A Caged Crib

Former San Francisco home of actor Nicolas Cage for sale for £11.4 million or 660% more than it sold for in 1996

 

Thrice married and an Academy Award winning actor Nicolas Cage is also known for lavish spending. Aside from once buying twenty-two cars in one hit – including a “squadron” of nine Rolls-Royce – he “wound up” owning fifteen personal residences in 2007 and now one of them is for sale for £11.4 million.

 

898 Francisco Street in San Francisco’s Russian Hill neighbourhood was purchased by a trust connected to Cage in 2006 for £6.9 million and sold by him in 2008 at a loss for £6.3 million. It was built in Gothic Tudor style in 1914, extends to 6,305 square foot and is spread over four floors.

  1. The door is beautiful and the carving too. The decor is boring but it seems that’s what people want. I’d add some colour myself.

  2. Wrecking ball urgently required!!!!!!!!!!! What a dump!!!!!!!!! Building plot is pointless as it has not got good views either!!!!!!!!! Layout is awful too —— weird!!!!!!!! Knock it down!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        1. I think he should come to London.
          He would be a ‘sell out’ on any TV arts programme with his progressive views on contemporary architecture

  3. Rod, from what I see, is a man of utterly no taste and he should really just stop making such idiotic remarks. Obviously he won’t.
