Ridiculously Spacious Bay Area Home for Sale, Only $29 Million
|You, too, could live here ... working as a servant|
The mega mansion, which sits on 6 acres in the quiet town of Hillsborough, is secured by classic wrought-iron gates. It has reportedly been on and off the market for more than 10 years, we're guessing because almost nobody could afford that insanity. (The mortgage would be something like $62,000 a month).
The 5,000-square-foot, 30-room home (gross) has been touted as one of the most expensive homes in the United States. And now, it's in need of a family with at least a dozen servants.
According to Technoarit:
The residence features nine bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, three half-bathrooms, a VIP suite, a guest apartment, a six-car garage, a grand ballroom, three kitchens, a library, a music room, a formal banquet room, a media room, a gym and a 1,700-bottle wine vault.It was built in 1931 for Celia Tobin Clark, an heir to the Hibernia Bank fortune -- and has been the site of many high-profile galas, including those attended by presidents Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush; British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher; and GOP presidential contender Newt Gingrich -- you know, the 1 percent.
