Is this penthouse the grandest in all of San Francisco? Take a look at $14M listing
High above the streets on the 60th floor of one of California’s highest and largest condominiums, a 5,000-square-foot penthouse with 270-degree views of iconic San Francisco landmarks — such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Angel Island, Treasure Island and the Transamerica Pyramid — is for sale for $14 million.
The two-bedroom, three-bathroom residence sits atop the Millennium Tower, which opened in 2009 as the city’s tallest residential building.
In addition to staggering sunrise-to-sunset views, the Grand Penthouse (301 Mission St. Unit GPHA) features a 400-square-foot terrace overlooking San Francisco Bay. A great room spans 3,500 square feet.
The luxury building offers top-shelf services and amenities, such as a 24/7 “friendly arrival team” (a door keeper, desk attendant, security, porters and valets), a 20,000-square-foot fitness and Pilates center, saline lap-pool, screening room, owner’s lounge, landscaped outdoor terrace with numerous fire-pits, wine storage, a private dining room and children’s playroom, according to the property listing.
The seller is tech-industry veteran and former Oracle executive Craig Ramsey, who bought the penthouse for $13 million from late venture capitalist Tom Perkins in 2016, according to public records.
The Millennium Tower caused alarms in 2016 after reports of the glistening high-rise sinking as much as a foot into the ground and leaning by as much as 6 inches.
“I knew the building was tilting,” Ramsey told the Wall Street Journal in a recent article. “I got a very good discount because of that fact.” He said he was confident the issue would be resolved.
After years of structural work to stabilize the building and correct the tilt, the skyscraper is fully anchored to bedrock, with street-side construction scheduled to be complete later this year, according to a Sotheby’s International Realty representative.
Listing agent Gregg Lynn of Sotheby’s International Realty/San Francisco Brokerage told WSJ that he sees signs of the high-end market picking up in San Francisco.
