Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Scoops Up $22 Million House Next Door

Location:
San Francisco, Calif.
Price:
$21.9 million
Size:
3,588 square feet, 5 beds, 3 baths

When he’s not busy helming Twitter and Square, the two multibillion dollar companies he co-created, tech tycoon Jack Dorsey finds residential relaxation in the breezy Sea Cliff neighborhood of San Francisco. His flat-roofed midcentury modern, acquired in 2012 for $10 million, is treacherously cantilevered over a craggy, near-sheer bluff and graced with spectacular views of the bay. On a rare fog-free day, of course.

Dorsey apparently loves his home, vertigo-inducing vistas be damned. And he’s now seen fit to expand the dizzying estate, stealthily swiping out a record $21.9 million for his next door neighbor’s house. The off-market transaction actually closed late last year — with zero fanfare — and ranks as the most ever paid for a Sea Cliff property, easily besting an $18 million from 2009.

Unfortunately, since the new Dorsey house was never publicly listed for sale, there are no proper photographs and few concrete details available. But records do show the boxy pad was built in 1962 and stands two stories tall with five beds and three baths in nearly 3,600 sq. feet of living space. There’s a detached two-car garage and .62-acres of steep blufftop property. Like his main residence next door, the home is invisible from the street, sequestered behind thick foliage and perilously perched near the cliff’s edge. The lucky sellers, a Thailand-based family, picked up the estate way back in 1997 for a mere $2.85 million. Ka-ching!

The Dorsey compound now contains upwards of 7,300 square feet of midcentury living space with seven bedrooms on 1.2 acres of cliffside. Ancient trees surrounding the property provide an enviable dose of nature’s own privacy. The neighborhood is also known for its abundant wildlife — foxes, coyotes, even the occasional mountain lion patrol the premises. Nosy birds twit and tweet from their leafy vantage points.

In addition to his expanded $32 million Seacliff estate, Dorsey also maintains a house in Los Angeles. The $4.2 million contemporary confection, tucked high up in the Hollywood Hills, won a 2017 AIA architectural award and is occupied by his long-distance girlfriend, international model Raven Lyn Corneil.
