A 1920s mansion with sweeping views of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco’s posh Pacific Heights neighbourhood has cut $4 million off the asking price. It’s just relisted for $28.8 million. The mansion was reimagined over a period of five years with interior designers Paul Vincent Wiseman, Dara Rosenfeld and architect William B. Remick at the helm. Architectural Digest published the property in 2006 as the Metamorphosis on the Bay, revealing, “The architect developed a plan to open up the interior and reconfigure the space around a new stairway. Extensive below-grade excavation—requiring the house to sit on shoring towers for nearly a year—allowed for the addition of a guest room, a gym, a home theatre, a wine cellar and a billiards room. The once cramped garage became a steel-floored, seven-car showcase for the automobiles collected by the husband, who runs a telecommunications company.” The reimagination of the property resulted in a perfect blend of timeless traditional with modern touches. Enjoy seamless indoor/outdoor living with a walk out view terrace, lawn and mature gardens. Many rooms frame views of the Golden Gate Bridge and surrounding landscape while the upper level lounge includes a substantial window with panoramic views. There are five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, three half bathrooms, a luxurious office, elegant kitchen, Dolby Digital certified home theatre, billiards room, wet bar, wine cellar and large auto gallery with remote diamond plate turntable. It’s on the market for $28.8 million with Michael J. King of Michael King Estates. In-text auto gallery photo by Matthew Millman (Architectural Digest).
