Julia Roberts Spends $8.3 Million On A Victorian-Styled Home In San Francisco

Julia Roberts just processed a transaction worth $8.3 million by purchasing a revival-styled home in San Fransisco in January 2020. The Oscar-winning star bought the Presidio Heights property, and we want to check out if the extravagant purchase is worth the price that Roberts paid!

The front, the base, and the detail

The five-floor 6,200-square-foot home has five bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. Once you go inside, you’ll see that the front entrance is entirely clean-lined, with gleaming hardwood floorboards and bright white walls.

Its coffered ceilings, customized moldings, paneled walls, and bay shutters also bring out the dwelling’s historic appeal. As for the living room, it has a fireplace that’s bordered by built-in counters, and a second fireplace is located at the other end of the conventional dining space.

More of its drool-worthy features

Now, let’s explore the rest of this noble house, starting with the kitchen. It highlights a refreshing pop of olive green hues, courtesy of customized cabinetry as well as a long breakfast bar that’s made banquette-style.

Two distinct cozy lounge spots are just some of the other fantastic features of the home. They even have marble fireplaces and panoramic sights of the mountainous region. Plus, there’s also a charming all-white home office that has walls made of built-in cupboards and cabinetry.

Located on the top level is the master suite, which has a fantastic skylight and a bay window ideal for roosting to see sunsets. Various balconies give additional outdoor space together with the back-tiered terrace, which has a vast outdoor dining space.

How the historic dwelling came to be

Constructed in 1907, the dwelling that Roberts purchased is a classic home designed by the architect Sylvain Schnaittacher and renovated by John Wheatman. The design highlights panoramic views of the San Francisco Bay and Golden Gate Bridge that once can see from the kitchen as well as the master bedroom suite.
Initially, the estate was on the market for the price of $10.25 million in 2019. However, its price was brought down to $9.65 million before Roberts finally purchased it for $8.3 million. Before this, the last time the residence changed hands was in 1997 when it sold for $1.88 million.

The neighborhood and Roberts’ other properties

Through the years, Roberts has been found roaming around in the foggy city. So it’s not surprising that she fancied the tranquil, isolated, family-friendly—and costly—neighborhood, which is nearby great schools, and where century-old Tudors and Victorians fill the streets. Fun Fact: One of the most extravagant San Francisco listings is just up the alley from the house that Roberts purchased. It is a mini $21.8 million Petit Trianon-style estate.
The Pretty Woman actress also owns an airy Malibu home, which she started renting out for $10,000 a month in 2018. She also has two Point Dume properties.
