Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios president Ed Catmull bought a Beaux-Arts mansion in San Francisco’s Pacific Heights neighborhood last month, according to Realtor.com. The five-bedroom, 6,700-square-feet home, built in 1915, set him back almost $10 million. ($9.95 million to be exact but who’s counting?)

Take a look inside:

Catmull owns tens of millions of dollars worth of real estate property, which he frequently flips for profit. Last year Catmull put a home in Hawaii on the market for $20 million. It was the third home in Hawaii that he’d put on the market in the last five years. Meanwhile, he sold a Marin county estate in 2012 for $8.35 million.

A co-founder of Pixar, Catmull has been identified as one of the key architects of an alleged industry-wide conspiracy to suppress artist wages and curtail hiring competition throughout the animation and vfx industries.

Catmull, who has refused to apologize for his actions, is currently a defendant in multiple lawsuits related to his role in the wage-theft scheme, including a shareholder suit against the Walt Disney Company and a class-action representing thousands of animation artists.
