Villa Belvedere, a large and luxurious estate on the San Francisco Bay is being offered for a private auction sale. Its original list price of $45 million makes it the most expensive home in San Francisco. The current record is held by a Broadway Street home which was listed for sale in mid 2012. But the Villa Belvedere scores over the home in several parameters. The Villa has been built on a gated and lavishly landscaped lot measuring 1.14 acres. The residence, which has been built on three levels, provides 15,000 square feet of living space. Part of the proceeds from the auction will benefit the Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. Another portion of the proceeds has been earmarked for a charity of the buyer’s choice.
The Home Offers Breathtaking Views of the Bay and the City
The reserve price for the luxurious estate has been fixed at $25 million and the bids will start from there. The location of the villa is such that it offers unobstructed and breathtaking views of the Golden Gate Bridge, City of San Francisco, Bay Bridge and Sausalito from practically every room built at different levels. The new owner could enjoy the upcoming America Cup Challenger Series and Final Races from the home itself. The Villa had got a makeover when it became the site for the 41st Marin Designer’s Showcase. Twenty four of the most renowned design firms had taken up a room each and transformed it by decorating it in their own personal style for the occasion.
The High Tech Home is Accessible Through Phone or Internet
Villa Belvedere boasts of wrap-around multi-level decks and expansive spaces for indoor and outdoor living. The trophy home features seven newly designed en-suite bedrooms along with nine full and two half bathrooms. The master suite has a separate wing of its own and the owner’s privacy is not disturbed even if there are guests on the property. The high end features include a state of the art home theater; a temperature controlled 2,000 bottle wine cellar, a gym with sauna and steam room and an elevator to access all the three levels. The estate boasts of an outdoor swimming pool measuring fifty feet with poolside cabana and spa. The estate has solar power installations and high-tech integrated technology that allows the owner to access the house remotely through a phone or the internet.
