260 Green Bay Window View
Touting “never before on the open market,” originally home to our “Cable Car Lady” Friedel Klussmann, and purchased for $1,700,000 in 1988, what was once a San Francisco farmhouse built in 1936 has been transformed into a four (plus) bedroom high-end view home with landscaped terraces and balconies on 3 levels atop Telegraph Hill.
Now very much on the open market and asking for $12,900,000 for 260 Green.
∙ Listing: 260 Green Street (4/4.5) – $12,900,000 [sfproperties.com] [MLS]
Mrs. Friedel Klussmann (1896 – 1986) [wikipedia.org]

    “tiny kitchen for 13 mill..”
    The servants will clearly suffer with the tiny kitchen.

    I really like the house, but it is close to a sheer cliff and has a good, not great, location. For $13 million, I just don’t know.

    I wonder what the Planning Department thought about Friedel Klussmann and her fight to save the Cable Cars? Its a great story on the wiki that this one links to.
    They probably would have poo-poo’d her and the cars as elitist and insufficient to serve the disabled specifically and social justice goals generally.

    did they mistakenly put a 1 at the front of that price?

    Absolutely beautiful. There are two kitchens, and I would be happy to live on the lower level.

    Wow! Amazing. Check out the floorplans before making comments. There is a full kitchen near the dining room. And the Master suite is enormous. Not sure it’s $13M, but someone with the money could fall in love with it, so worth a try.
    Who lives there now?

    Property shark lists Sandra Mosbacher as trustee… and google returns her husband, Oil mogul Robert A. Mosbacher. He died earlier this year. What fun/nice view a little (or a lot) oil money can bring….

    Here is obit on Robert Mosbacher, buddy of the Bush family and one-time Secretary of Commerce.

    IF this is a SFH why on earth does this home have two kitchens?

    checked it out – 2 kitchens, smaller one for parites, I guess. It’s not wood but chinese red laquer paint, stunning. What a view! beautiful rooms and finishes. Huge bonus is a ton of off street parking. Easily 10 cars.
