SAN FRANCISCO— Are you a big spender who's looking to buy in San Francisco? We've mapped the 25 most expensive homes for sale in the city. Head on over for all the details (including jaw-dropping prices) for each abode.

DOLORES PARK—Dolores Park's renovation plan was finally finalized after about a trillion community meetings to make sure everyone was on board with the changes. Unfortunately that hasn't stopped one person from appealing the project over the two off-leash dog play areas because "2 off-leash dog play areas are by no means acceptable to many families with school-aged children who are using this park." The appellant failed to see that the total amount of dog run area in the new design is less than what currently exists, but the appeal still has to be addressed, therefore stalling the project.

NOB HILL—San Francisco's most expensive one bedroom landed on the market last year asking $4.495M. The very shiny abode (think gilded and mirrored everything) didn't receive any offers, so it hacked $545K off its price. It's still the most expensive one bedroom for sale in the city.

EXCELSIOR—Ever been to Balboa Park? If not, head this way to learn all about the big park, which is spread across 25 acres and full of amenities for sporty types.

LOWER PACIFIC HEIGHTS—Curious what the cheapest real estate is in Lower Pac Heights? Inventory's very low, but we still managed to map the five least expensive. We're particularly fond of the 1-bedroom loft on Sutter that's asking $799K.
