Last month, Vice President Kamala Harris received a brand new address at One Observatory Circle (although she is temporarily staying at Blair House while her new home is under renovation) in Washington DC. As a result, the native Californian had to part with her long-standing apartment in San Francisco.

Harris’ apartment was listed on February 7th with Anne Herrera of Sotheby’s International Realty, according to the Zillow List. On the 17th it already had an interested buyer. Currently, the one-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment is under contract for $ 799,000.

But what is so remarkable about Harris’ apartment? Good to start with, his style is fabulous. The apartment is on the top floor of a boutique building in the SoMa district and exudes a relaxed luxury style. Some features include: living and dining areas with high ceilings, a kitchen, a home office kitchen, a terrace, a fireplace and much more. It’s a duplex too! The bedroom is on the second level, along with a bathroom and a walk-in closet. You can see photos of the apartment here.

According to the property records quoted on Zillow, Harris bought this apartment in 2004 for $ 489,000. That year was significant because it was the same year that she became the first District Attorney in San Francisco (and the first African American woman and South Asian American to ever hold the position in the state of California). Along with her big win in 2020, this is quite a legendary and historic place in my book. I mean, think about how many speeches she wrote in this home office!

While we wait for the sale to be confirmed, check out Harris’ makeshift home at the President’s Guesthouse as the Vice President’s residence at One Observatory Circle is under renovation.
