Mayor Joe Alioto's Former Beaux Arts Palace Up for Grabs

New, 1 comment

For all those eager to buy into the prestige of an exclusive and gated San Francisco community, this 5-bed, 6.5-bath mansion at 34 Presidio Terrace might be just the ticket. Built in 1911 and listed for as much as $11 million in the mid-2000s, the 8,000+ sq. ft. house, situated on a 10,441 square foot double lot (the second largest on the cul-de-sac) is now on the market for a mere $8,980,000. The long list of bragging rights includes essentials ranging from au pair quarters to a marble-encased reception area to home gym inclusive of steam room, sauna, and wet bar. That the mansion once was home to Mayor Joe Alioto adds a touch of celebrity cache, and the design credentials of architect George Applegarth—better known for his work on the Legion of Honor—ensure the authenticity of the over-the-top Beaux Arts detailing inside and out. When calculating your expenditures, be sure to factor in $1137 monthly HOA dues and costs for leasing your car collection, as the garage only has room for 3. - Laura Tepper
