Seven incredible Pacific Union listings showcased by Curbed

San Francisco’s 20 most expensive homes for sale

See the powerhouse homes currently on the market in the city

Who in the world has money to burn in San Francisco anymore is hard to say, but those few who do have dough to set ablaze have plenty of lavish and luxurious San Francisco homes to get burned by.

So if you’re looking for a penthouse with a view or a mansion pool—word has it that quasi-San Francisco resident Serena Williams’ guilty pleasure is buying homes—we’ve got your wildest dreams on display.

Note that this list mostly showcases the priciest San Francisco homes publicly listed right now. There could be more expensive homes privately exchanging hands. Originally composed in 2017, we’ve updated this map for a new year.

1. 181 Fremont grand penthouse

$42 million

The Yerba Buena tower’s 6,941-square-foot home, designed by Orlando Diaz Azcuy, will be ready for move-in next year. And it’s up for grabs. The space encompasses the structure’s entire top floor and features five bedrooms, five and two half baths, and sunrise-to-sunset views.

The penthouse also comes with a foyer with checkered stone flooring, a lounge room with sliding pocket doors, a stacked stone transparent fireplace in the den, a wet bar with a wine tower, a formal dining room, and a secondary kitchen.

5. 3001 Pacific

$16 million

Used for years as the Egyptian consulate, this five-level home comes with two master bedroom suites, numerous bedroom suites, a fitness area, three kitchens, six and eight half baths, and living quarters for the help.

In a previous life, the roughly 14,000-square-foot mansion, designed by architect firm Bliss and Faville(who created the Masonic Temple on Van Ness and the University Club on Powell), was used as a private residence after the 1906 Great Quake.

This stories property has had a rough year, knocking $6 million off its asking price and dropping from SF’s third most expensive home in 2017 down to fifth place now.

6. 181 Fremont penthouse

$14 million

Standing in the shadow of its sibling taking the top spot, this penthouse comes with a comparatively quaint two beds, two and a half baths, and 3,199 square feet. HOAs come to $2,942/month.

7. 181 Fremont, 69B

$14 million

181 Fremont, going toe to toe with Salesforce Tower as the second tallest locale in the city, casts such a long shadow that it takes up the seventh place spot on this list as well via a two bed, two and a half bath condo just recently completed.

9. 2624 Green

$13.5 million

This envy-inducing Cow Hollow mansion last sold in 2002, but the present owners have so thoroughly renovated it since then that it even comes with a new foundation with its new eight-figure price tag. Some of its period details remain, like leaded glass windows, coffered ceilings, and more. But the ivy-laced brick exterior is the biggest eye-catcher.

10. 308 Sea Cliff

$13 million

In a city with a dearth of sweeping staircases, this Sea Cliff property doesn’t disappoint. Coming in at four bedrooms and four and a half baths, and 4,180 square feet, it’s a stately and pretty chunk of home in one of the city’s toniest neighborhoods, although it has taken a pretty chunk of change off its price since last year, losing $1 million off the asking.

18. 2440 Vallejo

$9.95 million

Teetering right on the edge of the eight-figure mark, this five-bed, three-and-a-half bath 1921 remodel squeezed between Cow Hollow and Pac Heights includes a “lush garden originally designed by Thomas Church” in the sales pitch. (That’s Thomas Church the noted 20th century landscape designer, not the Academy Award-nominated actor, although that would have made for an interested design too no doubt.)
