The 21,000-square-foot Bay Area mega-mansion with an ice rink and golf course was listed again after years of struggling to find a buyer.

Current Owner — Sun Microsystems Co-Founder, Trump Proponent, Self-proclaimed “angry capitalist” Scott McNeely — Since it was listed privately in June 2018, we have been trying to relocate the property. Astonishing and ridiculous $ 96.8 million.

Perhaps not surprisingly, it didn’t sell and was relisted in October 2019 with a significant $ 42 million price cut and an internal staging overhaul. It didn’t sell and reappeared at about the same price after being removed from MLS in December 2021.

The long list of sports facilities and the size of this place is undeniable, but if you look closely, many of the interior finishes feel more like a Marriott than a mansion, a barracks style with an industrial laundry room and three beds. It looks like a kids room. ..

If the property is sold at the asking price, the new owner will consider an annual property tax invoice for San Mateo County of approximately $ 300,000. Current listed agent Stanley Law told SFGATE in an email that the property is currently available for rent for $ 100,000 per month.

As of 2018, McNeely’s estimated net worth was $ 1 billion. He resigned in 2006 after serving as CEO of Sun Microsystems for 22 years. Oracle purchased Sun for $ 7.4 billion in 2009. This is just part of the $ 116 billion valuation at the height of the first dot-com boom.
