The huge white mansion at 2701 Broadway that crowns Pacific Heights' Gold Coast has quietly been up for sale for $39 million since last November, but today the property made it official by listing on the MLS to become the unrivaled most expensive home for sale in the city. The property is currently owned by raw food chef Roxanne Klein and her entrepreneur/guitar-manufacturer husband, Michael Klein, who bought it off-market back in 2012 for $27 million. Why the huge price hike in barely three years? According to listing agent Neal Ward, 2701 Broadway helped create the market for homes in the $30 million range along Billionaires' Row, and the influx of younger tech and venture capital money in the neighborhood means that the market can support a serious price jump. That theory is about to get a $12 million test.
2701 Broadway sits at one of the highest elevations in Pacific Heights and, therefore, enjoys a top-notch vantage point, with perfectly framed views of the Palace of Fine Arts, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the bay from seemingly every room. The house was built back in 1910 by architect James Miller and underwent a modern renovation by Moller Willrich Architecture in 2002. Its interiors are filled with white box-beam ceilings, marble fireplaces, and fancy light fixtures (even the kitchen lights look like mini-chandeliers). The house has multiples of nearly every room, with seven bedrooms, seven full bathrooms, four half-baths, two kitchens, two family rooms, two offices, and three rooftop terraces. There is, however, only one basketball court.
