We have a feeling Jonathan Ive, Apple's chief of design, may be doing quite well at work. He reportedly just paid $17 million for a house on San Francisco's Gold Coast.
Ive, Apple's senior vice president of industrial design, did negotiate a deal, though. The 7,274-square foot, six-bedroom, 8.5-bath house was listed for $25 million, so Ive did manage a hefty 32 percent discount off of the price, according to the Wall Street Journal. The 1927 brick house is built with floors, with an oak-paneled library, courtyard garden and cathedral ceilings. There's also, of course, quarters for the staff.
Ive, 45, had been living in San Francisco with his wife and children and we would guess probably in a lot less fancy digs (oh, wait, here is an alleged picture and it is a lot less fancy and a lot more concrete.) Ive couldn't be reached for comment and Apple declined to comment on the report.
