Behind the scenes look at the Pritikin Mansion

About the Pritikin Mansion:

In 1981 Pritikin built a mansion for himself in the quiet residential neighborhood of Glen Park, San Francisco.

The building, also known as "Chenery House," is the largest private property in the city, featuring a swimming pool inside a second story living room. The house was used for a period as a rental event center.

Pritikin was notorious for throwing eccentric parties at the house, including political fundraisers, an annual Labor Day party for 850 people, and a yearly passover seder.
