There are bedrooms, and there are boudoirs; entry halls and foyers; family rooms and salons. Celebrating the latter: 2020 Jackson Street, the Hellman Mansion.
The Classic Revival estate acted as the temporary offices of Wells Fargo Bank after the 1906 earthquake, and has housed international leaders and state receptions ever since. The property boasts seven bedrooms, seven and three-half baths, an elevator, formal living and dining rooms and the most stunning, hand-painted kitchen we've ever seen.
Upstairs in the master bedroom, floor to ceiling mirrors flank the boudoir, decorated with hand-painted murals and a crystal chandelier. A third level reveals a state-of-the-art media room and four additional bedrooms, while a sprawling rooftop courtyard offers views of Alcatraz, Angel Island and Marin.
The asking price isn't cheap (it clocks in at a cool $20 million), but this home is as classic San Francisco as it gets: opulent, yet approachable, basking in all of the sophistication the city has to offer.
