Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous? Yuri Milner is breaking into a stratosphere all his own.
The 49-year old Russian billionaire seems to have money spilling out of his pockets. In addition to buying the most expensive single-family home in the U.S. on record, Milner heads Digital Sky Technologies: a holding corp for investments including Facebook Inc., Groupon Inc. and Zynga Inc. (See “A Sneak Peek at the 5 Leaders of the Coming Social IPO Bubble“)
Alright. You want to see the $100 million mansion, right? Here’s what Google Earth has for us:
The hotel, I mean single-family home above, is 25,500-square-feet and resides in Los Altos Hills, California — AKA, Silicon Valley. Unfortunately, Milner didn’t help the struggling real estate market (NYSE:IYR) or withering home builders (NYSE:XHB) by purchasing 100 $1 million houses (or better yet, 200 $500,000 houses). But hey, at least California picked up some sweet property tax revenue.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the mansion is “a symmetrical limestone mansion with San Francisco Bay views that was inspired by 18th-century French chateaux. The home has indoor and outdoor pools, a ballroom and a wine cellar. The grounds include a tennis court and inside are chandeliers and a frieze around a skylight in the entryway, among other details.”
Here are some more pictures, courtesy of Business Insider:
