Nicolas Cage’s One-Time San Francisco Mansion Is For Sale
If you have $10 million to spare, this Tudor Revival beauty can be your national treasure.
As an actor, Nicolas Cage has a habit of racking up a roster of iconic roles. And as an apparent real estate aficionado, he’s also amassed a pretty impressive collection of properties over the years. From a deserted private island in the Bahamas to a haunted house in New Orleans, Cage’s homes have, for the most part, shared common themes of being out of the ordinary, opulent, or just downright impressive.
His one-time mansion in the heart of San Francisco is, without a doubt, the latter. Built in 1914 for an Armenian sculptor, the four-story Tudor Revival home sits at the top of a slope in the city’s Russian Hill neighborhood, with sweeping views of San Francisco Bay, Sausalito, and Alcatraz Island, where the actor’s ’96 flick The Rock took place.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Cage called the historic hideaway his own for a stint in the early 2000s, around the time he was filming for roles in films like World Trade Center and National Treasure. He later sold the home in 2008 at a slight loss, says Curbed, for $8.5 million.

Now, Cage fans (and historic architecture junkies) have the opportunity to snatch up the urban mansion for $10.95 million. Listed with Mark Allan Levinson of Compass Realty, the grand six-bedroom home is rife with San Francisco’s trademark Gothic architecture. From the exterior façade’s intricate stone archway to its quatrefoil details, the stately manse commands attention right from the street.
And the insides are just as alluring. Geometric windows with stained glass allow light to gently filter in, while original period details like a carved fireplace and wood trim recall its Gothic influences. In addition to the home’s six bedrooms and six baths, the 6,300-square-foot manse includes a library with leaded glass windows, a wine cellar, gym, and lush backyard with mature landscaping. Not bad for city living, right?
