This quintessential San Francisco property was built by Robert Pritikin, a former advertising executive and author of Christ Was an Ad Man. In 1977 Mr. Pritikin opened up the legendary “Mansion Hotel” in Pacific Heights, reportedly host to Barbara Streisand and Robert Kennedy Jr., amongst others. In 1987, he built Chenery House, which has played host to a number of notable San Francisco events over the years and guests ranging from Carol Channing, Mickey Rooney and Liberace to Mayor Willie Brown, senator Dianne Feinstein and other political figures. The residence has housed an extraordinarily eclectic collection of art ranging from the controversial portrait of Prince Phillip, Benny Bufano sculptures in the gardens and the famous wall-sized replica of Rembrandt’s enigmatic “Night Watch” commissioned by the Lord Mayor of Amsterdam.
