Tudor Treat, San Francisco, CA

$12,000,000; 898francisco.com
Perched on the north slope of Russian Hill, this six-bedroom, Tudor Revival mansion enjoys views of the San Francisco Bay in addition to city landmarks like Ghirardelli Square, Alcatraz Island, and Aquatic Park. Built in 1928, the four-story home retains much of its period detail, from the Gothic-style stone archway entrance to the library’s leaded glass windows and wood-burning fireplace. It might be difficult to decide whether to gaze first at the stunning details or the stunning view; either way, that’s a problem we wouldn’t mind having.
