Gavin Newsom's House Hits the Market

Where's Gavin now?
  • Where's Gavin now?

The big question for Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom has been: Where does the ex-mayor live? Until today, we couldn't say for sure what his living situation was. While some news reports say the Newsoms have packed up their home and moved to Ross for the summer, his staff was insisting he's still a resident of San Francisco.

To be clear, Newsom does live in Ross and he technically is still a resident of our fair city -- but not for long, it seems. What we can tell you is that his Ashbury Heights home is on the market -- officially, according to, a real estate blog.

According to the blog, Newsom's 3,051-square-foot home on Masonic Avenue is listed for $2,750,000.

The blog notes that some of its astute readers had called this one long ago:

"I bet if he loses the governor's primary or the actual race, within six months he will be back in his natural habitat, well north of California Street, or perhaps in Marin. This neighborhood is purely a political decision."

We called Team Newsom to find out whether he still plans on returning to San Francisco after his summer in Ross. No word back yet.

But we can only guess how this will go over with the local Democratic Party.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
