The most expensive property sold so far in San Francisco for 2019 – Photo – Compass
The iconic Pacific Heights mansion, once owned by oil heir William Getty and his philanthropist wife, Vanessa, recently sold by Compass Real Estate in April for $27 million, making the historic five-story, six-bedroom home the most expensive property sold in San Francisco this year. The property was first marketed for $30 million in June and officially listed on the market at $29 million in February.
Located in a prominent corner of San Francisco’s famed Pacific Heights neighborhood, the 107-year-old 9,700 square foot mansion was completely overhauled, which took four years to renovate. Ludovico Mazzola of Compass Real Estate, who represented the property, was specifically hired for this enormous undertaking, considering that a majority of the fixtures, moldings and windows were replaced with a new version constructed to match the original or maintain the style of the house built in 1912. Work included a seismic retrofit. Mazzola has been working with the sellers since the start of his career.
The Gettys purchased the home for $11.5 million in 2002 and Enrique Landa, a San Francisco-based real-estate developer, bought the home from the Gettys in 2015 for $12.5 million as an investment.
