Last sold to Internet entrepreneur John McLaughlin in late 2011 for $4.7M, this William Wurster-designed abode in Pacific Heights just hit the market asking $11.25M. Listing agent Gloria Smith recently told the Wall Street Journal that McLuaghlin spent "about four times what he was quoted" on a 1-year complete remodel, as his daughter was planning to go to school in San Francisco. Those plans have changed so now the big abode is on the market. The 4-bed, 4.5-bath, 4,953 square foot home was also once home to late Levi Strauss heirs Walter A. Haas Jr and his wife Evelyn. The listing tells us that "the finest finishes throughout are beautifully integrated with the clean architectural lines of William Wurster's design," which perhaps explains the $2,271 per square foot price tag.
