Last Week's Biggest Sales: Julius Krafft Mansion Takes $6.5M

Listed for: $6.5M
Received: $6.5M
Size: 7-bed, 7.5-bath, 8,335-square-foot single-family home
Location: 2555 Webster St, Pacific Heights
The skinny: Designed by neoclassical architect Julius Krafft and built in 1906, 2555 Webster spent a goodly five months on the market before landing a buyer willing to fork over the full asking price in exchange for a roomy seven bedrooms stretched over four levels and first dibs on a lozenge-shaped pool with a matching mock-celestial ceiling. The details throughout the home are exquisite, from the pillared hallway to the wood-beamed ceilings and stained glass.

Listed for: $5.495M
Received: $5.3M
Size: 3-bed, 3-bath co-op
Location: 1750 Taylor #1003, Russian Hill
The skinny: This twofer at the Royal Towers initially landed on the market back in June seeking $5.995 million. The three-bedroom condo (which had been two units once upon a time) shimmied off the market and back on, then took a $500K price chop. The place is decked out with ornately framed oil paintings, well-marbled bathrooms, and one of the larger starburst mirrors we've seen. Even after the price chop, we got to wondering whether the condo—which has bounced on and off our list of the top 25 most expensive homes in this town—also consequently boasts one of SF's priciest bidets.

Listed for: $3.495M
Received: $3.495M
Size: 5-bed, 4-bath single-family home
Location: 39 Lloyd St, Hayes Valley
The skinny: This new-construction three-story house has supertall windows and shiny everything. The home landed on the market in September in an unstaged state, looking for $3.995 million. Could the dearth of starburst mirrors and cowhide throw rugs have contributed to the $500K price chop the property subsequently took? We may never know that, but we'll know a lot more if the new occupant doesn't buy some window treatments stat.
