Mark Pincus, the CEO of Zynga, has had quite a year. Last December the company he found, and which he currently helms, went public with much applause and bell-ringing, but since that time, Zynga’s stock has gone down in value by as much as 70 percent. Still, as a prominent captain of the online games industry, Pincus can still afford to shell out $16 million to move into the exclusive Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco. He might have had to sell two San Francisco residences along the way, but Pincus now owns Jane Newhall’s former mansion.

The house is expansive — reportedly 11,500 square feet — and it has seven bedrooms. Natural light comes into the four-story home through skylights and large wood-paneled windows that overlook the San Francisco Bay and Golden Gate Bridge. Imagine sitting down for breakfast every day with views of the Bay. People compare the home’s interiors with those seen in the popular show “Downtown Abbey.” Woodwork of a quality not commonly seen is present throughout the house, and the master bedroom has a brick chimney.

The home had never before been in non-Newhall hands before. Jane Newhall lived in the home with Anita Guerra until her 97th year. She died in July 2011. Pincus will be living there with his wife and children.
