Decorator showhouses are often a mixed bag. Beautiful but sometimes a hodge podge of decorator styles. This one, the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2006 manages to maintain a uniformly luxe look. Perhaps because they had such a post framework to start with. The Beaux-Arts Mansion was originally built in 1902 for Nelly Mason and was totally rebuilt in 1928 by George Wagner, whose firm built San Francisco City Hall. The home has six bedrooms, an entry foyer with a sweeping three-story staircase, living room, a formal paneled dining room, gourmet kitchen with adjacent family room, a master suite with sitting room, a home office, a recreation room with adjacent media room and a wine cellar. There is also a carriage house and garage on the property. The home has views of the Golden Gate Bridge and has been 'smart-wired', with a Lutron lighting system, a monitored security system and cabling in comtemplation of whole-home audio, video and CCTV capabilities. It is listed at $14.25 million. After the jump, for once too many decorators don't spoil the pot.
