Mark Zuckerberg has sold his Dolores Heights home after 10 years
Neighbors must be thrilled the Chan-Zuckerbergs unloaded their Dolores Heights-area home for $31 million, but Google Maps has muddied the residence because Big Tech respects certain people’s privacy.
It’s been about 10 years since Silicon Valley boy-king hipster Mark Zuckerberg was occasionally spotted picnicking in Dolores Park, and in October 2012, the Facebook founder bought a house on 21st Street in a few blocks from the park. He and his new wife Priscilla Chan wasted no time in earning the utter contempt of their new neighbors, with Zuck’s enormous security details clogging the streets, the non-stop racketeering of his construction projects and his people paying for bogart parking spaces for Zuck and his well-heeled entourage.
Well, the nightmare may be over for people who are wealthy, but not as wealthy as Zuckerberg, on this charming stretch of 21st Street. Celebrity real estate blog The Real Deal reports that Zuckerberg and Chan sold this home for $31 million, according to city records dated July 1, 2022.
Checking the address on Google Street View, you will notice that the foyer is obscured by a blurring force field. This is something you can request, but it’s not automated, Google reviews the requests and considers granting them. It probably helps to be a wealthy founding type. However, there is an automated bot account on Twitter called @everylotsf which has a pre-blur image of the Zuckerberg house, posted in May 2021 and clearly from Google Maps, although it’s unclear when the image was taken.
We don’t normally publish people’s home addresses here on SFist, but in this case the buyer has set up an LLC shell that literally names the address. “The buyer of the Zuckerberg property is 3450 21st Street LLC, according to the deed, which is the address of the 1928 home,” reports The Real Deal. “The purchaser’s LLC is based in Delaware and the paperwork for the transfer of the home was sent to Michael Gordon, a Delaware attorney who specializes in trusts and estate planning, according to his firm’s website.”
The Real Deal adds that “the off-market sale is San Francisco’s biggest residential deal so far this year, narrowly beating the close of a pair of penthouses once owned by George Shultz for a total of $29 million. dollars earlier this week.The sale is the biggest condo deal in San Francisco history.
The Shultz properties were of course condos, not freestanding homes like this. Zuckerberg bought the house in 2012 for $10 million, so a $31 million sale is impressive, although he obviously put a few dollars into the place – including, apparently, a rooftop terrace from from which you can probably see Dolores Park and much of the city.

But the days of protests at Zuckerberg’s house are over, at least here in San Francisco, apparently. After all, the residence’s specific address became public when the Chronicle published photos of the house in 2016, and frankly, it’s rich enough for Mark Zuckerberg to worry about someone’s privacy being breached. .
Some may complain that we’ve gone and chased Mark Zuckerberg and the income he represents, but he has long divided his time between other homes in Palo Alto, Lake Tahoe and Hawaii. And knowing Zuckerberg, on paper he’s probably listed as living in Ireland in some sort of “double Irish” tax dodge.
