A stunning replica of the Le Petit Trianon in Versailles France, Presidio Heights Trophy Property is back on the market. Once owned by tech entrepreneur Halsey M. Minor (the founder of CNET fame) and asking as much as $25M, 3800 Washington Street, San Francisco Landmark and one of the City’s most grand estates can now be yours at a reduced price of $19,989,000.
Originally constructed between 1902 and 1905, this local version of Marie Antoinette’s Petit Trianon features 18,000 square feet with nine bedrooms and eight bathrooms, as well as a 2,618 square foot guest home with three bedroom and three bathrooms and an extra lot that’s currently being used as the property’s big backyard. This stunning property also boasts 4 kitchens, 9 fireplaces, 7-car garage, elevator access to all levels and a grand ball room with period detailing.
With massive marble pillars, sweeping staircases and a wall of stained-glass windows, it not looks as ordinary family home, but for Halsey M. Minor, it certainly was. He bought the property in 2007 for about $22 million, and hired Michael S. Smith, a celebrity decorator who would go on to make over the White House for the Obamas to redo it for $15 million.
