The Palo Alto, California, mansion was built for Tech billionaire McNealy, wife Susan and their four sons, who range in age from 16 to 22, and was meant to be ‘a home where the boys’ buddies would come to our place instead of driving them all over the Bay Area,’ McNealy told the Wall Street Journal.

But that’s not all! The manse also features a 4,700-square-foot gym with climbing wall, locker room, indoor sports court and party space with a disco ball-lit dance floor.
The four-floor home’s more traditional mega mansion features include a spa and steam room, sauna and massage table, wine cellar, ‘pizza room’ with pizza oven, home theater, poker and billiards room and safe room with panic buttons and kevlar door.
The home, which was completed in 2008, sits on two parcels of land that McNealy acquired, the first in the 1980s and the other in 2001. He is said to have shelled out $11million to by the property’s 13 acres.
McNealy said that he splashed out to build the extravagant house because, ‘I’m not into sailboats or modern art, and I’m too cheap to fly private,’ he told the Wall Street Journal.
McNealy and his wife said that they are selling their home in anticipation of all their children leaving the nest.
‘The house deserves more activity than the two of us,’ McNealy said.
The home is listed with REX, a real estate startup that Tech billionaire McNealy is both an investor in and board member of.
Tech billionaire McNealy was the chief executive of Sun Microsystems, which was sold to Oracle for $7.4 billion in 2010.
