Was: $12,500,000
Then: $10,950,000
Now: $9,750,000
You Save: $2,750,000 The late Lee Herbst Gruhn's Herbst Manor in Pacific Heights has taken yet another price chop. The 5-bed, 4.5-bath, 8,120 sq. ft. mansion was built in 1899 by San Francisco starchitect Ernest Coxhead. The mansion was last home to the late Lee Herbst Gruhn, a philanthropist and San Francisco society dame. When it first hit the market, Herbst Manor was shown it all its original glamour, but it was quickly decided that the current interiors were a bit too much for some folks, which means better staging and painting a few walls white. But worry not, fans of mirrors and gold gilt trim. There's still an abundance of that as well. Property highlights include a mural that Lee painted herself of the Palace of Fine Arts and a "historically significant French salon." Readers, what'll it take for this "Mini Versailles" to finally nab a buyer?
