2250 Vallejo, a circa-1901 mansion that was previously San Francisco’s most expensive home, has finally sold, according to Curbed SF.

The mansion turned contemporary dream home was built on one of highest streets in hilly San Francisco and was most recently asking $25 million, making it the priciest in the city limits. It first listed for $28 million in November 2015. Last week, an unknown buyer closed on the house for $21.8 million, according to public record.

Though another mansion, 2820 Scott Street, was listed at a higher price in June, that listing expired in September, making 2250 Vallejo San Francisco’s most expensive home on the market when it was sold, even after a $3 million price chop earlier this year.

That price also makes it San Francisco’s most expensive sale in 2016, Curbed says.

Meticulously refurbished on the outside and completely recreated on the inside, the 9,095-square-foot home is a rare mix of modern luxury and historical character. It has seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms spread out over three floors. Neal Ward Properties had the listing.
