San Francisco’s Most Expensive Home Goes for $21.8 Million

Here’s the record highest-paid price for a home in SF so far this year. $21.8 million paid by tech super-rich mogul Kyle Vogt just a few days ago for a gorgeous 9,095- square-foot mansion at 2250 Vallejo Street. Vogt is 30 years old and the mansion is 115 years old, opening its front door in 1901 for James Madison (a fish packing tycoon)—5 years before and surviving the 1906 great earthquake.

Located on one of the city’s highest streets the mansion is three stories with seven bedrooms built in what’s called contemporary style.

The mansion first went on the market a year ago with an asking price of $28 million. The price was dropped by $3 million this past spring and Vogt appears to have gotten an even better deal. Business Insider, which broke the story, states this sale was the priciest in the city at the time of the sale.

Vogt, co-founder of Twitch (streaming platform) and Cruise Automation (autonomous driving), made his money by selling Twitch to Amazon for $914 million and Cruise to GM for $1 billion.
