The 10-room penthouse at 2000 Washington Street is on the market for $11.5 million—an amount made even more mind-boggling by its desperate need for updating. Although the unit is 5,360 square feet, it only has 3 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. The other 7 rooms in the apartment include a study, a formal dining room, a formal sitting room, a TV room, and a completely useless formal parlor. Accenting the traditional layout are the ceilings—finished in Venetian Plaster—and light fixtures—numerous chandeliers and wall sconces. The unit also comes with 3-car parking. The address comes with the prestige of one of San Francisco's "most desirable co-op buildings," which is located across from Lafayette Park, consists of 6 full-floor apartments, and, of course, includes a doorman. All of these amenities are furnished by the HOA dues, which could rent you a two-bedroom apartment: $3,800/month.
