A French style chateau in the Silicon Valley will surely be noticed for a number of reasons. And it is now the talk of the town, because of its new high profile residents and the kind of price it demands off them. The newest single family in the valley is that of Russian investor Yuri Milner. The 30,000 square feet mansion fetched it original owners Fred and Annie Chan a staggering $100 million, according to a person familiar with the deal, making it the most expensive deals of its kind.
Completed in 2008, the 18th century French-style Chateaux is made in symmetrical limestone. Designed by architects William Hablinski and Richard Manion starting 2001, the house features a ballroom, home theater, wine cellar, indoor pool, a tennis court and outdoor pool apart from the family rooms and bedroom suites. The architect’s website also shows pictures of a loggia, with chandeliers, a frieze that is placed around a skylight at the entrance.
