He’s also a co-founder of the video streaming start up Twitch, which Amazon purchased for $970.000.000 in 2014. His new home is as astonishing as his business ventures – it holds a title of the most expensive house in San Francisco after being sold for $21.800.000.
The recently restored residence was design all the way back in 1901 by the noted architect James Dunn. Beautiful Beaux-Arts façade uncovers its rich history, but on the inside this property has been transformed into a 21st century masterpiece with 9.095 square feet of space. The interior was designed by renowned Los Angeles-based architect Paul McClean – it has seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms spread out over three floors. The most impressive part of living in this mesmerizing residence is the fact it provides unobstructed 180 degree views that encompass the Golden Gate Bridge, Angel Island, and San Francisco Bay, making it one of the best places to fully experience this city and all the beauty it has to offer.
