  • San Francisco’s 950 Lombard is the most expensive listing in the city, with a current asking price of $40.5 million.
  • Despite a recent $4.5 million price cut (bringing the listing price down from $45 million), if the home sells at its new reduced asking price, it’ll still shatter the city’s current real-estate record of $38 million.
  • The compound features an infinity pool, six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and a four-car garage.

San Francisco is notorious for its overpriced housing market – 60% of tech workers there say they can’t afford homes – and nowhere is that more evident than in a $40.5 million listing in Russian Hill, the most expensive listing in the city.

The home straddles two hillside lots and has six bedrooms and eight bathrooms, in addition to an array of terraces and wellness features, including an infinity pool, a wellness center, and a Japanese water-filtration system.

Despite a recent $4.5 million price cut (bringing the price down from its original $45 million listing price), if the home sells for its new reduced asking price, it will still shatter the city’s current real-estate record. According to Terri Tiffany, PR counsel to Pacific Union International, that record is currently held by 2712 Broadway on San Francisco’s Gold Coast, which was listed at $42 million and sold for $38 million.

Despite a recent $4.5 million price cut, if it sells at asking price, 950 Lombard will become the most expensive home ever sold in San Francisco, displacing the current record-holder, which sold for $38 million in 2017.
