Bay Area homes with both grandeur and pedigree are cropping up on the MLS, adding to a September real estate market that’s already swimming with new listings.

The most notable is a $100 million estate located in the most expensive ZIP code in the Bay Area — and the entire country: Atherton, 94027.

The home is at 170 Atherton Ave., the estate of the famed Fisher family. Donald and Doris Fisher are founders of the retail brand The Gap. Don Fisher died in 2009.

“This listing is the largest real estate offering since 2011 when a 12-acre property on Atherton Avenue sold,” Compass listing agent Mary Gullixson said in a statement, noting that the estate was created over decades by the owner. “Properties like these are generational opportunities to own in the most desirable location of the Bay Area.”

The property includes three parcels totaling eight acres and is the ninth largest estate in Atherton, according to Gullixson. The main home, designed by Michael Taylor from San Francisco, has five bedrooms and four bathrooms on one level, including two en suite.

Meanwhile in San Francisco, two more ultra luxury properties — one a Pacific Heights home with a link to the San Francisco Chronicle and the other in Sea Cliff — have just come to market.

The circa 1915 oceanfront home in Sea Cliff enjoys an unobstructed oceanfront setting with views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands, Point Reyes and the Pacific Ocean. And it’s all connected by an elevator. The home is listed by Steve Gothelf and Neill Bassi of Sotheby’s International Realty-San Francisco for $15.95 million.

Up the hill in Pacific Heights, the home of the late Charles “Kip” Thieriot — great grandson of the San Francisco Chronicle founder — is up for sale for $14.2 million. Thieriot died of Covid-19 on Jan. 2 in San Francisco at age 73.

Situated on a prime corner of Pacific Heights and steps from the Presidio, this 1928 residence was designed by architect Henry Gutterson, a graduate of the École des Beaux-Arts and the supervising architect for St. Francis Wood.
