The mansion in the woodsy suburb of Kentfield over the Golden Gate Bridge was originally listed in 2019 but didn’t sell. At the time Newsom had just left the governor’s mansion in Sacramento for a more “kid-friendly” home in Fair Oaks, 14 miles from the capitol.
Newsom, who grew up in San Francisco, and wife Jennifer Siebel Newsom moved to the mansion at 11 Rock Road in Kentfield in 2011 shortly after the former mayor of San Francisco became California’s lieutenant governor.
Although the couple had been close to renting in the Presidio, Newsom told SFGATE at the time, “We drove up the driveway and said, ‘Wow, this is it.’”
The 1,800-square-foot mid-century manor with unobstructed views of Mt. Tam and the bay, complete with pool, spa and olive trees, was bought by the Newsoms for $2.145 million in 2011. In May of this year Newsom off-loaded it for $5.895 million, records show.
The New York Post reports that the Newsoms sank $330,000 into remodeling the house before first attempting to sell in 2019.
