castle on the parkPriced at nearly $10,000,000, this former church is still a bargain 585 per square feet. At 17,000 square feet, this may not be the largest single family home in San Francisco. It nominally has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, but it also has an enormous living room and 4 to 6 car parking.

When I toured the home we were asked to remove our shoes before climbing the glass staircase and I have to admit the climb down in bare feet was one of my more thrilling Tuesday Tour experiences. This property is looking for just the right owner or a developer to take advantage of it’s R-3 zoning. Could it be you?
