The two-bedroom penthouse apartment boasts a wraparound terrace, floor-to-ceiling windows and a spectacular view of the San Francisco Bay.

But is it really worth $15 million?

Charlton Buckley thinks so. On Thursday, he purchased the apartment -- with all of its furniture -- from oil heir Billy Getty.

"It's one of a kind," said real estate agent Richard Weil of Hill & Co., which represented Buckley. "There's nothing like it in the world."

At least, nothing like it in San Francisco. The penthouse, located on the 24th floor, has unparalleled 360-degree view of the bay and is located in the tony neighborhood of Russian Hill.

Realtors say the sale makes it the most expensive home in a city with a skyrocketing housing market, eclipsing the estimated $6 million author Danielle Steel reportedly paid for her sprawling Pacific Heights mansion.
