Sharon Stone’s Beachfront San Francisco Mansion Lists for $39 Million
Now the city’s most expensive listing, the Italianate villa features direct views of the Golden Gate Bridge
There’s nothing basic about Sharon Stone’s erstwhile San Francisco manse, an Italianate charmer with breathtaking views of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. The Hollywood legend owned the 1908 estate, which is located in the waterfront Sea Cliff enclave, from 1998 to 2005 along with then-husband, San Francisco Chronicle editor Phil Bronstein. Now, the current owners have placed the seven-bedroom home on the market with a $39 million price tag, making it the city’s most expensive listing.
Built by a prominent local family in the aftermath of the devastating 1906 earthquake that leveled much of the city, the 8,500-square-foot abode was once the only home in the area—built even before the Golden Gate Bridge. Organized around a south-facing courtyard, the residence features a bevy of Old World–inspired details, among them graceful arched doorways, dark wood moldings, and a Juliette balcony overlooking the water.
The main level includes a remodeled chef’s kitchen and formal dining area, as well as gilded ceilings and elaborate fireplaces. Upstairs features a primary suite with dual dressing rooms and baths, plus three additional en-suite bedrooms. The third floor, meanwhile, comes with a family lounge equipped with a wet bar, plus a guest suite with its own private terrace.
Aside from the views, perhaps the biggest selling point is the property’s direct access to Baker Beach, a popular local hangout, thanks to a steep staircase that winds down the lush rear side of the property and ends in the sand. This rare beach house in the Golden City is likely to be snapped up quickly.
