I came across this mansion located at 2520 Pacific Avenue in San Francisco which was featured at the UK Daily Mail. This 13,000 square foot, nine bedroom house has quite a history. It seems, back during prohibition the home featured a hidden panel in the wall that led to a hidden bar where the Bay Area’s elite would imbibe in forbidden alcoholic beverages.
Built in 1905 on the sugar fortune of the Spreckels family, the home features a walnut-paneled library, wine cellar, and two walk-out terraces with stunning views of the San Francisco Bay, Golden Gate Bridge, the city itself.
