Gov. Newsom puts Kentfield home on the market for $5.9 million
Since moving to the suburbs of Sacramento, newly elected Gov. Gavin Newsom has listed his family home in Kentfield for $5.9 million, according to Realtor.com.
Sitting on 1.3 acres of Kent Woodlands in Marin County, the five-bedroom home spans 4,000 square feet and features an open floor plan, bar seating in the kitchen and an outdoor pool and patio overlooking Mount Tamalpais.
The sprawling home was built in 1950, designed by San Francisco architect Worley K. Wong and recently remodeled by architect Julie Dowling, according to the real estate site.
Newsom and his documentarian wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, purchased the home in 2011 for $2.2 million.
Instead of residing in the 1877 30-room governor’s mansion in the state’s capital, Newsom and his family have opted to move into a $3.7 million, six-bedroom mansion in Fair Oaks, an unincorporated community in Sacramento County.
