The Delancey Street Foundation is where former San Francisco Mayor-turned-Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom did his rehab stint a few years back, and on Monday the foundation's movers packed the Newsom clan's belongings into trucks and drove them off to storage, SF Gate reports. That's right: Newsom and his expecting wife Jennifer Siebel Newsom are moving the family out of San Francisco's Ashbury Heights neighborhood (squabble amongst yourselves if you think it's Corona Heights or Cole Valley) and into Marin, at least temporarily.
The Newsom family purchased their 4-bed, 3.5-bath, 2,300-square-foot home at 1581 Masonic Ave in June of 2009 for $2,980,000. Now that they're expecting a second child, the four bedroom home they currently reside in just won't do. The family plans to spend the summer living in Jennifer's parents' five-bedroom, five-bath home in the Marin County town of Ross, supposedly while they search for permanent housing for their growing family.
Both Newsom and Siebel were raised in Marin, so it doesn't seem like too much of a stretch to think they might permanently reside there. Eve Batey, Publisher of the SF Appeal, reached out to Beth Spotswood for comment. Spotswood, a Newsom expert, told the Appeal that she didn't understand the hype. "Of course they're moving to Marin," Spotswood said in an email to Batey. "I'm sure they'll come to their senses and buy a house in Mill Valley."
