Here is San Francisco’s most expensive rental. It has to be seen to be believed

Ambassador to Austria Trevor Traina is going to rent his home for $55,000 a month

Trevor Traina, tech entrepreneur and U.S. ambassador to Austria is listing his San Francisco home for rent.

According to an article in The Wall Street Journal by Katherine Clarke, when it lists, the home will be the most expensive rental in all of San Francisco, one of the most expensive rental markets in the nation.

Traina’s home is on the Gold Coast, in a neighborhood called Pacific Heights, which is known for its lustrous views of the bay and its cache of California gentry.

The 10,890 square-foot, seven-bedroom home will list for a whopping $55,000 per month while Traina is away in Austria fulfilling his role as ambassador.

According to the article, Traina will leave the home fully furnished, complete with art pieces by Damien Hirst, Robert Rauschenberg, Diane Arbus and Andy Warhol.

Neill Bassi of Sotheby’s International Realty will be the listing agent for the property, and according to him, Traina is looking to lease the property for a one- to two-year term.

Traina is the grandson of Wiley Buchanan, a former U.S. Ambassador to Austria, and he has founded five technology companies. President Donald Trump nominated Traina as Ambassador to Austria in January.

This is how the house is described in the listing:

Designed with art and grand entertaining in mind, this 1904 Georgian estate offers seven bedrooms, six full and four half baths, a wealth of formal and informal living spaces, a light-filled conservatory, a south-facing garden and three-car garage parking. As the current owner—who worked principally with Ann Getty on the design—told Forbes, “It’s a handsome, dignified house. We wanted its look to give a nod to history and tradition, but also a sense of youth and wit."
