As we first reported in 2009, while the sales price of the then Mayor’s new abode at 1581 Masonic was reported on the MLS as “confidential,” it was a plugged-in tipster that tipped us off to the $2,738,000 contract price of the District 5 home which had been listed for $2,980,000 (the number which would have been used for MLS based stats).
As a prescient plugged-in reader wrote at the time:
I bet if he loses the governor’s primary or the actual race, within six months he will be back in his natural habitat, well north of California Street, or perhaps in Marin. This neighborhood is purely a political decision.
With the Newsoms now moving to Marin, their 3,051 square foot home on Masonic has hit the market listed for $2,750,000.
