“Want to improve your Monday by seeing how design guru Jony Ive lives?” Luke Dormehl reports for Cult of Mac. “Over the weekend, Business Insider ran a gallery, showcasing Apple’s acclaimed design guru’s home on San Francisco’s ‘Gold Coast,’ also known as ‘Billionaire’s Row.'”

“While Apple rarely discounts products, the same didn’t apply here, since Ive picked up the mansion for a (relative) snip in 2012: paying $17 million against an original asking price of $25 million,” Dormehl reports. “The five-floor home was completed in 1927, and features a modest four bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms. It was designed by well-known local architect Willis Polk.”

Dormehl reports, “Of course, there’s no way of knowing how the property has been modified since Ive and his wife moved in.”
