2010 Decorator Showcase Will Be A 1929 Georgian Revival Mansion

From our reader:

The 1929 Georgian Revival mansion @ 3450 Washington is apparently set to be the site of the 2010 Designer Showcase.

Posthumously attributed to Architect Willis Polk (1867-1924) the 8,000+ sq.ft. Presidio Heights home was purchased by Peter Sperling in 2001 for a purported $18 million (story and other high end real estate gossip here), and has been on and off the market ever since.
Still listed on the Joel Goodrich Coldwell Banker website “price upon request”.

So let’s see, not on MLS, but still “available”? Sounds like something for PocketListings.net. Thanks for the tip and thanks for reading!

From Blank Canvas to Decorator Showcase, 2820 Scott gets the nod in 2008

“Since 1977, the annual San Francisco Decorator Showcase has benefited San Francisco University High School’s financial aid program, raising nearly $10 million in its first 30 years. The San Francisco Decorator Showcase is widely considered to be one of the premiere showcase events in the country, featuring the work of the region’s top interior and landscape designers,” and this year they take you inside 2820 Scott, a magnificent eight bedroom, eight and one half bath, 14,000 square foot residence that last changed hands in 2006 (asking $8,500,000), and was (at the time) void of any furniture. Not any more.

You and yours can go check it out April 26-May 26, cost is $30, (Seniors $25).

We have one ticket for Monday May 5th (6-8pm), we cannot use. Who wants it?

2901 Broadway as Decorator Showcase

Not much of a surprise here, but the 10,000 square foot Mansion on the hill will be the next Decorator Showcase home, April 28-May 28.  There has been so much talk about this home, here is your chance to get inside and take a look.  After you leave and think of buying it, just know there is no list price.  As we said about 300 Sea Cliff, how can you put a price on priceless? Make an offer and it just might stick.
