We Are Suckers For "Grandeur & Old World Charm" (2860 Pierce)
Like there’s any chance we could pass up “grandeur & old world charm” or to sneak a peek inside. Unfortunately it's not entirely "old" (or charming).
Designed by Albert Schroepfer (of Dunn & Schroepfer) circa 1931, it’s one parcel with two properties (a 7,000 square foot single-family (2860 Pierce) and four units adjoining (2383 Union)), garages for seven cars and a side lot to store eight (or play hoops).
∙ Listing: 2860 Pierce/2383 Union (4/4 + 4 units) - $16,950,000 [MLS]

Is that a "Ballroom" for real? It looks like my childhood elementary school auditorium in Santa Barbara.

I think the ceiling is a bit low for this style.

Rumor has it that Mid Evil Times is looking at it to open up a branch in the Marina.

I've heard the Addams family may be interested

Now this would make one heck of a showcase house for 2009. The senseless over the top decor is already there.

I agree with the Decorator's Showcase house idea. Lol... However, will there even be a showcase 2009?
Anyway, the owner?/tenant? passed away... He was pretty elderly.

This should be bought by Transylvania for use as their embassy.

I would rent this place for an Octoberfest Polka-Extravaganza. A few Spaten and Bavaria flags and we'd be ready to go.

I cannot believe that the disclosure docs do not include info on the tombs in the crypt.

Cool property...but good luck getting anything above $10M on this property.

Price would greatly depend on the units and the rent they get.

Did this sell?

Still on the market. Cut to $12.5M.

Probably still quite a way to go (down.)
