Twitter co-founder Evan Williams is selling his mansion in the Noe Valley neighborhood of San Francisco for $2,995,000. First reported by Curbed SF, Williams and his wife Sara purchased the home at 313 Duncan Street in 2009 for $2.4 million. They remodeled the pad in the family-friendly neighborhood and they’re now saying #goodbye to the home.
In true Twitter fashion, here’s the property description in 140 characters:
3-level fully-restored Victorian home with 4 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, separate guest house, private garden, and rooftop deck.
The Williams had originally planned to demolish another house they owned in the Parnassus Heights neighborhood of San Francisco and build a brand new home, but neighbors aggressively opposed the project and its fate is currently unknown.
When he’s not battling his neighbors, Williams is working on a new start-up project, Medium. He left his role at Twitter in 2011.
Eric Turner of Maguire Real Estate holds the listing.

Gotta love social media. It’s not just for people, pets or fake personalities anymore, it’s also now for houses. On the market in Tucson, Arizona, a brand new listing in the 85718 area code also has it’s own Twitter handle: @IAMAHouse1. Tipped off by the fine folks at Curbed, we had to check out this tech-savvy property ourselves. A new addition to the Twitter world, the home tweets about the goings-on around the property, the weather, and even T.S. Eliot quotes.
This Twittering house is described as “a subtly magnificent home. Charm and grace permeate this adobe abode with a myriad of french doors and a feeling of bringing the outdoors in.” The kitchen is beautiful and up-to-date, yet warm. The living rooms and bedrooms feature beamed ceilings, the bathrooms are sleek marble, and the floors are a traditional tile that seamlessly blend the home’s exterior and interior. The property also features unique fireplaces, sprawling outdoor patios around a pool and hot tub. While listed as a 3 bedroom, the listing suggests that the home could be converted to a 4 bedroom.
The current housing market is challenging, which means agents and owners have to get creative about marketing their properties. We’ll just have to wait and see if more homes jump on the Twitter bandwagon in order to find their next owners.
