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

View as Map

[At $34M, 2901 Broadway on Billionaire's Row is currently San Francisco's most expensive home for sale]

It's been a little over a month since we first published a map of the 25 most expensive homes for sale in the city. Much has changed since then, including 2845 Broadway on Billionaire's Row — the most expensive home to make that list — being delisted (there's plenty of rumors going around that it was quietly taken off the market for a sale). Last time around the cheapest property was Russian Hill's historic Feusier Octagon House asking $5,200,000, which is still available but no longer pricey enough to be in the top 25. After the jump, a map of San Francisco's most expensive homes.

1. 2901 Broadway, Billionaire's Row

Copy Link
2901 Broadway St
San Francisco, CA 94115

Asking: $34,000,000

This big abode has been on and off the market since 2006 and has never been in contract. When it first appeared on the market, the 8-bed, 7.5-bath Italian Renaissance mansion asked $58,000,000. The home took several million dollars in price reductions, bringing it down to a more humble $34,000,000. We've been told by several source that the home is in dire condition, and even once was The victim of graffiti. The current owners are in talks with Ryan Associates about a complete renovation to the property, including turning the decrepit tennis court into a garden and outdoor oasis.

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 Holes in the ceiling, water damage to the original silk wallcoverings, outdated everything; the whole place will need a complete restoration.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

2950 Vallejo St
San Francisco, CA 94123

Asking price: $19,500,000
