San Francisco has some of the most amazing old houses in the country. I could look through their real estate listings all day. But this 1894 mansion in Pacific Heights really made my jaw drop, from the dramatic staircase to the stained-glass dome. It’s on the market for $12.5 million — take a look!
The staircase is a real show-stopper.
The mansion is massive with 11 bedrooms, 11.5 baths, and over 16,000 square feet.
Originally built in 1894, the property was completely reborn and rescripted in 2000 by architect Lewis Butler and designer Paul Wiseman in a project that spanned 3 years and cost more than $10 million.
The house has 13 fireplaces, including these in the dining room and kitchen.
There are 3 stories and a finished basement, all impeccably restored.
Looking up at the stained-glass dome:
The top of the dome can be seen in the third-story “rec room:”
A second kitchen:
So charming — I’d be just as happy to cook in this one!
New lap pool in back:
Its parcel 117′ x 127′ is one of the largest in Pacific Heights. The property fully embraces the needs and demands of the most active 21st century lifestyle from the 4-level main house to the carriage house that now includes a fitness center and caretaker’s apartment, to the spa with 75′ lap pool.
