About three weeks ago we broke the story about the $65,000,000 mansion hitting the San Francisco market. And although the mainstream press ran with the story about a week later (with nary a nod to good old SocketSite…) we don’t remember any coverage of the following little tidbit submitted by one of our readers:

“The owner has so much $$$ that he actually bought a limestone quarry in France, had each piece custom cut and built there. Then disassembled and sent to SF. The house is completely and utterly soulless, yet I’m sure someone will buy it just because of the material aspect that it is the most expensive house in SF.”

Let’s see, custom French limestone (and no soul) or leftover steel from the Golden Gate Bridge (and a rich history)? So many choices…
