This $25M Bayfront property is the most expensive Marina listing ever

Asking $25 million, 435 Marina Blvd. is the most expensive listing ever to hit the Marina - and by a substantial sum. The current record is held by 3560 Baker, which sold for $8.7 million at the end of June last year, according to MLS data.


But listing agent Camilla Moshayedi says the property, built by a real estate developer who also happens to be a competitive sailor, earns that unheard of asking price based on its raft of unique amenities. "The home is truly unprecedented for the area and offers countless rare features, a striking design, unobstructed views and unparalleled scale," she said. "It is unlike any home built in the Marina before and will be difficult to replicate," she said.


It certainly wasn't an easy feat to build. After buying the property for $5.4 million in 2014, it took over three years to get through the design and planning process, and then over two years to build the home. But when the property was finally completed, the owners — whose grandchildren live in Southern California — found they weren't using it as often as they expected.


Now their years of effort can be someone else's move-in ready property. Despite the record-high price point, "we have received a great deal of interest and showing requests already from potential buyers throughout the Bay Area," said Moshayedi.


"The breathtaking roof deck offers you a front row seat to San Francisco's most iconic skyline including 360-degree views of the Bay, Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Marin, East Bay and the City skyline," said Moshayedi.

The roof deck takes up the full width of the home's front half to take advantage of the water views. On the back side of the roof, there are eight skylights that create an atrium effect on the stairwell.

The floors are connected via this light-filled stairway, though the home also has an elevator. But given that the five-bedroom, 7.5-bath property has over 7,000 square feet, it's remarkable that it only has three levels of indoor space, said Moshayedi. "Most comparable homes in the city are much more vertical in the design, while this home has very large floor plates on each level due to the lot size," she explained.

The sellers are big entertainers and therefore made the kitchen the center of the home, according to Moshayedi. They went top-of-the-line on everything from the Gaggenau appliances to the Bulthaup cabinetry to the Calacatta counters. The Equipex salamander is the same one used to broil and finish off dishes at The French Laundry, she said. It has three sinks and three dishwashers.

There are also three outdoor kitchens. One on the ground floor off the media room, seen here, one right off the kitchen on the main floor and one on the roof deck.

There are also several decks without cooking capabilities, like this one on the main level overlooking the backyard below.

Two large decks span the front of the home. On the main level they connect to the living and dining areas via walls of glass that push back and allow for "endless possibilities for indoor-outdoor entertaining," said Moshayedi.

"You feel that you are outdoors while you are inside, especially on the main level, which has an open floor plan and floor to ceiling glass doors that slide to open on the north and south sides of the home," she said.

The upper level also has an indoor-outdoor connection, and not just in the primary bedroom, seen here. "The owners wanted to make sure that each bedroom suite was spacious and included a luxurious bathroom, closet designed by California Closets, and a distinct outdoor space," said Moshayedi.


There are four bedrooms on this level, and one more on the ground floor as well.

But only the primary bedroom has two bathrooms and two walk-in closets. This one has a soaking tub and shower with a seat. The other has a larger shower, but no tub. "The primary suite is truly exquisite," Moshayedi said.
