The most expensive listed Bay Area home within the last decade is currently for sale for nearly $100 million, with extensive and plentiful amenities to match.

Originally reported by The Wall Street Journal, the 32,000-square-foot home at 610 Los Trancos Rd in Palo Alto, Calif., belongs to Scott McNealy, who co-founded the computer company Sun Microsystems before Oracle bought it in 2010 for $7.4 billion.

He purchased the first part of the home’s 13-acre lot in the mid-1980s before having the gargantuan home built in 2008. He, his wife and their four sons have lived there ever since, but now that the parents are empty nesters, “the house deserves more activity,” McNealy told The Wall Street Journal.

Take a look inside the 20-room, four-story house.


The monumental home is nothing short of extravagant, as reflected in its $96.8 million price tag.

At nearly $100 million, it’s the most expensive home listed in the Bay Area in the last ten years, according to a spokesperson for the realtor. If it sells for above $47.5 million, the price of a Belvedere, Calif., mansion sold in August of 2015, it will officially be the most expensive Bay Area home sold in the last decade.


The home boasts 20 rooms, two fireplaces and a pool — and that’s just scratching the surface.

There are plenty of amenities for entertaining in the backyard, like outdoor seating and a grill for barbecuing.

And a pool of course.

McNealy told The Wall Street Journal that the home also has a safe room with panic buttons and a Kevlar door.


In case you want some pampering but don’t want to head to a salon, there’s a spa and massage space.

And perhaps the home’s most extraordinary feature is its 7,300-square-foot multi-purpose sports area, which can be used as a tennis court and ice rink among other things.

And if that weren’t enough, there’s also an indoor sports court. You know, just in case.

A contender for the best part of the house is the pizza room, which includes a pizza oven for making, and enjoying, your own homemade pies.

There’s a 110-yard golfing practice area as well, which all four of McNealy’s sons utilized while they were living there. McNealy’s oldest son, Maverick, is a professional golfer at 22 years old.

There’s also a detached one-bedroom guest house on the property.

Like the main house, it’s a warm and rustic abode to accommodate guests.

Which I’d imagine the future owner will have a lot of, considering all the amenities the home offers.
