SAN FRANCISCO—San Francisco’s most expensive home has been sold to tech billionaire Kyle Vogt, 30. The 5-level home on Vallejo Street was originally listed for $28 million in November 2015. Vogt purchased the home for $21.8 million.
The 9,025 square foot home was originally built in 1901 for James Madison, a salmon packing magnate for the Alaskan Salmon Company. There is still a script “M” carved into the ironwork on the front of the house for Madison.
The original architect of the “Beaux Arts” inspired home was James F. Dunn (1873-1920), according to SF Properties. Mayor Angelo Joseph Rossi is reported to have also been a resident at one time where the home was transformed into an apartment building to house soldiers during WWII.
In 2013-2015, the property had major renovations conducted under the management of Paul McClean of McClean Designs based in Los Angeles.
Recent owners of the property included Blue Bottle Coffee’s Bryan and Tara Meehan who paid $6.95 million in 2012. The home has 7 bedrooms, 5 floors, 3 and a half bathrooms, four fireplaces, an infinity pool, spa and lounge. The home also includes a media room, wet bar, office, elevator, and landscaped garden with lower terrace.
