While listed with its “Address Withheld By Seller,” or “Undisclosed,” plugged-in people should recognize the seven bedroom Pacific Heights Italianate mansion that has just returned to the MLS at $24,800,000 as 2820 Scott Street, the 2008 Decorator Showcase.

A boarding house prior to being purchased by the Paige family (think Paige Glass) in December 2005 for “much less” than its list price of $8,500,000, the 16,000 square foot property has since undergone a major renovation, remodeling, and re-decorating.

Unofficially asking $29,500,000 at the time of its Showcasing in 2008, a few months later it was officially listed for $27,500,000 and quickly reduced to $19,975,000 that September. Withdrawn from the market in December of 2008 having failed to find a buyer, 2820 Scott Street became the bachelor pad for the Paige’s then 38-year-old son.
And while the views from within might be limited, the views from the roof deck are not:

    2820 has been on the realtor’s website at this price for months; so it’s not really new to the market. This has zero chance of selling at asking. It’s still a cool, if totally impractical, home however.
    [Editor's Note: More precisely and since updated above, it has just returned to the MLS. It remains on the agent's site listed for $27,000,000.]

    Oh, look! It comes complete with its very own Oscar Awards podium! Perfect for those Oscar parties.

    Much of this house’s storied past has been discussed before, but a family member recently recounted living there in the late 50′s when the house was known as the Pink Palace. It sounds like a wonderful Beat-era boarding house and party pad — many, many great stories of carousing and liberation of all kinds. So much history! I hope the owners enjoy their piece of history.

    is the kitchen large enough to hanger an L1011 or should the photog’s wide angle lens privileges be suspended?
    Dears, learn to use a tripod and your photo editors stitch function. Hint its nowhere near the color enhancing menu.

    In a rich SF neighborhood, its a boarding house. Anywhere else its an SRO or otherwise protected tenancy. As with parking meters, funky zoning, pot clubs and every other nuisance, in this town, the rich get treated right and the rest of us get the shaft.

    A friend’s Dad lived there after (after graduating from law school) in the late 50′s and he told me it was pretty mellow then, but said got wilder after he moved out. He also had a lot of great stories about looking for his first home in Pacific Heights (when most of the homes cost less than a typical new car today)…

    This is a gorgeous property. Many people have seen it when it was the San Francisco Decorator Showcase house. Amazing! The people who attended felt it was one of the best homes recently in the Showcase program. The decorators had done a great job.
