Few, however, are quite as lavish as this luxurious piece of paradise in the Palo Alto hills that is currently on the market for $100 million.
Owned by Scott McNealy, the co-founder of computer technology company Sun Microsystems, the four-story home contains a total of 20 rooms – including five bedrooms and seven bathrooms – and is spread over 581,526 square foot.
The property has a rustic charm and is billed as being ideal for families. It comes with state-of-the-art security equipment and a plethora of other modern amenities including a swimming pool and a games room.
Other notable features include a poker room, a fully-equipped media room with plush lounge chairs, a fully-furnished gym, an indoor sports club, a 110-yard golf course, a spa, a tennis court and an ice rink.
If that’s not enough, dedicated foodies will also enjoy a BBQ grill, outdoor seating area, pizza room and in-built wine cellar.
American businessman Scott McNealy is most famous for co-founding Sun Microsystems in 1982 along with Vinod Khosla, Bill Joy, and Andy Bechtolshei.
