Last spring, we introduced you to 2900 Vallejo, an impressively preserved four-level Pacific Heights mansion that came on the market in May asking $15.998 million. Despite the four-bedroom home's fitout by noted designer Ken Fulk—the man responsible for the interiors of flashy private club the Battery—the house hasn't found a buyer in its six months on the market and just dropped its price by $1.498 million. The new $14.5 million ask puts the house at $1,671 per square, which is expensive but also below the neighborhood's $1,798 median price per square over the last 90 days.
The house was built in 1912 by notable Bay Area architect Louis M. Upton, and his original features are still intact. There are stone balustrades, al fresco balconies, and carved pilasters that all point to Upton's Spanish-Italian Renaissance influences. Floor-to-ceiling windows in some parts of the house offer breathtaking views across the Marina to the bay, and the balconies look out to the Golden Gate Bridge. There's almost nothing wrong with this place, but it did take the sixth spot in our most recent list of the 25 most expensive homes for sale in San Francisco, and maybe the over-$15 million ask was just a touch too much.
