It’s time again for Maximum Luxury, the feature where we pause to gawk at the most prohibitively expensive home listings in San Francisco simply because it’s in our nature to stare at them.
Last week we covered what would be the single most expensive home sold in city history, but a close second to that comes by way of the penthouse at 2006 Washington, also vying for that same title as well as another potential record, since at $45 million this ultimate party pad would command well over $8,000 per square foot and demolish the record set by this very same condo back in 2015.
That $32 million sale only gave way to an even more expensive renovation by interior designer Suzanne Tucker, the results of which you can see here, assuming of course you CAN see them and your senses aren’t overwhelmed by sheer decadence.
Note that in an oft-referenced irony, this is the penthouse but not the top floor, since there actually is a small condo one floor above this.
However, once upon a time this was the highest in this celebrated beaux-arts building, so everyone has essentially grandfathered in the title for it, perhaps for the sake of continuity.
This three bed, five bath showpiece is currently nearing 50 days on the market.
