Most Expensive Penthouses in the World: San Francisco

Aug 2 2015

This series highlights the most exclusive penthouses from the most prominent cities on Earth. Join us on a tour of the best penthouses San Francisco has to offer.

1. $49,000,000 – Lumina Penthouse, 201 Folsom Street

Surround yourself with iconic views of San Francisco landmarks such as the Bay Bridge, Ferry Building and Downtown Financial District from this stunning two-level penthouse.

13,800 sq.ft.

2 Kitchens

5 Bedrooms

5 Bathrooms

2 Half-bathrooms

8 Terraces

2. $30,000,000 – Überexclusive Pacific Heights Penthouse, #10 2006 Washington Street

Penthouses in this post are ranked by total purchase price, rather than price per square foot. If we were to consider the size vs cost/sq.ft., #10 2006 Washington, frankly speaking, leaves its competition in the dust, putting it on the same level as the most extravagant penthouses of New York, Manhattan, Hong Kong, Paris, London, and the like...

10th floor*

5,500 sq.ft.


Considered to be one of the most prestigious addresses in San Francisco, 2006 Washington was called 'home' by the most important names in business, finance and philanthropy - with the current owner being a young Bay Area entrepreneur.

To get into this building as a resident you not only have to have enough money, but also pass an interview with building's residents. Worry not, there aren't that many of them, as each one of the units occupies an entire floor of this 11-storey building.

*Unit #10 (this penthouse) is not actually on the top floor of the building, but the 11th floor unit is half the size, so 10th floor has traditionally been known as THE penthouse.

The sale of the penthouse unit was kept in strict privacy, with very little information available as to who the owner is, and what the residence currently looks like, though the following photos should give you a good idea.

3. $28,000,000 – St. Regis Penthouse, 188 Minna Street

3 unit conversion*

20,000 sq.ft.

HOA $13,158.14/m

6 Bedrooms

6 Bathrooms

4 Half-bathrooms

2,900 sq.ft. terraces


*Penthouse was created out of the 3 units on the top 2 floors of the tower.
