The monumental mansion is located at the corner of Washington and Octavia streets. It's not just on that corner though, it's spans the entire length of Octavia down to Jackson Street...that's 1/4 of an entire city block! Originally built and owned by the Spreckels family, a powerful and influential family in the sugar business in the early 1900's, this mansion has survived it's share of disasters. It lived through the 1906 and 1989 earthquakes with not much more than a few broken picture frames.

Not only is this one of the most ostentatious homes in San Francisco, it's now home to famed author Danielle Steele.
