Property Porn: $15M Buys History and Luxury in Pacific Heights

By


If you're going to pay $15 million for a San Francisco home, why not select one with extravagant amenities, a storied history, and no immediate nosy neighbors? We have just the place.

Originally built 114 years ago by the prolific Bay Area architect Albert Farr for the cousin of then-President Teddy Roosevelt and her husband (a bigwig at the SF Water Company), this fully detached Pacific Heights home has a past as rich as its interiors. Then in 2009, modern met historical when the house got a refresh through a multimillion-dollar renovation. 

Absolutely nothing like our own small Victorians that have been carved into overpriced Lilliputian apartments, this tony address ponies up for the price. With more full bathrooms, fireplaces, and parking spots (8 each) than bedrooms (7), 2660 Scott Street has 15,000 square feet of leg room and an elevator to help you access its four spacious floors. Press the button for the top to take in moneyed views of the SF Bay, Alcatraz, and the Palace of Fine Arts. 

Having guests over? Your private chef will no doubt enjoy the kitchen's original 1950s O’Keefe & Merritt stove while your friends mill about in the lush garden, seasonal cocktails in hand. Too much to drink? Invite them to stay overnight in the au pair suite. 

Possibly the coolest thing about this home? It's only had three owners in the past 114 years. Perhaps four is a charm.

Here are the deets:

Location: 2660 Scott St. 

Bedrooms: 7

Bathrooms: 8 full; 2 half

Living Space: 15,000 sq. ft 

Fireplaces: 8

Levels: 4

Garage: 8 car garage
