Put on the market just last month, this Scott Street baby is the second-most expensive home money can buy in San Francisco. Built just a year before the quake, it's been kept in tip-top shape by generations of previous owners, which includes the installation of an utterly impressive Tiffany glass skylight. If that doesn't take your breath away for one moment, you might not've had a pulse to begin with.
The rest of the property is equally grand, from the sprawling, formal dining room and reception hall, to the special bedroom for an au pair, five marble terraces, cast bronze balconies, two laundry rooms, right down to the sweeping view of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay. You'll even get a few things we didn't know still existed in houses, like (three!) powder rooms, a cloak room, and a salon. There's also a chill room with big enough for a few pool tables and flat screens, a music room, a wine cellar, a wet bar, a spa bathroom, and a home gym. If you're having trouble getting around, have no fear: There's an elevator that goes to all floors.
It's so tricked out, you won't even need a magician at your kid's next birthday.
