“I believe Bitcoin is going to change the world, and I’m ready to demonstrate my confidence by accepting the digital currency as payment for my one-of-a-kind home,” said Sweeney, a well-known Bay Area sailor and kiteboarder who has relocated from his longtime Tiburon base to his own private island in the Sacramento Delta.
The listing is being handled by Marianne Bordogna of Keller Williams Realty in Danville, CA.
“John’s home commands sweeping and unobstructed west-facing views of Richardson Bay, the Golden Gate Bridge, Mount Tam and Sausalito,” Bordogna said. “Built in 2005, the home features an open floor plan with custom radiant heat concrete floors, designer kitchen with bamboo cabinets, marble countertops, high-end appliances and breakfast bar; three bedrooms, each with private marble/tile bathrooms with heated floors; a powder room, patios, decks, BBQ/lawn areas and a five-car garage with glass doors to showcase the owner’s automobiles. The home, which sits on 30 concrete piers to bedrock 60 feet below, is Feng Shui correct, and utilizes bamboo and other 'green' materials throughout.”
“There have been a number of multi-million-dollar purchases using Bitcoin, but not many on the residential real estate side,” Sweeney said. “As more real estate transactions are consummated using Bitcoin, this revolutionary currency will continue to gain credibility, with websites such as www.xapo.com and www.coinbase.com leading the way in secure Bitcoin transactions. I want to be on the leading edge of that.”
“I’ve enjoyed the home for many years, and it’s time for someone else to take advantage of the great weather, fantastic views and overall ambiance it provides,” said Sweeney. “No expense – in dollars – was spared in building the house, and now it’s time for me to turn my investment into additional Bitcoins.”
An open house is scheduled Sunday, May 18, at 747 Tiburon Blvd., Tiburon, CA. For details, please contact [email protected] or (925)202-5508. The MLS number for Sweeney’s property is MLS# 21410671.
