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 San Francisco's highest streets 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 at the time of sale, 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.

Welcome to 2250 Vallejo Street, the most expensive home sold in the city of San Francisco in 2016.

The building was originally built in 1901 for wealthy fish-packing mogul James Madison — no, not the president. Its facade was completely restored to its original beaux-arts beauty.

The top-to-bottom restoration of the property took two years to complete.

After being converted to housing for wounded soldiers from World War II, the home spent 50 years as an apartment building.

It was decided that the exterior would be preserved, but the interior would be completely ripped out.

The newly open floor plan allows one to sit at the dining room table and still look out over San Francisco Bay.

The gourmet chef's kitchen is also completely new.

A total of five complete bedroom suites are spread throughout the house.

The marble of the bathroom is luxurious.

The huge glass windows that look down on the city below are another new addition, and you can slide them open to walk out onto the balcony.

The dining room is lined with rich dark wood.

This spiral staircase is gorgeous, but there's no need to take it — the mansion also has an elevator.

Much of the house's furniture has been imported from Italy.

The backyard includes a small patch of incredibly green grass.

There are also two other bedrooms joined by a shared bathroom.

The top floor is the spa room.

It doubles as a roof deck with a gas fire pit, indoor steam room, and infinity edge pool.

This just might be the best view in San Francisco.
