A wealthy art collector from Philadelphia purchased the Pacific Heights lot at 2800 Pacific Avenue for $10 in 1899 and commissioned Ernest Coxhead to build a Georgian mansion upon the site for $12,854. In 1967, the 8,120-square-foot home was purchased by the late Adrian and Lee Herbst Gruhn and dubbed the Herbst Manor.
Put on the market for $12,500,000 in 2011 following Lee’s passing in 2010, the mansion was relisted for $10,950,000 in 2012 and then again for $11,995,000 earlier this year following a Decorator Showcase makeover.
Reduced to $9,650,000 in September, the price has since been cut to $8,900,000 for the Manor with six bedrooms and five bathrooms, including the master with a living green wall:
