Tech Billionaire Scott McNealy Lists 32,000-Square-Foot Stunner in Silicon Valley
All across the sunshine state, California boasts outrageous megamansions and estates. From Los Angeles’ contemporary stunners to Hollywood Hill’s largest home ever built, impressive properties are constantly coming and going on the market. Now, a luxurious mansion in Silicon Valley is up for sale, owned by tech billionaire Scott McNealy and seeking $53.88 million. As the co-founder of Sun Microsystems, which sold to Oracle for $7.4 billion in 2010, McNealy is a pro in the tech industry so this abode could rub off on Silicon Valley billionaire-in-the-making. Surely, there are more than a few browsing.
The property spans 13 acres, and is packed with countless surprising amenities that new homeowners would never expect. Custom-built by McNealy and his wife Susan in 2008, the estate was created to be their dream family home. Promoting an active and healthy life, it includes a fully stacked gym, locker room, basketball court, ice rink, pool, dance and yoga studio, putting greens, and hiking and riding trails.
For more intimate and laid back entertaining experiences, the home features a wine cellar, poker room, event space, billiards room, and movie theater.
“We wanted to create the ideal home to support the growth and development of our family athletically, musically, academically and socially. We treasure the time we spent in pursuit of all of their interests, and sharing our home with our friends, classmates, extended family and business associates. As newly minted empty nesters, we take pride in knowing that the next owners will enjoy similar experiences while we move into the next stage of our family’s life with a new home closer to our son as he pursues a career on the PGA Tour,” stated McNealy, on the family’s decision to part ways with the estate.
Samira Amid-Hozour of Compass and Deepee Chattha of REX are co-listing the property. Mansion Global first reported on McNealy’s listing.
