The Russian tech investor bought this Silicon Valley manse in a record off-market deal in early 2011. The 25,500-square-foot French chateau-style mansion boasts 14 bathrooms, two dining rooms, a ballroom, a library, staff quarters, a home theater, a wine cellar, a gym, an indoor pool, and a sauna. There’s also a 4,600-square foot guest house and two three-car garages, even a private car wash. It is the second highest price on-record ever paid for a single-family home in the United States.
