2600 Pacific Ave. in Pacific Heights was the most expensive home sold in San Francisco during the 2010 calendar year. It was an off-market deal (non-MLS) with a reported sales price in the tax records of $15,500,00. When I was in the neighborhood the other day I noticed that it is an active construction site, so I snapped some pictures:
While the home looks surprisingly small from the corner of Pacific and Pierce, tax records list it as having over 7,000 square feet of living space – as you can see from the photos, the north end of the home has several levels, the uppermost of which probably offer some absolutely phenomenal views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco Bay.
The tax records list the home as currently being owned by a a “HOS Pacific LLC” and “Alta Hanna & Van” – so I do not know if the current owners are updating/remodeling the home before planning on moving in, or if it was purchased as a “flip” that we will see on the market in the next couple of years.
It’s an incredible location, and I’d be willing to guess that the views from the home are probably pretty spectacular – but I also wonder what the layout of the main home is, and if it feels smart or incredibly “vertical” because of the number of living levels that are on the north end of the home?
And hey, before you roll your eyes at what is a 15 million dollar “fixer” – there is currently a home on the market in Presidio Heights that is listed for north of $20,000,000 and is a fixer as well!
