1001 California, the famed Beaux-Arts residential building high atop Nob Hill, is known for its ridiculously high HOA dues and its epic price chops. Oh, and it was designed by Lewis W. Butler. Condos within this building are listed for $7.25M and then sold for $4.5M. Other times they get their $3.5M asking price. The units are jaw-dropping gorgeous, like this one that was designed by architect Andrew Skurman and interior designer Suzanne Tucker. The interiors were so fabulous that the apartment was featured in Architectural Digest, the magazine for rich old people. There's only 12 units in the building, so you can imagine our delight when one landed on the market today.
Listed at $5,500,000, this 3-bed, 3.5-bath, 4,318 sq. ft. townhouse is the latest addition to our very exclusive Most Expensive Club. That said, we're not entirely sure if we're digging the stark and contemporary interiors. Do you think they pair well with the building's Beaux-Arts style? We're more fond of the units in the building that do it up with the glamour and opulence (we're talking lacquered dining rooms and mouldings galore). This particular unit has monthly HOA dues of $5,698 and comes with 1-car parking in the garage. What say you, dearest readers? Will this big beauty get asking? Or should we expect a price chop?
