Own a corner of the city’s early 19th century history with this opulent neo-classical estate in San Francisco’s Sea Cliff neighborhood. Listed for a cool $14 million, 308 Sea Cliff Avenue was built in 1922 and many of its original architectural details are still intact.

The custom gated property holds four bedrooms and four and a half baths, as well as a formal living room, dining room, family room, kitchen with breakfast nook, and a bonus room. Among the home’s most notable features is a sweeping staircase, detailed tilework in the foyer, and a charming landscaped garden complete with palm trees and a border of aesthetically pleasing shrubs. Architecturally, the neoclassical home is similar in design to the Old Museum in Berlin, and the White House and Capitol in Washington, D.C. From the photos, 308 Sea Cliff is a distillation of old world romanticism.

Inside, clean touches like hardwood floors and floor-to-ceiling windows create a direct connection to the nearby coastline. Perhaps most surprisingly, however, is the neon green bathroom — the tiling, walls, ceiling and toilet are all colored candy apple green, while the bathtub remains pristine white. A complete departure from the rest of the house, its curious emphasis makes it look like it was designed as the green M&M’s powder room.

Sea Cliff, a neighborhood in San Francisco’s northwestern corner, is known for its expensive homes and front row views of the Pacific Ocean. Famous past and current residents include Ansel Adams, Robin Williams, Sharon Stone, and Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett.
