Is This San Francisco Bay Mansion Too Slick for Regular Living?

More

Location: San Francisco, California

Price: $9,250,000

Tucked behind an imposing concrete wall, this Stanley Saitowitz-designed steel townhouse in the San Francisco neighborhood of Cow Hollow inspired some vitriol in the comments when Curbed SF posted about it last month. The glassy abode is asking a heady $9,250,000 and the clean lines and dark (read: dusty) wood floors haven't exactly been a crowd-pleaser in the home market. It all photographs well, thanks to frameless frosted glass railings, a hinged wall of a front door, and colorful back garden. But sometimes what's fit for the glossy pages of a design magazine isn't exactly livable. There are plenty of amenities to sweeten the deal, like a media room, a three-car garage, tricked out bathrooms, and a rock garden out front, but $9,250,000 is a lot to pay to feel unfulfilled.
