You Save: $7,005,000 The mansion at 3800 Washington in Presidio Heights has been on and off the market since May 2012 and despite some big price cuts still hasn't found a buyer. It started at $25 million when it was first listed, most recently was on the market for $19.989 million and just underwent another hacking to get down to $17.995 million. The place is owned by embattled tech entrepreneur Halsey Minor and is a "modified copy" of the Petit Trianon chateau that sits on the grounds of Versailles. Minor once had big plans to renovate the 20,000+ sq-ft property but filed for bankruptcy last year before embarking on any sort of overhaul. When Curbed toured 3800 Washington back in 2012, it was in bad condition, with holes in the ceiling, water damage to the silk wall coverings and neglect all around. It's even had abandoned building violations filed against it.
The house has 9 fireplaces and 4 kitchens. It comes with an adjoining 2,000 square foot guesthouse and a vacant lot that's currently being used as a backyard. There are 9 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms in the main house with an additional 5 bedrooms and 3 baths in the guesthouse. It was built in 1902 and is listed as San Francisco landmark Number 95.
