The fairy tale-worthy white mansion at 2701 Broadway has been the most expensive home for sale in San Francisco for the past seven months, with a whopping $39 million ask. Now, the seven-bedroom, 16,000-square foot home has officially changed hands for $31 million. Although it didn't meet the ask, the price is still enough to make it the most expensive sale in the city this year, just topping the $30 million penthouse at 2006 Washington. It's also $4 million more than the home last sold for back in 2012 when raw food chef Roxanne Klein and her entrepreneur/guitar-company-CEO husband Michael Klein purchased it off market.
The home is huge, with multiples of nearly every room: There are two kitchens, two family rooms, two offices, three rooftop terraces, seven full bathrooms, and four half-baths. There is one indoor basketball court, although, as commenters have noted, its ceilings are a bit low for a fully functional game. The home's interiors are fairly understated, although there are nice touches like box beam ceilings, elegant moldings, white wainscoting, and big carved fireplaces. It will be interesting to see if the house undergoes a big renovation over the next few months as its new owners put their stamp on this classic Billionaires' Row manse.
