Go inside the most expensive home in San Francisco, on the market for $28 million

What does the most expensive house in one of America’s most expensive cities look like?

According to Curbed SF, 2250 Vallejo, a circa-1901 mansion-turned-contemporary dream home built on one of San Francisco’s highest streets, just became the most expensive listing in the city.

Meticulously refurbished on the outside and completely recreated on the inside, the 9,095-square-foot home is a rare mix of modern luxury and historical character. It has seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms spread out over three floors of space.

Neal Ward of Neal Ward Properties has the listing.

The building was originally built in 1901 for wealthy fish-packing mogul James Madison (no, not the president). Its outdoor facade was completely restored to its original Beaux-Arts beauty.

The top-to-bottom restoration of the property took two years to complete.

After being converted to housing for wounded soldiers from WWII, the home spent 50 years as an apartment building.

It was decided that the exterior would be preserved, but the interior would be completely ripped out.

This spiral staircase is gorgeous, but there's no need to take it -- the mansion also has an elevator.

Much of the house's furniture has been imported from Italy.

The backyard includes a small patch of incredibly green grass.

There are also two other bedrooms joined by a shared bathroom.

This might just be the best view in San Francisco.
