The crib measures in the 20,000 square foot range and features dazzling walls of glass. Perched high in the sky atop the St. Regis Hotel and Residences, it's probable that the new undisclosed owner of the pad is not particularly scared of heights.

The spectacular living room features 22-foot ceilings. While the home is completely jaw-dropping now, it didn't always look this way. The unit was actually built and combined from three separate penthouses over two floors, which Curbed estimates to have cost a whopping $56 million.

A view of the elongated formal dining room where diners can take their meals looking out onto our city by the bay (or at least, those with their backs not facing the windows can enjoy the amazing views).

The stunning penthouse was actually bank-owned after real estate magnate VIctor MacFarlane was forced to sell the apartment back to the bank in a deed in lieu of foreclosure after the home failed to sell on the open market. MacFarlane reportedly spent about $56 million building his dream home, which sadly, he never had the chance to live in.

A look down into the luxurious, glass-enclosed living room. According to The Wall Street Journal, the home began showing in September 2011 and sold in a multi-bid situation.

A view of the sleek modern kitchen, which boasts a butler's pantry, as well as a separate catering kitchen.

MacFarlane originally wanted $70 million for the impressive home, which makes sense since he shelled out $56 million building it.
9/23
A view of the billiards/game room. You'll be hard-pressed to find a room in the multi-level penthouse that doesn't boast a view. The only thing that might disrupt the scene is the dense fog that seems to perpetually cloud over our city, especially in the summer months.

The swanky theater boasts seating for nine with an endless array of movies to choose from; however, by the looks of it, it seems like whoever watched a movie last is a big rom-com fan -- any takers for Jerry Maguire, The Notebook, or Sex and the City?

At the time the home began showing in September, it was likely the most expensive bank-owned, single-family residential real estate listing in the country, according to The Wall Street Journal.

With over 20,000 square feet over multiple floors, the very lucky new owner of this brand spanking new apartment will also enjoy an executive office suite and conference room, two laundry rooms (one on each floor because after all, who likes to trudge up and down stairs with a load of dirty clothes?), and of course, the multiple terraces that total 2,900 square feet.

The crown jewel of the bedrooms is the impressive 2,500 square foot master suite, which features a lounge area boasting a double-sided fireplace. Impressed, yet?
15/23
The master bedroom, which is only one of six bedrooms in the spread, enjoys access to the double-sided fireplace, as well some spectacular views of San Francisco that are only attainable from such exclusive vantage points.
16/23
A view of the all-clad marble master bathroom. There are a total of six full baths and four half baths in the luxe penthouse.

A double-headed shower overlooking the city. Most of us don't even have a window in our bathroom, moreover, one that has such a sweet view.
18/23
Step into the massive walk-in closet, every girl's best friend.

Also in the master wing of the home is a fitness room, replete with a sauna, steam room and powder room.
20/23
A view of one of the six bedrooms in the penthouse, all as lavish as this one.

One can only hope that nobody is using a telescope when you're showering in this bathroom, which is boasts a wall of glass on one side.
22/23
Where can you get a crib with 2,900 square feet of private terraces? Likely, no where else in the city, which covets such amazing features in its high priced real estate.
23/23
Not only are there spacious terraces, but each boast 360-degree views of many San Francisco landmarks.
