[Bartlett Real Estate]
3598 Jackson, on the corner of Spruce, has hit the market and is inviting you over for a peek. The manse was designed by Northern California's father of Modernism William Wurster early in his career, giving a look back at his flirtations with traditional styles that were a precursor to his famous modernist designs. This is one massive house— we're talking 10,000 sq. ft. with 7 Bedrooms, 7.5 Bathrooms, 5 Fireplaces, a garage for 4 cars, wine cellar, "bumming" room (huh?), and an elevator with access to all floors. The kitchen is a bit bland, but we'll deal. It also has some impressive pedigree— it was designed for the Sutro family, and President Ford even once stayed as a guest in the top floor suite. The open house is scheduled for today from 4-7pm, and the broker's invitation goes out to anyone in the Northern CA design and building community who want to see it before it sells into private hands again. Future buyers are certainly welcome if you can spare the $12,500,000.
