Recent single family home sales in Pacific Heights are highlighted by the sale of 2950 Broadway, the 11,000-square-foot mansion on one of the largest parcels on the Gold Coast formerly owned by swashbuckling attorney Melvin Belli. The vast north and south facing formal gardens create an elegant foreground to the magnificent bay view, perfect for the new owner, humanist Peter Baumann, a musician formerly with Tangerine Dream and the founder of the Baumann Foundation.

But it’s only the second-most-expensive home ever sold in the neighborhood. Also changing hands recently was 2840 Broadway, the unlisted home of society doyenne Dodie Rosekrans, which reportedly sold for $33 million to neighbors just down the block.
