A very expensive full-floor co-op at Pacific Heights' uber-prestigious 2500 Steiner Street has quietly hit the market for $9.95 million, according to an in-the-know tipster. The co-op, which is unit 5 in the building, isn't on the the MLS and there are no interior photos available, but we hear that it's a two-bedroom with sensational views from every angle. All of the units in the building were originally built as four-bedrooms, but No. 5 has been turned into a two-bedroom with a big master suite, a large second bedroom, and an oversize family room.
2500 Steiner is one of the most prominent buildings in the city, which it can look down on from its perch high atop Pacific Heights, just off Alta Plaza Park. Its list of visitors has been as prominent as the building itself over the years, with sitting presidents and plenty of senators stopping by. The building offers a grand entryway and a doorman, but the 3,500-square-foot apartment itself hasn't been updated since the 1980s. It likely needs quite a bit of renovating to be brought up to modern tastes, but given that unit 10 sold for $10 million in 2010 in its original condition, the big price doesn't seem like too much of a stretch.
