Situated in a most sought-after areas of San Francisco, Noe Valley, Evan Williams’s luxury home has a price tag of $3 million. Evan Williams, who co-founded the popular social networking and micro-blogging, Twitter, paid for the property at 313 Duncan Noe Valley $2.4 million in 2009 and renovated it altogether. He quit Twitter two years ago and, together with Biz Stone and Jason Goldman, launched Medium, a new publishing platform.
The Williamses are planning to settle in their Parnassus Heights residence, in one of the most coveted neighborhoods of San Francisco, therefore have decided to unload the Noe Valley digs. Originally they had wanted to tear it down and replace it with another house which was to have been designed by the San Francisco-based architecture firm Lundberg Design, but things did not go according to plan on account of the neighbors’ opposition expressed to the Planning Department.
The fully restored 5-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom was designed by Owen Kennerly, a famous San Francisco based architect who, according to his firm’s politics, integrated structure, space, light and material in order to make the house as comfortable, attractive and user-friendly looking as possible. The home includes a private guest house in the lavish backyard and a rooftop deck which provides breathtaking sweeping views. The residence is perfectly integrated into the environment, making use of local traditions developed appropriately by construction specialists.
