    San Francisco's most expensive home on the market has been sold.

    The buyer is 30-year-old tech billionaire Kyle Vogt, who paid more than $21 million for the home earlier this month, making it the city's most expensive home sale of the year.

    Built in 1901, the Pacific Heights mansion at 2250 Vallejo St. has a Victorian look on the outside but is sleek and modern inside.

    According to SFGate, Vogt amassed his fortune by selling a pair of billion-dollar startups in the past two years. The first, Twitch, was sold to Amazon, and the second, Cruise, was purchased by General Motors. He remains CEO of Cruise.

    The 9,100-square-foot home originally built for James Madison was later converted into an 11-unit apartment building, according to SFGate. It was bought by Bryan and Tara Meehan of Blue Bottle Coffee for $6.95 million in 2012.
