Historic Nob Hill Home with ‘Spectacular’ San Francisco Views Asks $ 17 Million


Known as the Boggs-Shenson House, the beautiful bay town space is a local landmark and may even have a connection to celebrities.

First purchased in 1906 by Angus and Mae Boggs, the original structure of the property was destroyed by the devastating city earthquake and fire a month later. A second building was constructed in its place, and over time the original two-story house built for the Boggs was extended to four floors plus an elevator.

In the 1940s, Mae sold the house to brothers and doctors Ben and Jess Shenson, according to Business intern.
