When the big seven-bedroom Georgian mansion at 2660 Scott St. came on the market back in September, it was looking for a big $15 million price. That put it right near the top of our list of the most expensive homes for sale in San Francisco. The mansion, which was built back in 1901 for a cousin of President Theodore Roosevelt and her husband, sold last week for $13.075 million. The final tally was less than its list price but still a solid $1,436 per square foot.
The highlight of the home is its detailing, which ranges from an elegant silk-walled dining room to a stately library with stamped leather wall treatments and dark wood paneling. Before its most recent sale, the home had been on the market only twice all of its 114 years and had belonged to only three owners. The new owners get a rooftop patio, a garage with room for eight cars, and an elevator that moves between floors. There is also a kitchen that features an O'Keefe & Merritt stove from the 1950s complete with antique hood and a yard with magnolia, cherry, orange, and lemon trees.
