Much like his film career, Nicolas Cage’s taste in real estate is about as diverse as they come: mansions in Las Vegas and Southern California, a castle in Germany and islands in the Caribbean. There was even a Gothic Tudor mansion in San Francisco that is now for sale for $12 million.

The four-story home in the Russian Hill neighborhood was acquired by Cage in 2006 through a trust that held real estate for the actor.

He would sell two years later for $8.5 million, property records show.

The mansion, built in 1914, blends classic features with tasteful designer updates. Leaded and stained-glass windows, Gothic arches and decorative medallions are among the architectural details.

An ornate pediment creates visual interest above the gated front landing.

The 6,305-square-foot interior includes scaled formal rooms, a modern chef’s kitchen, a library/den and a wine cellar.

The master suite has two dressing rooms and an updated bathroom for a total of six bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms.

Mature trees, gardens and sitting areas fill the grounds. Views take in sweeping views of the surrounding landmarks and San Francisco Bay.
