As a plugged-in tipster notes, Arthur McLaughlin’s red trucks have been coming and going from the late Dodie Rosenkrans’ Pacific Heights mansion at 2840 Broadway, a Willis Polk designed home adjacent to Ellison’s modern manse on San Francisco’s Billionaire’s Row.
While Sotheby’s is handing the sale of the bulk of the estate’s rather impressive art, jewelry and antiquities collection, let us be the first to tell you it’s Malin who will soon be bringing the Pacific Heights mansion of 17,286 square feet (per tax records) to market.
With 2808 Broadway still on the market for $25,000,000, 2701 Broadway for $32,000,000, 2905 Broadway for $33,900,000, 2901 Broadway for $45,000,000, and 2845 Broadway for $47,000,000, it’s safe to assume the list price for 2840 Broadway will be a bit more than the current tax assessed value of $2,666,615 (purchased for $1.6 million in 1979). In fact, last year’s tax bill of $30,990 for 2840 Broadway will likely be closer to the monthly tax bill for the property once it changes hands.
UPDATE: Another perspective on the property (dead center below) which looks deceptively “little” from the façade, at least relative to its 17,000 square feet.
