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

View as Map

We had some pretty heavy movement in late November and early December, so we thought it best to update our map of the 25 Most Expensive Homes for Sale in San Francisco. As you may already know, the top spot now goes 2724 Pacific in Pacific Heights, as 2901 Broadway on Billionaire's Row recently sold. There's also a slew of new additions to the list, as most of the pricier abodes either sold or have been taken off the market. You can see last month's map here.

2724 Pacific Avenue
San Francisco, CA 94115

Asking: $30,000,000

2901 Broadway on Billionaire's Row sold this month for $28,250,000 (although it was asking many more millions), so we have a new top dog in our Priciest Residential Real Estate Club. 2724 Pacific is a four-level, 7-bedroom home currently owned by Doug Engmann, former chairman of the Pacific Stock Exchange. 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 (everything) a gorgeous solarium with koi pond, and a carriage house that doubles as a game room.

2. 3800 Washington, Presidio Heights

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 Holes in the ceiling, water damage to the original silk wallcoverings, outdated everything; the whole place will need a complete restoration.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