The former California home of disgraced Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes is available for rent but it will cost $5,395 per month to live in the prime San Francisco spot.

A listing on RentSFnow.com claims it’s all worth it with a ‘beauty, grace and views that kill’ line to describe the apartment where the woman who fell from grace after a major blood testing scandal that preceded her biochemist Ian Gibbons taking his own life in 2013.

While apartment 303 on 1340 Lombard Street is a humble two-bedroom, two-bathroom abode compared to the mansion she lived in during her heyday, it includes jaw-dropping views of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Images of the Russian Hill apartment show the iconic landmark through one of the many windows lining the walls and letting light flow in.

The raised Lombard Place Apartments property is described as ‘bright, and airy’ with ‘top-of-the-world views and expansive interiors’.

Upon entering the apartment, the kitchen is the first thing visitors see. Double doors separate other rooms.

‘Perks include beautiful hardwood floors, top-notch finishes in the kitchen and bath, and built-in storage throughout,’ the listing states.

The ‘cable-ready’ also comes equipped with a dishwasher, efficient appliances, and a washer-dryer.

Dogs and cats under 40 pounds are welcome at the pad and there’s certainly enough room for pets to roam around in the city which is known for its tiny living spaces at sky-high prices.

But the next renter will have to pay up an extra $40 per month to have a furry friend stay.

Holmes enjoyed the perk as she resided with her Siberian husky named Balto. 

No. 303’s next renter won’t even need to put down a security deposit as long as they pass credit checks. 

As part of a $95 move-in special the person or people moving in will only have to pay the non-refundable fee plus the first month’s rent.

However the resident is responsible for any damage costs when they move out.

But those who see themselves living in the abode had better act quickly – the lease must be signed by May 31.

There’s a good chance those interested in living where Holmes, 35, stayed with her Evans Hotel Group heir fiancé Billy Evans, 27, may have seen her in the recent documentary The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley.

It documents how the woman Forbes in 2014 named the youngest self-made female billionaire, fell from grace when it emerged she had lied about revolutionizing pinprick blood testing.

When the company was valued at $9billion, Holmes lived in Los Altos, near the HQ, which closed a few months after she and former Theranos President Ramesh ‘Sunny’ Balwani were charged with 11 counts of wire fraud and conspiracy to commit wire fraud in June 2018.

Holmes was pictured arriving at the Robert F. Peckham U.S. Federal Court on April 22 in San Jose, California. 

Her trial date is set for July 8 and she could spend 20 years in prison if convicted.
