that serves the main living areas, renovated kitchen, private theater (yes-- it's legit), au pair room and wine cellar. Fun tidbit that will be a hit when you host your first cocktail party: the home served as the Consulate of Monaco.
