A San Francisco mansion that boasts a living room the size of a tennis court, which could make it one of the largest living rooms in the city, was relisted for $10.25 million last week.
The mansion is part of a residential compound known as Chenery House, which also includes a rental building, gardens and courtyards occupying a full city block in the Glen Park neighborhood.
The compound first came onto the market for $12.5 million last September and the price was dropped to $11 million one month later. The listing was temporarily removed in January and re-posted Feb. 15 with another $750,000 reduction, listing records show.
“The high-end market over $10 million is always very subjective, so it is a question of finding the right buyer for a unique property,” said Joel Goodrich, listing agent of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.
The French neoclassical mansion has five bedrooms, five bathrooms, a living room and an indoor pool with a retractable glass roof. The 0.57-acre estate also has a three-unit rental building with a 15-car parking lot, according to the listing.

The current owner, Robert C. Pritikin, an author and ad executive who is best known for creating Folgers Coffee television commercials, couldn’t be reached for comment.
The mansion has an eclectic collection of art mostly from the legendary Mansion Hotel in Pacific Heights Mr. Pritikin owned from 1977 to 2000, including a portrait of Prince Phillip and a wall-sized replica of Rembrandt’s “The Night Watch,” Mr. Goodrich previously told Mansion Global.
Mansion Hotel was built in 1887 by silver mining tycoon Richard Chambers and converted to a high-end hotel.
Mr. Pritikin has hosted many social events over the years in his mansion, including his famed annual Labor Day party for 850 guests, with Carol Channing, Mickey Rooney, and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, of California, among them, according to Mr. Goodrich.
