…That $70,000,000 penthouse atop the St. Regis in San Francisco that we discussed a few months back? Well children, hold on to your wigs because there are now heaps architectural renderings of the 20,000+ square foot doo–plex penthouse that have been posted on the always interesting Socketsite. Even more dee–lishus renderings can be seen here.
Listing information reveals that in addition to the six bedrooms, seven full and four half bathrooms, there are 4 terraces totalling nearly 3,000 square feet, a two story entrance foyer with a waterfall, natch, 22-foot high floor to ceiling windows wrapping around the high drama living room, a dining room for a dozen or more, a game room, library and lounge, and two kitchens, one for daily use and one for catering.
The 2,500 square foot master bedroom suite includes a lounge area, private terrace, an office, a gym with steam and sauna, gigantic dual custom fitted closets with fur storage and changing areas, and a triangular shaped infinity edged bathtub that holds an astounding 525 gallons of water. If you can pay this much for a home the realities of a dire water shortage in California are, apparently, completely irrelevant.
There are also four fireplaces, parking for six cars, 360 degree views, a wine storage room, a 13-seat home cinema and an executive office suite with a conference room.
We still think seventy million clams for a penthouse in San Francisco (or anywhere) is egregiously optimistic, particularly with the economy heading down the terlit. However, with all these lavish and dee–luxe amenities, as well as the five-star services of the St. Regis, a crazy rich billionaire with an obsession for looking at the TransAmerica Pyramid could really get their Howard Hughes on here.
