It’s like the hotel version of a Cinderella story. You know, if Cinderella had already been super rich.
According to Fortune, San Francisco’s Payne Mansion, which was listed on Airbnb for $10,000 a night, is being transformed into a hotel and restaurant specializing in California-style French cuisine.
The mansion, which was founded in 1881, will be renamed Mansion on Sutter, and will open in the fall of 2018. The restaurant will appropriately be named 1881.
One of the most extraordinary parts of the mansion, other than its pre-Victorian charm and gilded good looks, is that it is one of the few Victorian homes in San Francisco that is still standing after the 1906 earthquake, Fortune reported.
It was purchased earlier this year by entrepreneur Bernard Rosenson, who bought it for $12 million, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
“The 1881 will feature a full bar and the menu/concept for the restaurant is being developed as we speak,” Rosenson’s son, Jonathan, told the San Francisco Chronicle in April.
The new hotel, located at 1409 Sutter Street, will likely be a welcome addition to the neighborhood. Who wouldn’t want to live out some American version of Downton Abbey at this place?
