You save: $4,000,000 Halsey Minor, a technology entrepreneur who you may know as the guy who founded CNET in 1993, bought this "modified copy" of the Petit Trianon in 2007. The 8-bed, 7-bath, 18,000 sq. ft. mansion comes with the adjoining 2,618 sq. ft. guest home at 3810 Washington and a vacant lot (125 Maple) that's currently being used as a backyard. The three must be sold together. When we toured the property late last year we were a bit concerned about the decrepit mansion. You see, it's in bad shape. There were holes in the ceiling, water damage to the original silk wallcoverings, outdated everything; the whole place will need a complete restoration. Perhaps that's why the very big abode has decided to take $4M off its asking price? Readers, chime in with your theories. One more thing: even with a $4M price cut, 3800 Washington is still San Francisco's 2nd most expensive home currently for sale.
