California Governor Gavin Newsom, facing a recall election, is selling his personal home outside San Francisco for almost $6 million.

Newsom sold his 4,000 square-foot home in May, according to the New York Post.

The house is located at 11 Rock Road in Kentfield, about 40 miles north of San Francisco. It initially hit the market in January 2019 after Newsom took office and moved to Sacramento. It was taken off the market until it was purchased in May for more than the asking price of $5.7 million.

The governor and his wife bought the home in 2011 for $2.2 million, the Post reported. With the help of architect Julie Dowling, Newsom put at least $330,000 into remodeling the house by adding glass walls and more open living spaces.

The house, which was originally built by local architect Worley K. Wong in 1950, sits on a 1.38-acre property that features views of San Francisco Bay and Mount Tamalpais.

Governor Newsom is currently facing a recall election that was inspired in part by opponents to his COVID-19 policies. The election will be held on Sept. 14.
