San Francisco, CA
Zynga founder and CEO Mark Pincus‘ four-level mansion in the prestigious Presidio Heights neighborhood of San Francisco has just hit the market for $8,900,000. Originally reported by The Business Insider, the gaming mogul and his wife are selling the stunningly well-decorated home for undisclosed reasons. After flipping through the listing photos, you can see that home’s interior decor is a pseudo-advertisement for One Kings Lane, the flash home decor sale site cofounded by Pincus’ wife, Alison. Bright colors, chic accents and delightful surprises define this home and make it one of the most covetable properties currently on the market in San Francisco.
The grand, livable and well-decorated modern home has 6-bedrooms and 6.5-bathrooms and was built on an extra-wide lot. It offers both a bold street presence and pleasing scale, but is intentionally pulled back from the street for privacy. The steps up to the house bring you to a beautiful courtyard and striking entrance. Extremely balanced and well-appointed, all the public rooms on the main level connect, ideal for flow and entertainment. The kitchen includes a unique but functional family room area. The kitchen morphs from great to truly magnificent as soon as you set your eyes on the large doors that open onto the tranquil grass garden. The second level features four bedrooms, including the master suite. There is a full floor penthouse level with a “grand master,” featuring a spa-like bathroom, terrace and office. The lower level has an au pair suite and media room/large play room.
For those who have been following Mark’s career, it’s no surprise he owns a home this big and beautiful. Zynga and Pincus are on a major roll, launching successful game after successful game, acquiring companies left and right, reporting record profits, and filing for an IPO. Zynga is rumored to be a publicly-traded company before the end of the year.
