The San Francisco real estate market is full of pricey properties and the former estate of the late superstar lawyer Melvin Belli is one of the biggest. The Wall Street Journal's Private Properties column reports that the home now belongs to a businesswoman who bought the home in 1992 for around $6.5 million. She's looking for a big return on her investment, the home is now listed at $39.5 million.
The home does occupy an enviable spot in Pacific Heights and does have great lines. It was created by San Francisco architect, Frederick H. Meyer for Stetson G. Hindes, a prominent engineer whose firm constructed the drydock at Pearl Harbor and other major projects. The home makes the best use of the views, providing them with a formal framework that is far from California casual. The home has six bedrooms and there is both a large main kitchen with a butler's pantry and catering room as well as a second kitchen on the lower floor. The master suite has two seating areas and views of the bay and the home's exquisite landscaping below. This property also includes an elevator, 3,000+ bottle wine cellar and garage parking for 4 cars.
