Newsom Sells His Bachelor Pad

Apparently Mayor Gavin Newsom is immune to the anemic housing market.

Just a few weeks after the governor wannabe put his Russian Hill penthouse on the market, the property is in escrow, according to our friends at SF Gate.

The house, which was going for $2.995 million, was taken off the market, according to Redfin. The one bedroom, 1.5 bath condo was only listed on the site for about a month. No details of how much it sold for were actually available yet.

"We don't know the exact sales price yet (fill us in if you do) but we suspect the apartment probably didn't come cheap, given the asking price was $2.995 million," Betsy Schiffman wrote on SF Gate.

Newsom originally paid $2.35 million for the home in 2005 when he bought it from Peter Getty.
