The allure of platinum is not quite so strong as initially supposed, as this designer house on Russian Hill opts for a huge discount after two months.

The house at 1209 Filbert Street is four stories, four bedrooms, five and a half baths, over 5,600 square feet, and sits right in the middle of choice Russian Hill, two blocks from the Lombard Street curves.

It even carries a LEED Platinum designation for the likes of its rainwater harvest tank, drip irrigation, solar system, and Forest Stewardship Council approved wood. The only way this place would be more primed for top dollar is if it was made of real platinum.

But despite all that, it looks like $11.25 million was simply too ambitious of an asking price. The circa 2011 house by developer Troon Pacific went on the market for that remarkable sum in May, but yesterday knocked off $1.75 million.

We’ve never done work inside, but they only built the place a few years ago. When the walls start cracking, we hope they call us.
