If you happened to like “Solaria” (166 Yerba Buena) but the six (plus) car garage just wasn’t going to be big enough, perhaps 168 Yerba Buena will do the trick.

This exquisite structure is inspired by Italian villas along Amalfi Drive on the Mediterranean coast line. The building under construction is two levels over garage/basement. Ground floor has seven car parking or storage for 11 to 12 cars. The structure is one of two SFR’s in a gated enclave with breathtaking Pacific Ocean views. The offering price includes a custom finished home. The buyers have the opportunity to select finishing touches to suit their own individual taste, prior to completion.

168 Yerba Buena is currently on the market for $12,700,000 and together with “Solaria” (which is still available) comprise the newly developed “St. Francis Court.”

Not that it should necessarily matter, but do keep in mind that despite the “St. Francis Court” moniker it’s officially Monterey Heights (but just barely). According to a “plugged-in” tipster, “[t]hese properties missed the “illustrious” St. Francis Wood by a few feet, and the St. Francis Wood sign/gate/column/light post had to be moved over to accommodate the property’s driveway.

  1. The artist’s renderings remind me of something out of Sim City.
    [Editor’s Note: They’re actually not renderings but pictures of a 5’x3’ architectural model.]

  2. It’s a beautiful day in the mansions-with-multiple-parking neighborhood, a beautiful day for a mansion-with-multiple-parking living neighbor, won’t you be mine….

  3. My thoughts exactly. Someone has definitely ridden Trolley to the Neighborhood of Make Believe!

  4. Tinted windows – icky!
    Trully the degenerate character of the rich is palpable in their window tints.

  5. If you missed these two houses when they were for sale at $12.7MM, don’t despair. You can buy 168 Yerba Buena for $6.25MM. This incredible home is an amazing showplace, but it is also designed in such a way to be a perfect family home. While it may not be Pacific Heights, it is more convenient to the Peninsula/Silicon Valley and SFO airport, and instead of Golden Gate Bridge/Bay views, it has a wonderful outlook across St. Francis Wood to the ocean. The day I was there it was cloudy and had rained, yet the Pacific Ocean was a beautiful cerulean blue and the home was filled with an amazing amount of natural light.
    As with most houses in this price range, you get the usual: grand-scale living room, dining room,Gourmet kitchen/appliances etc. and bedroom suites that have their own bathrooms/walk-in closets. With this house, you also get a huge garage that fits 6 cars side-by-side but can store even more – and a private driveway (shared with 2 houses) where you can park another 10 or so off the street. I have never seen anything like this except in the suburbs. Imagine washing your Ferrari in the privacy of your own secluded circular parking area? This amount of parking is unheard of in San Francisco – if you are a car collector, this is the house for you!
    Not to mention a wine cellar and tasting room, gym, meditation room, atrium (create your own Palm Court), waterfalls (operated by remote control) and every room seems to have some access to the outdoors – patios and balconies seem to surround the building.
    If you are looking to spend $6MM+ on a home, you collect cars and wine, like to entertain in a grand way, and want a spectacular contemporary home in the heart of San Francisco, this home is for you. See what you think: http://www.168YerbaBuena.com

  6. Uhh, $950/ft²?? And wedged tight between two houses on the hill? The Hacienda is a much better buy for the money
