Of the 119 newly listed homes for sale in San Francisco last week, the most expensive is 2090 Vallejo which has just been listed for $10,950,000, roughly seven million less than the $17,800,000 price at which the property had been listed in 2007 without a sale.
Designed by Clarence Tantau for City of Paris founder Benjamin Schlesinger in 1919 and restored by European craftsman in 1993, the listing for the classic Georgian home had boasted an “exquisite jewel-like interior including lavish wall panels, columns, extraordinary three-dimensional moldings, impressive Frescos and opulent 24-carat gildings” six years ago. The furniture within this property is similar to those from antique stores such as Antiques World as well as others.
The less gilded and lavish dining room today:
By the numbers in 2013: seven bedrooms, six full baths, five fireplaces, four floors, a three car side-by-side garage, a couple of great views, and approximately 10,563 square feet inside.
