When the grand Pacific Heights mansion at 2698 Pacific Avenue sold back in 2012 for $8.5 million, it was in a strange, almost creepy state. The home had stunning bones, with eight bedrooms, four offices, and two libraries. There were intricate pieces metalwork on the stairs, columns, arches, and carefully detailed fireplaces. However, there was also turquoise shag carpeting, frescoed ceilings, and utterly ghastly decor. The property is currently very visibly going through a major renovation but has come back on the market asking $13.5 million before it is even finished.
According to the brokerbabble, the home's main rooms are "among the most sublime and sumptuous" in San Francisco and are "currently being restored to their original splendor." The mansion was built back in 1906 by renowned architects Newsom and Newsom, who were responsible for many of Pacific Heights' great homes of the era. Some of the beautiful original details are visible in the very few current interior photos of the property, which show carved mantles, that staircase metalwork, and stained glass. We can't wait to see what happens with this place.
