A Massive 11,000 sq ft Pac Heights Mansion listed with Pac Union at 1250 Pacific at Baker
The last of the Newhall family that owned this Cape Cod tucked away off of Pacific behind another ‘modest’ home passed away a couple of months ago willing this 7 bedroom mansion to a nearby church after living there for 92 years. Yes, 92. In the end it was her and a 24-hour caregiver left on this home with amazing public spaces complete with a replica of a cape cod shingled house – but inside under an atrium that leads into another nautical-like homage to the aft of an 19th century English sailing ship. The caregiver was given the ‘modest’ brick home across the street and the church got the house. The house has a servant wing ala Downton Abbey in addition to a massive outdoor greeting area for your dignitary of choice, working nob and tube electrical systems, antique water heaters and dryers as well as sweeping views north and of the Getty’s apparently. It’s not every day where you can look down on their home right?
Oh, and one thing, there’s no kitchen apart from the one in the basement where all the domestic staff lives. The SF real estate market is hot these days and $16.5M just doesn’t get you what it used to!
Here are some snaps taken during the 45 minutes it took to tour the house. Oh, and forgot to mention there are no showers in the house and we were pretty sure the phone worked!
