Over the Thanksgiving break, the Wall Street Journal got word of a $30M Pacific Heights property hitting the market. Located at 2724 Pacific Avenue, the four-level, 7-bedroom home is currently owned by by Doug Engmann, who is a former chairman of the Pacific Stock Exchange. The 13,500 square foot abode (you read that right) sits on a lot totaling 26,000 square feet, making it one of San Francisco's largest private residential parcels. Engmann purchased the property in 1983 and restored it. Engmann says he'll miss entertaining at the gigantic manse, which can "easily accommodate 500 guests and a band for a reception or 100 friends at an Easter-egg hunt." Fun fact: the home played host to the 1984 Decorator's Showcase. Property highlights include (everything) a gorgeous solarium that has a koi pond, and a "formal sunken garden that the family used as a volleyball court when their children were young." The carriage house also doubles as a game room and a gazebo.
