It took more than a year and price cuts in excess of $3 million, but the big beautiful Getty mansion at 2900 Vallejo has finally sold. Built in 1912 by Bay Area architect Louis M. Upton and touched up more recently by Ken Fulk—the man responsible for the interiors of flashy private club the Battery—the four-bed, six-point-five-bath property was originally looking for $15.998 million when William and Vanessa Getty quietly listed it in the spring of 2014. The Gettys picked it up in 2002 for $11.5 million, according to property records. After a few hefty price chops (the most recent of which took it down to $14.5 million), buyers came in with a mind to get a further $2 million discount, and they prevailed. In exchange for their efforts, they'll be rewarded with the fruits of Upton's Spanish-Italian Renaissance influences, from stone balustrades and carved pilasters to al fresco balconies with Golden Gate Bridge views.
