Magnificent Villa Belvedere on Private Auction

Absolutely majestic, Villa Belvedere is the newest and most opulent construction of San Francisco Bay, flaunting 14,000 square feet of living spaces. The property that it sits on is also quite spectacular, measuring 1.14 acres and being professionally landscaped.

The original building was constructed back in the 1930s for Angus MacDonald, but it had many other rich owners over the decades. Redesigned over a 30-year period by architect Sandy Walker, the residence enjoys sweeping views San Francisco, Bay Bridge, Golden Gate Bridge, and Sausalito. Its lush interiors were tastefully appointed by 24 of the world’s best designers. This includes the seven recently-renovated en-suite bedrooms, the 9 full and 2 half bathrooms, and the stunning master bedroom with its separate wing.

Amenities-wise, the plush home has it all: a gourmet kitchen adjacent to the elegant family room, gym with steam room and sauna, home theater50-foot outdoor swimming pool, poolside cabana, wine cellar for 2,000 bottles boasting temperature control system and tasting vault, 3-car garage, and even an elevator that connects the three levels of the house.

Finally, Villa Belvedere is also a Smart House, with solar panels to complete its energy supplies, and state-of-the-art integrated technology which allows the owner to control an impressive number of functions via mobile phone or Internet. The property might soon become the most expensive one on Broadway Street, when it finds its new owner at auction. Its starting bid is $25 million.
