$96M Palo Alto mansion boasts pizza and 'safe' rooms

- If you've got $96.8 million to spend, this might be the house for you.

Situated in the foothills above Palo Alto, the listing agent describes it as "13.35 acres of pure privacy and tranquility."

Jeremy Osborne with Rex Real Estate says, "I think this is in a lot of ways for a buyer with the funds... this is the quintessential Silicon Valley Estate."

The home features a conference area for executive board meetings and a safe room for emergencies.

It's also got a poker room, a pizza room with a wood burning oven and a sports set up a pro-athlete would envy.

Osborne says, "It's got it's own private pavilion which is an ice hockey rink. And it also can double as a tennis court."

That ice hockey rink is separate from the indoor basketball court. There is also a full locker room and an indoor spa and massage room.

Osborne says, "Actually what I like about this house is it's split on four separate levels. So each one of the levels is not too overwhelming. They're 4000 square feet each."

The home could set a sales record for Palo Alto. Constructed in 2008, it's owned by Sun Microsystems co-founder Scott McNealy.

He also sits on the board of Rex Real Estate, the company that's selling the home.

Rex uses artificial intelligence to help match people and properties: in this case, perhaps another tech mogul looking to move in.

Osborne says, "We need to find the right buyer and the right methods. And why not use technology to make that happen."

If you think you might be interested, you might want to act quickly. The listing agent says he's talked to several prospective buyers already.
