Property Porn: Governor Jerry Brown's Oakland Home Sells Below Asking at $2.4 Million

By

After months on the market awaiting for the perfect owner, the Oakland residence of Governor Jerry Brown and his wife, Ann Gust Brown, has finally sold for just shy of $2.4 million—more than $200,000 less than the asking price.

The master bedroom

Perched on the downslope of scenic Skyline Boulevard, the four-story house has belonged to the Browns since 2006. It was designed by Sallie Lang of Bliss Design Building, with a zen Asian aesthetic comprised of honey wood floors, bamboo, and sliding glass doors. A cantilevered staircase connects the top two floors, which house the couple's master bedroom, two walk-in closets, a sitting room, and ample bathroom.

The kitchen

There is even a spa level—a modern interpretation of a traditional Japanese onsen—and a wet bar and great room that opens onto a huge deck with views of the Bay.

The deck opens onto views of the Oakland hills and beyond.

Governor Brown and his family currently live in a 15-bedroom manse in Sacramento, but the rumor mill says they are planning to build a new residence in Colusa County, where they will settle at the end of Brown's term in 2019.

Asking price: $ 2,595,000
