Apple’s Design Expert Jonathan Ive Purchases A $17 Million Mansion In San Francisco
If you are an Apple fan and have not heard of Jonathan Ive, it would be quite alarming. Ive is Apple’s senior vice president of industrial design and was the mastermind behind the design of the iPod, iPhone and many other products. Ive was even knighted earlier this year, and is currently leads Apple’s most secretive teams. As such it should not come as a surprise he lives a very private life.
Regardless of Ive’s private lifestyle WSJ is reporting he has purchased a $17 million house on San Francisco’s “Gold Cost.” This
house mansion resides on one of the city’s most exclusive blocks, and was originally listed for $25 million.
Designed by the architectural firm Willis Polk & Co, the five-level brick home was completed in 1927 and has six bedrooms and 8½ bathrooms. The 7,274-square-foot house also features views of the San Francisco Bay, an oak-paneled library, a courtyard garden and six wood-burning fireplaces. An upstairs bedroom has cathedral ceilings with exposed beams, while on the lower level there is a two-bedroom, one bathroom staff apartment.
You can take a look at some of the pictures of the house from its listing below.
It is nice to see that all the hard work Ive has contributed to Apple has paid off, and now he has a house truly incredible to show for it.
