950 Lombard, San Francisco

$45 Million

Legendary Gardened Estate with Bay Views

Year Built: 1907

Lot Size: 15,736 sq. ft. (approx.)Land: 0.36 acres (approx.)

Located one block away from the famed curved part of Lombard, this Russian Hill abode, located at 950 Lombard, takes up two hillside lots. The home is an amalgamation of two lewks—a circa-1907 shingled Willis Polk house fused with a contemporary construction. The gated entrance opens to a garden with olive trees and an outdoor kitchen. There’s also a dining table and fireplace, and that’s before you even step foot indoors.

Inside you’ll find all of its interior past erased in favor of a modern look (think concrete, open, airy, bright) making up the roughly 9,500-square-foot estate.

Highlights include a two-story subterranean art galley (humidity controlled, of course); glass elevator to all levels; marble-encased master bathrooms; 850-square-foot wellness center with massage room; and a concrete tunnel-like drive that leads to a four-car garage, which Greg Malin, developer of Troon Pacific, likens to “the bat cave.”

House Porn is for all of us who are curious about other cities, and how much it costs to live there. There's nothing wrong with a little fantasy.
