This Is What the Most Expensive House in San Francisco Looks Like
Infinity pool? Check. In-house art gallery? Check. Jaw-dropping views, 2,000-bottle wine cellar, and stand-alone spa? Check, check, check.
In a place that’s known for outrageous housing prices, multi-million-dollar listings are de rigueur. But this on-the-market mansion, currently listed at $40.5 million, is the most expensive in San Francisco right now—and it’s an entertainer’s paradise.
Straddling two lots with sweeping views of the Bay and Telegraph Hill, the 9,500-square-foot Residence 950, designed by San Francisco-based luxury home developer Troon Pacific, took six years to complete and has the three “Ls” (location, location, location) on lock: It’s perched on upscale Russian Hill's Lombard Street (less than a block from the most crooked part of the most crooked street in the world) and is convenient to cable cars, Fisherman’s Wharf, and the San Francisco Art Museum.
But there’s so much more to the luxury listing than its prime placement: The estate consists of a three-story main house and a separate “wellness cottage” (more on that later) that bookend a wide, park-like lawn and garden with outdoor entertaining spaces galore. And then there’s the pool. The 40-foot cantilevered infinity pool with stellar city views tips this residential masterpiece into resort hotel territory.
The main house, built on top of an underground gallery, features a master bedroom with vaulted ceilings and bath with Calacatta oro marble slab walls, soaking tub, and in-shower television.
Off the master suite is a balcony with garden and city views.
The second floor is an entertaining oasis, with light-filled living spaces and a state-of-the-art kitchen, with great indoor-outdoor flow onto a large terrace via sliding glass walls.
Below the main residence, the subterranean space—with soaring ceilings studded with skylights—can be utilized as a gallery, sports court, or event space. A climate-controlled wall of wine can store and display 2,000 bottles.
The thoughtfully arranged outdoor spaces include multiple zones, from the lush lawn to an outdoor dining room with space for 20+ guests, a heated outdoor couch, two fireplaces, an amphitheater with a projector and retractable screen, and a to-the-nines outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven, high-performance grill, rotisserie, and refrigerator. And of course there’s the infinity pool, which is heated and has underwater lighting and speakers.
Across the lawn is the one-bed, one-bath “wellness cottage,” outfitted with a sauna, steam room, spa bath, massage room, hot tub with city views, and outdoor shower. Another thing you can feel good about: the thoughtfully constructed property is LEED-certified and has energy star appliances and 95% LED lighting throughout.
