It doesn’t get much tonier than these three words tied together: Pacific. Heights. Penthouse. And this one, located at the corner of Pacific and Laguna, comes with excess, views galore, and quite the pedigree.
Walter and Elise Haas, the latter a descendant of the Levi Strauss fortune, who bought the home in 1949, hired prominent interior designer Frances Elkins to create a penthouse for the couple’s expansive art collection. Smart move. The full-floor abode measures over 5,000 square feet (one of only four 5,000-plus square foot pre-war penthouses in San Francisco), making it ideal for displaying art.
Matisse’s Femme au chapeau (1905), among other pieces, once hung inside this home.
The couples’ estate sold the penthouse in 1992 to the current owners who enlisted interior designer Agnes Bourne to widen the hallways and open up the rooms for their own equally large collection.
Now it’s back on the market seeking a tidy sum. 2100 Pacific comes with five bedrooms, three and a half baths, and a two-car garage. An ideal spot for a well-moneyed buyer who, in the home’s grand tradition, wants to show off their arsenal of high art.
HOAs are $5,256. Asking is $10,950,000.
