After Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom and fam sold their Ashbury Heights home and moved in with his actress wife's in-laws in Ross, speculation has swirled around the high-profile couple about where they would decide to settle permanently. Well, the wait is over, folks. Newsom, his wife Jennifer Siebel and their two kiddos are decamping to a swanky home in Kentfield, which the duo recently purchased for $2.145 million.
After Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom and fam sold their Ashbury Heights home and moved in with his actress wife's in-laws in Ross, speculation has swirled around the high profile couple about where they would decide to permanently settle. Well, the wait is over folks. Newsom, his wife Jennifer Siebel and their two kiddos are decamping to a swanky home in Kentfield, which the duo recently purchased for $2.145 million.
Newsom and family reportedly were close to renting in the Presidio, but according to
Leah Garchik of the San Francisco Chronicle, Newsom and Siebel drove up the driveway of their new swanky digs and proclaimed, "Wow this is it."
The former San Francisco mayor's new home was designed by the late Bay Area architect Worley Wong in 1950. Wong designed other structures in the Bay Area including student housing at Stanford, the Bodega Marine Biology Facility, and the provost's house at Merrill College at UC Santa Cruz.
The Newsom's Marin County crib measures 1,800 square feet and is situated on 1.3 acres. The open floor plan is designed so that the living room, dining room and kitchen area all flow seamlessly into one another.
The open living and dining rooms are surrounded by sleek floor-to-ceiling windows, which serve to frame the impressive views that surround this mid-century modern home.
Newsom's two kids are sure to love the extra outdoor space this home features. The sun-drenched backyard comes equipped with a pool and spa, as well as a trellised patio with surrounding olive trees.
A sweeping view of the chic backyard and swimming pool. Newsom and his fam decamped to his wife's in-laws house in Ross back in June. While living with the in-laws seems, um, great, nothing says home sweet home more than a multi-million dollar new gem of a house.
Goodbye, city life. The couple is officially bidding goodbye to the conveniences of urban life. Their new suburban pad is surrounded by dense forest and canyons, and whose somewhat isolated location is a great turnaround from their former Ashbury Heights house in the city.
