Set in San Francisco’s Pacific Heights neighborhood, an elite enclave also known as "Billionaire’s Row," the 11,600-square-foot home at 2799 Broadway gives off a grand, old-world vibe, but it was actually built in 2004. If it sells for its current asking price—a casual $39,000,000—the manse will tie for the most expensive home ever sold in San Francisco.
The current owners of the six-bedroom residence are tech entrepreneurs Michael and Xochi Birch, who sold their social networking site Bebo to AOL for $850 million in 2008. With boldly colored, eccentric interiors designed by San Francisco–based designer Ken Fulk, the four-story home could be easily mistaken for a lavish boutique hotel in Britain.
The entrance leads to a regal portrait gallery with aged, cast-stone walls. Other lavish features include a serpentine staircase crafted by Italian artisans, a large wine cellar, a moody library with coffered ceilings and a decorative fireplace clad with a glass mosaic Union Jack, and even a pub with an antique bar reclaimed from a decommissioned British tavern. Keep scrolling for a tour of the palatial home.
