Now that Vice President Kamala Harris has permanently moved to Washington, DC, she has had to say goodbye to her former home.

The two-story San Francisco condominium was listed online with Anne Herrera of Sotheby’s International Realty on February 8, according to a post on Zillow.

Just 10 days later, on February 18, the one-bedroom, one-and-a-half bathroom apartment was placed under contract for $799,000 with an unknown buyer.

The selling price for the 1,069-square-foot loft is 63 percent higher than the $489,000 price Harris paid for the property back in 2004, the year she became San Francisco’s District Attorney, the first black woman and South Asian woman to ever hold the position.

The condo is located on the top floor of a boutique building in the South of Market neighborhood of San Francisco, which is filled with plenty of upscale restaurants and nightclubs.

The main level has a living room and a dining room with high ceilings, a chef’s kitchen with a gas stove, a home office alcove, a half bath, a patio and a fireplace.  

On the second floor can be found a loft-style bedroom, a full bath and a walk-in-closet.

The home also boasts an in-unit washer and dryer, garage parking, a new roof and intercom system installed within the past two years.

Among the additions Harris has made since she moved in are floor to ceiling drapes, wall paper on the first floor and an air conditioner.

Records on Zillow indicate that the apartment building was built in 1998, and Harris is only the second person to have lived in the unit, buying it from the original owner in 2004.

The Clara Street apartment is estimated to cost about $3,700 per month including principal, mortgage insurance, property taxes, home insurance and other fees.  

Harris’s temporary home is Blair House, across the street from the White House and the president’s official guesthouse, while the Vice Presidential Residence at One Observatory Circle undergoes renovations.

Blair House, which is a brick-and-stucco home, boasts 119 rooms including 14 bedrooms, 35 bathrooms, three formal dining rooms, a library, a gym and even a beauty salon. 

But Harris also owns other homes, including a two-bedroom condo in Washington, DC, and a 3,500-square-foot house in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Harris paid $1,775,000 for the 1,700-square-foot condo in DC in 2017 and that it offers a 24-hour concierge, a heated rooftop pool and even  a dog washing station.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles home, which has four bedrooms and five bathrooms, was purchased by her husband, attorney Doug Emhoff, for $2.7 million in 2012, two years before the duo married.
