Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios President Ed Catmull recently sold a classic San Francisco home in an off-market deal. Property records reveal the home was sold for $12.3 million a couple of weeks ago.
The movie exec had purchased the place in 2015 for $9.95 million, according to property records.
So in addition to bringing animated stories to life, the 73-year-old is savvy in his real estate dealings.
So what did the new owner score for the hefty price tag? According to the listing, this beautiful beaux arts–style home in Pacific Heights is all about elegance. The grand mansion was designed by famed architect Arthur Brown Jr., who also created prominent San Francisco landmarks such as City Hall and Coit Tower. The 6,700-square-foot layout spans four levels and features five bedrooms, six bathrooms, and two half-baths.
Built in 1915, the home has been extensively renovated and “updated for modern family living,” the listing states. Some original architectural details remain, including 11-foot-high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling French doors, custom moldings and paneling, a wood-paneled library with built-ins, hardwood floors, and arched doorways.
Modern amenities include a chef’s kitchen and breakfast bar, gym, home theater, elevator, wet bar, wine cellar, and remodeled bathrooms. Outdoor space features a dining area, covered patio, and stone fountain. There’s also a separate, two-car garage.
The four-time Oscar winner has been recognized by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for his pioneering contributions in computer graphics. The Pixar co-founder is also the co-author of “Creativity, Inc.”
Lori Docherty represented the listing.
