In the 1920s, Piedmont was known as the “City of Millionaires” because it had the most per square mile of any U.S. city. That reputation has followed into the 21st century as the Bay Area’s well-heeled continue to be drawn to the city’s acclaimed schools, Mayberry-esque tree-lined streets, 44 acres of parkland and picturesque boulevards blooming with flowers in the center.

Historic mansions have naturally blossomed here too, after nearly a century.  This exquisite estate, built in 1928, pays homage to Piedmont’s tradition of residential elegance. Listed by Joel Goodrich of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in San Francisco for $8,385,000, the 21-room mansion possesses a stately presence on 1.13 acres of lush green space.

“Major renovations over time create a seamless blend of timeless luxury and historical grandeur,” reveals Goodrich.  “The high, soaring ceilings, grandly-proportioned rooms, glamorous detailing and fabulous indoor-outdoor spaces are wonderfully suited to grand-scale entertaining, as well as a contemporary relaxed California lifestyle.”
