Built in 1892 by an attorney who wanted sunnier weather than fashionable Nob Hill afforded, this gorgeous Queen Anne mansion went uninhabited after its construction: Snob Hill socialites dubbed the house 'Nobby Clarke's Folly' and his wife refused to move in. It served briefly as a hospital; now it's apartments.
