The sale represents the highest-known price paid for a San Francisco condo residence, Mr. Lynn said, although the two units are separate and it is not clear if their layouts would allow them to be combined. The previous record was a $28 million penthouse sale at the St. Regis Hotel in 2011, records show.
The Summit apartments, spanning a total of roughly 10,400 square feet, have dramatic spiral staircases and steel-framed, floor-to-ceiling windows. The late Mr. Shultz owned them with his second wife, the socialite Charlotte Mailliard Shultz, who was the city of San Francisco’s longtime chief of protocol. Mrs. Shultz purchased the north penthouse for $3.3 million in 1989 with her then-husband, the late real-estate developer Melvin Swig. After she married Mr. Shultz, the couple bought the south penthouse for around $5 million in 1997. Both died last year; Mr. Shultz at age 100 and Mrs. Shultz at age 88.
Roughly two months after it hit the market, an unidentified buyer has paid the full $29 million asking price for the San Francisco spread where former Secretary of State George Shultz entertained politicians and dignitaries.
Comprising two adjacent duplex penthouses at the Summit condominium in the Russian Hill neighborhood, the property received multiple offers, said Karen Mendelsohn Gould of Compass, who had the listing with colleague Max Armour. Gregg Lynn of Sotheby’s International Realty, who represented the buyer, said a single purchaser bought both units, but declined to identify his client.
