Purchased by the late venture capitalist Tom Perkins in the early 1970s and on the market ten years ago for $20.5 million, the Belvedere Island estate at 345 Golden Gate Avenue, which features nearly 9,000 square feet of space designed by Julia Morgan and George Kelham on a nearly one acre lot, has just sold for $14.46 million having most recently been listed for two million more.

In addition everything you’d expect, such as maid’s quarters, a wine cellar and two safes, the estate also features a library with a hidden wet bar, a Tudor oak headboard carved for a royal couple in the mid-1500s, and a chef’s apartment with full bath and kitchen above the garage.

And yes, there are big Golden Gate Bridge views from throughout the home and across its grounds.

  1. That is GORGEOUS! I’m curious why this sold for 14 million though and the house just down the street with a similar blueprint sold for 47 million a couple years ago?

  2. That a solid teak bathroom with a water heated towel rack. Super Baller!! I bet he took that move from Perini Navi!
