The Pink House in Belvedere is on the market for the first time in 20 years. Designed in the Mission Revival style in 1912 by Beaux-Arts trained J.M. Howells (of NYC's Art Deco Daily News Building and Chicago's neo-Gothic Tribune Building fame), the 7,800 square foot mega manse sits atop a cliff with unobstructed views of basically the entire Bay Area. The house has seven bedrooms and six bathrooms (including a top floor master suite), along with fancy gardens galore and arched terraces, an au pair studio, separate one-bedroom apartment, and oh yeah, a ballroom. The interior has suffered from some pretty lack-luster renovations, but the bones are still good and the views are pretty ridiculous. The listing has hit the market at $11,750,000 - anyone looking for a high-price restoration project?
