While Sharon Stone was largely unknown when she appeared in Basic Instinct, the role made her a household name overnight. After her star-making performance, Stone took on a number of femme fatale roles, appearing in films like Sliver and Casino, the latter of which earned her an Academy Award nomination.

In 1998, Stone and her then-husband, American journalist Phil Bronstein, purchased an 8,500-square-foot home in San Francisco’s Sea Cliff neighborhood, which is famous for its ocean views. At the time, the pair purchased the Italiante-style mansion for $6 million. In 2005, after the couple divorced, the property was sold for $13 million.
Now, Sharon Stone’s former home is on the market again, and it’s being listed at a much higher price tag. The property is currently listed at $39 million, making it the most costly home listing in the entire Bay Area.
While the property may be expensive, it has a lot to offer its future buyer. When the mansion was constructed in 1908, there were no other homes in the Sea Cliff area. Although the property has since been renovated, it still offers plenty of Victorian charm.
The property has eight bathrooms and seven bedrooms, including a primary bedroom with two dressing rooms, his-and-her bathrooms, and a spacious walk-in closet. Throughout the room, you can spot hand-crafted molding that’s original to the house. The mansion’s other bedrooms also have lovely features, including Juliet balconies and walk-out terraces.
Throughout the property’s main level, there are picture windows offering views of both the ocean and the Golden Gate Bridge. The walls are painted a creamy shade of white, which contrasts beautifully with the home’s dark wood accents. On this level, you’ll find a formal living and dining room, a two-floor library, and a den with its own private fireplace.
The mansion’s top floor has not one but two kitchens, which are fully outfitted with Viktor and Rolf appliances. This level of the home also includes an activity room, gym, and sauna. It’s a fantastic space for recreation, and it’s also ideal for entertaining guests.
On the outside of the property is a spacious terrace that looks right out onto the ocean. The home also has a lounge area with multiple sun decks and stairs that provide private access to the beautiful Baker’s Beach. Even though the mansion is right on the beach, it also has plenty of greenery.
Although the property has some old-fashioned touches, it also has lots of modern conveniences, including keyless entry and an integrated sound system. Thanks to its video security system, the home is well-protected. The entire property is beautifully maintained and is turnkey ready.
From the charming turn-of-the-century details inside the home to the stunning scenery that surrounds the property, it’s clear that this mansion is truly one of a kind. While Sharon Stone no longer lives here, there are quite a few celebrities in the neighborhood, including Schitt’s Creek star Eugene Levy and Metallica’s Kirk Hammett. This spectacular home is sure to make someone very happy.
