California Gov. Gavin Newsom and wife Jennifer Siebel Newsom, maker of documentary films, have listed their home in Kentfield, Calif., for sale at $5.995 million.
Walls of glass bring views of San Francisco Bay, Mt. Tamalpais and the backyard swimming pool into the two-story wood-clad house, which has about 4,000 square feet of living space. Updated since it was designed in 1950 by Bay Area architect Worley K. Wong, the cool contemporary features a kitchen with an island open to a family room; five bedrooms; two offices; and five bathrooms.
Lawn, matures trees, a gazebo and a fire pit complete the 1.38 acres of grounds.
The Newsoms have been temporarily living in the governor’s mansion in Sacramento. That 30-room, three-story Italianate Victorian was built in 1877.
In December, they bought a 12,000-square-foot, six-bedroom house in the Fair Oaks neighborhood for $3.7 million through a limited liability company, reported the Sacramento Bee.
Nathan Click, the governor’s spokesman, said in a statement that their new residence was currently being renovated and was “more kid-friendly.”
Public records show the Newsoms purchased the Kentfield property in 2011 for $2.225 million.
