Updating the Map of the 25 Most Expensive Homes for Sale in San Francisco

View as Map

April's had some big sales and even bigger listings, so this month's map of the 25 most expensive homes for sale in San Francisco has quite a few new members. At $30M, the priciest abode is still former chairman of the Pacific Stock Exchange Doug Engmann's home at 2724 Pacific St. in Pacific Heights. Absent from the list but without a reported sale is YouTube co-founder Steve Chen's penthouse at the Ritz-Carlton, which was asking $8M. Let's get this party started.

2724 Pacific Avenue
San Francisco, CA 94115

2724 Pacific is a four-level, 7-bedroom home currently owned by Doug Engmann, former chairman of the Pacific Stock Exchange. It can be yours for $30,000,000. The 13,500 square foot abode sits on a lot totaling more than 26,000 square feet, making it one of San Francisco's largest private residential parcels. Property highlights include a gorgeous solarium with koi pond, and a carriage house that doubles as a game room.

3800 Washington St
San Francisco, CA 94118

Halsey Minor, a technology entrepreneur who you may know as the guy who founded CNET in 1993, bought this "modified copy" of the Petit Trianon in 2007. The 8-bed, 7-bath, 18,000 sq. ft. mansion comes with the adjoining 2,618 sq. ft. guest home at 3810 Washington and a vacant lot (125 Maple) that's currently being used as a backyard. The three must be sold together. The price was recently reduced to $21,000,000. Curbed SF got a tour of the property, and it's in really bad shape. Holes in the ceiling, water damage to the original silk wallcoverings, outdated everything; the whole place will need a complete restoration. If it ever does sell and get the renovation it deserves, we sincerely hope the spectacular ballroom becomes wedding central.
