Buyer found for nation's priciest bank-owned home
the waterfall in the foyer. And the 2,500-square-foot master bedroom with a hallway just for closets. And the 22-foot glass walls that look out on San Francisco's Arts District. And the fact that this penthouse condo is the most expensive bank-owned residence in the country.
20,000-square-foot penthouse in lieu of foreclosure back in July, just sold the condo. Listed at $35 million, 188 Minna St. was purchased for an eye-popping $28 million,Perched atop the St. Regis luxury residential tower, this six-bedroom, seven-bath (plus four half-baths) palace is practically a private hotel: There's a full gym with a sauna and steam room, 13-seat movie theater, 2,900 square feet of terrace space and parking for six cars.
From my experience (lol) you would need at least 2 full time personal assistants and a bonded service to come in weekly for the heavy duty stuff.
(optional: local catering service to provide at least one meal a day and stock the refrigerator with ready to eat leftovers selected by the owners - personally, my choice would be a Zabars level of Deli - if SF has one.)
Of course, lots of people go broke trying to look good - being that you are the things you own...
