An almost 100-year-old mansion, which brings European flair to one of San Francisco’s most coveted neighborhoods, has hit the market for almost $ 17 million.
The five-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bath Pacific Heights residence was listed last week. Marble columns, arched windows, a central wrought-iron staircase and a 16th-century Renaissance-style fireplace give it a Parisian atmosphere.
“Evocative of a Parisian-style ‘mansion”, the classic French architecture of the house lends itself perfectly to a more contemporary level of furniture favored by the greatest connoisseurs of design today, “says the list. .
Spread over 8,650 square feet, the home includes a living room with a coffered ceiling with gold detailing and French doors leading to a sunny landscaped patio with statues and a wet room, according to the listing. Stairs descend from one level to a loggia with a spa.
There is also a large dining room and kitchen with an old stone fireplace – which now has a gas starter – and a professional quality La Cornue cooker.
Upstairs, the master suite includes a home office with a wet bar and living room, a walk-in closet with boutique-style storage, and an en-suite bathroom with a sky-light tub, according to the listing. The additional bedrooms are on the third level, as is a second office.
A family room is on the ground floor, as well as a recreation area with a bar, wine cellar and catering kitchen, according to the listing. There is also a garage for two cars with an electric charger and a lift.
The home also has gallery-style lighting throughout, as well as ample space for wall art and sculpture, according to the listing.

The house was last traded in 1999 for $ 8.58 million, according to property records. The owner was not immediately available for comment.
