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.
A favorite way to think of our park was summed up in San Francisco magazine in 2004. Children’s Fairyland, they said, is “as miniature and uncynical as a toddler’s beating heart.” We agree. Children’s Fairyland is, in many ways, a timeless reminder of the joys of standing three-feet tall.

Exclusive First Video: The Studio Apartment With 6 Hidden Rooms

In the Soho neighborhood of New York City, where living space is both expensive and limited, Graham Hill and his team at LifeEdited have turned a 420 square foot studio apartment into the Petri dish of future urban living.
The single room studio apartment has been gutted and remodeled with convertible walls and furniture that transform into six different living spaces. “I wanted it all,” says Mr. Hill in his TED talk from a year ago, “home office, sit down dinner for 10, room for guests, and all my kite surfing gear.”
We went to the apartment to get the first look at the newly finished space, which was built using sustainably sourced lumber and built-in solar powered phone chargers.
