This renovated 1929 home is the top-priced listing in S.F. at $45M

A historic and luxurious San Francisco home, originally built in 1929, has hit the California real estate market for $45 million, a price tag that makes it the most expensive listing in the city, according to Compass real estate firm.

The Albert Farr-designed residence at 3450 Washington Street features contemporary state-of-the-art amenities and Golden Gate Bridge views — plus a hidden cigar bar. The estate spans 9,577 square feet with six bedrooms and 10 bathrooms.

The Presidio Heights mansion, inspired in the style of French Normandy manors, was commissioned by Elsa Guggenhime in 1929. Architects Albert Farr and his partner Joseph Francis Ward were tapped for the design. Farr’s work can be seen in buildings in the San Francisco neighborhoods of Russian Hill, Pacific Heights, Sea Cliff and St. Francis Wood. Whereas the Washington Street estate features a brick façade, many of Farr’s other front exteriors involve brown wooden shingles.

“The architectural symmetry and detail are displayed in the massive brick-accented façade displaying a grand style of a timeless era,” the official property listing states. “The grand proportions reflect Old San Francisco extravagance and elegance at its best.”

The listing goes on to say: “The sense of space is entirely modern, and the soft-toned interiors exude a palpable sense of harmony. “

The home was thoroughly renovated by Matarozzi Pelsinger and Handel Architects in 2016, according to Compass. It last sold for $18 million in February 2014, according to public record.

“The grandeur and elegance of this stately home has been perfected through a ‘down-to-the-studs’ renovation featuring a completely reimagined interior showcasing exquisite timeless finishes throughout, creating a truly rare San Francisco offering,” listing agent Antoine Crumeyrolle of Compass said in a statement to The Bee.

The home was host to the 2010 San Francisco Decorator Showcase.
