9 Start slideshow

This week, we are lusting after Lee Herbst Gruhn’s opulent Bay Area mansion, whose interiors were recently designed by 27 of the West Coast’s best design firms during the 2013 San Francisco Decorator Showcase. We are talking about gold gilt trim on every possible surface the eye can see.
Now, for only $9,650,000, you can be the owner of this breathtaking family house that comes with a mural that Herbst Gruhn painted herself and “living walls,” if you are into that kind of thing.
What do you think about our dream house of the week? Tell us in the comments below!

The mansion was originally built in 1899 by renowned architect Ernest
Coxhead and belonged to the patron of the arts Herbst Gruhn family.

The living room was designed by Catherine Kwong Design and
inspired by "Mick and Bianca Jagger—the early years."

The salon features a mix of metal, wool, and velvet materials, designed by Leverone Design Inc.

The "living wall" installed behind the bathtub.

A dressing room to fall in love with.

Much of the art throughout the house was purchased from Art Basel and Design Miami.

Massage room surrounded by Bay area views.

The master sitting room.

A study room, titled "Secluded Writer's Retreat."
