The last time that the Spanish Revival home at 2040 Jackson Street sold, the year was 2008 and the price was a mere $5.2 million. The five-bed, six-point-five-bath abode—which has undergone a big renovation since then—sailed back onto the market over the weekend with a heady $15 million ask, high enough to put it at the number-six spot on our list of the most expensive homes currently for sale in the city. The house is huge, with 7,100 square feet (yes, that puts it solidly over $2,000 per square, which isn't crazy for Pacific Heights) and has been redone in a slick modern style.
Its feature point is a rooftop mezzanine that takes up almost the entire roof and looks out to Alcatraz and the bay. A spiral staircase winds through the center of every floor. There's even more outdoor space downstairs and a home theater that includes a 120-inch screen. It is undoubtedly a very nice house, but we're finding ourselves a bit underwhelmed by everything but the price.
