The Pritikin Mansion—also known simply as 47 Chenery and owned by former ad man Bob Pritikin—splashed onto the market in early September for the ambitious price of $12.5M. The quirky estate is sort of like the Glen Park version of Hearst Castle, without all the history. The house is tucked away behind the houses that line Chenery, Randall, Dolores and 30th Street, and is situated on a 24,624 square foot lot.
The “Neo Classical-style” main house has an interior swimming pool with retractable roof, park-like grounds with wacky sculptures and, uh, uniquely designed rooms. Also included are a separate three-unit building, and parking for up to 15 cars. (The parking is actually zoned for four condo units, in case you want to do your part to create more housing in San Francisco.)
The seller reduced the price last week, so 47 Chenery is available now for $11M. What else is in that range right now? A six-bedroom house on Green Street in Pacific Heights ($11,550,000); 1032 Broadway in Nob Hill ($12M, on the market since 2014); and a Russian Hill Tudor Revival at 898 Francisco in Russian Hill ($12M).
