3800 Washington St
San Francisco, CA 94118

Asking price: $25,000,000

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. Curbed SF recently 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 Holes in the ceiling, water damage to the original silk wallcoverings, outdated everything; the whole place will need a complete restoration.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.
