If you're like me, and have an extra $27,500,000 burning a hole in your pocket, why not spend it on Tony Bennett's old pad in Belvedere?
(Insert "Left my heart in San Francisco" joke here)
Bennett's tiny 9500 square-foot old place has only six bedrooms, with just five full, and three partial bathrooms, but is probably suitable for most single families out there.
The listing goes like this:
Sited on the western-most promontory of Belvedere Island with the Bay directly below and unobstructed views from Mount Tamalpais through Sausalito, the Golden Gate Bridge and the entire San Francisco skyline, this property truly exemplifies the "belvedere." Warren Callister designed, west-side waterfront with 5 bedrooms, 4 full and 3 half-baths in the main residence & separate 1-bedroom, 1-bath guest apartment with kitchen & living room. Large formal living & dining rooms with French door access to view-side terraces & 3 level lawn areas, intimate library with fireplace, office with built-ins & Mt. Tam & water views, & top-floor master… suite with his and her baths and dressing areas and private view-side terrace. Five fireplaces, 3-car enclosed garage and additional parking for 7 cars, and gated access. Approx. 9,500 sq. ft. of covered space, including the main residence, garage and guest quarters, and 6 bedrooms, 5 full and 3 half-baths, Belvedere prominence and world-coveted views.
If you can afford the estimated $161,693 a month payment, this could be the perfect second house for you!
