The home of a notorious art scammer, an enviable Mediterranean style mansion in the posh Sea Cliff neighborhood of San Francisco, is now offered for sale at $15 million, after a previusly listing at $19 million.
In 2015, Luke Brugnara, a.k.a. "Lucky Luke," was sentenced to seven years in prison after he refused to pay for $11 million in art delivered to his home. All the artwork has been recovered, except for a $3 million Edgar Degas, "Little Dancer."
Listed with Anne Herrera of Sotheby's International Realty, Brugnara's 1925 home at 224 Sea Cliff Avenue has some issues from deferred manintenance to its bankruptcy sale. Yet, the coral-colored manse offers unmatched Pacific Ocean and Golden Gate views, waterfront access to China Beach, and grand living spaces perfect for displaying art.
