Sea Cliff Contemporary, Estate of the Day
Today's home has some of the best views of San Francisco's Golden Gate bridge I've ever seen. The home in the Sea Cliff area is set high on a cliff and behind a gated drive. The wood and glass home is cantilevered over 55 steel pillars. The decor is pretty dated and there are some questionable finish choices such as the black stone and dark wood in the kitchen and the pale carpeting in the main areas. The listing says that there are approved plans for a huge addition of around 3,500 square feet which makes sense since the home is less than 4,000 square feet and has just two bedrooms.
A Socket Site post from last year provides more details. The home was listed at $18 million last year but was as low as $9 million back in 2002. It has been on and off the market for ten years. Frank Lloyd Wright may have done a preliminary design for the site but his drawings bear only faint resemblance to this home. It is listed at $11.5 million.
