Billionaire Paul Allen - $27 Million Estate in West Atherton, CA

Property Summary

Ranked as one of the most expensive zip codes in America, the San Francisco Bay Area community of Atherton has been a favorite choice for Bay Area royalty over the years, with various tech billionaires and business icons calling the affluent community home. Google’s Eric Schmidt, Hewlett-Packard’s Meg Whitman, Oracle’s Mark Hurd, Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg, and the founder and CEO namesake of Charles Schwab have all chosen to live there. So it may be less of a surprise to find that Paul Allen, the billionaire co-founder of Microsoft has purchased a new $27 million estate in Atherton.
The stunning new 22,000 sq. ft. estate property on a 1.97-acre lot was completed in 2013. The contemporary residence located just outside of Menlo Park features a sleek, light-filled main home with eight bedrooms, nine full baths, a spa, a home movie theater and seven fireplaces. The dramatic grounds also feature a 5-car garage that includes a detached guest/manager suite with two bedroom suites and a kitchen.
The sumptuously sybaritic, light-filled, stately trophy residence was designed with an elegantly astringent architectural regime and a discriminating materials palette. Beautiful built-ins, walls of glass, vaulted ceilings and generally palatial accommodations abound in the residence, while a fully fitted and finished lower level accommodates several casual living areas and fashionable lounges. Outside, a private pool, fire pit and patio area sit behind the main home, while the elaborate property is supremely landscaped with manicured rows of trees and artfully purposed lush grounds.
