The property

Single-family home is rather a misnomer for this estate, as it consists of so much more than just the home itself- a 13,519 square foot French-renaissance mansion with 12 bedrooms, seven full baths, two half baths, library, solarium, wine cellar and entire floor for staff. Special features include 12-foot ceilings, multiple carved fireplaces and balconies, plus huge windows and glassed-in porches for taking in the panoramic Long Island Sound view. The property straddles 50 acres spread over two islands, and outdoor features include a 75 foot pool with spa and pool house, grass tennis court, stone carriage house and guest cottage, plus abundant rolling lawns and gardens.

The history

Since being built in 1896, Copper Beech Farm has only known two owners. Harriet Lauder Greenway (whose father, George Lauder, joined Andrew Carnegie to create U.S. Steel) purchased the property in 1904 and lived there for 75 years. Current owner John Rudey, who made his money in timber, acquired the home in an off market deal. According to Forbes, “The estate hasn’t been publicly listed for sale in more than a century.”

Big spenders are back

The high-high end luxury home market has enjoyed a comeback of late all over the country, with record sales in New York, San Francisco, Woodside, Montana, and Beverly Hills. But often even these uber-listings targeting the uber-rich must come down in price before selling. For example, the Spelling Mansion, once “haven” to Candy Spelling, wife of the deceased TV mogul, Aaron Spelling, tried to sell her Beverly Hills manse for $150 million. She ended up taking $85 million instead from Petra Ecclestone, the 22-year-old British heiress of Formula One Manangement.

Twitter Founder Evan Williams House for Sale in San Francisco – Celebrity House Pictures

home

When Evan Williams founded Twitter he had short, simple, and sleek communication in mind. In his Victorian era home in San Francisco, complete with renovations, he reflected that style. Evan and his wife bought their newly listed real estate back in 2009 for a cool $2.4 million, after renovations they are now asking $2.995 million, a slight increase but still within reason for the area.

Evan’s San Francisco home includes a guest house and has 3,200 square feet of living space. There are four full bedrooms in the main home accompanied by 4 full bathrooms and one half bath. The home is everything you would expect from Silicon Valley and from a tech master like Evan. The house is well lit with windows around every possible corner. The interior’s main colors are white, gray, and a grayish blue. There is dark mahogany hardwood throughout the home and hand laid tile in the bathrooms and guest house. One of the best features of this renovated home are the patios. The house spans three floors and on each floor a bedroom has a balcony and private patio attached. Each patio overlooks the San Francisco skyline and is the perfect place for solitude and privacy.

In addition to highly modern style and an open floor plan Evan’s home is also environmental friendly giving buyers another reason to check it out. Solar panels have been installed on the roof to keep the cost of electricity down while saving the environment. The home also includes a private garden for relaxation and spa showers for the perfect shower to wake you up. This ultra modern home also includes an ultra modern kitchen that a five star chef would feel at home in.

Even though Evan has listed his home for sale it is unlikely that he will be moving anywhere away from Silicon Valley as he is involved with another social media platform called Medium, which is set to make waves once it is fully launched.

The home sits on more than an acre on North Bay Road, where Jennifer Lopez, Alex Rodriguez, Calvin Klein and Ricky Martin have lived.

Mr. Damon created the home from two separate parcels he bought in 2005, one for $10.3 million and another for $4.2 million, according to public records. Records also show that last year he paid $15 million for a home in the Pacific Palisades area of Los Angeles, on the same street as his longtime collaborator, Ben Affleck.
