Just 10 years ago, Hollywood counted Nicolas Cage amongst its highest paid actors. In fact, in 2009, he earned an impressive $40 million! During that time, he was quite the real estate investor, owning some of the world’s most eclectic luxury homes. This San Francisco home is a notable piece of that collection. Built in 1914 for Armenian sculptor Haig Patigian, this historic celebrity real estate is now for sale at $10.95 million. (Image credit: Open Homes Photography)
A Penchant for Real Estate
In the 1990’s, Nicolas Cage starred in a long string of blockbuster hits like Moonstruck and Peggy Sue Got Married. Moreover, Leaving Las Vegas earned the star an Oscar in 1996. By the early 2000’s, he invested millions of his movie star dollars into his real estate holdings. His collection included a waterfront home in Newport Beach, a country estate in Newport, Rhode Island, a Las Vegas mansion, a 1928 castle in Los Angeles and the LaLaurie mansion in New Orleans. According to Cage, LaLaurie is “the most haunted house in America.” Two European castles and an island in the Bahamas also make up his real estate portfolio. But a jewel of the actor’s collection is this iconic San Francisco historic home which sits high on Francisco Street.
An Iconic San Francisco Home
The large Tudor Revival home was built at a time when the neighborhood was rebounding after many of the ritzy homes were destroyed by the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake. Sitting high on Russian Hill, the home certainly has a spectacular view of San Francisco Bay. Just two blocks from the zigzagged Lombard Street, nearby parks and some of the city’s most stunning mansions, this San Francisco home is in the perfect location for leisurely scenic strolls.
