There’s a reason why Forbes listed Atherton, Calif., as the ritziest, highest-dollar zip code in the country in 2017.
The town is nestled in the state’s Silicon Valley, a region famed for its magnitude of tech behemoths like Google and Facebook, meaning that tech workers in the area make some of the highest salaries in the country.
And there’s a decent chance that one such techie could become the owner of a newly-constructed, 13,014-square-foot residence at 61 Faxon Road, shelling out the asking price of $US32.5 million. Even by Atherton’s standards, the price tag is a hefty one: According to Redfin, the median home value for the neighbourhood is $US6.72 million, five times less than that of the mansion’s listed price.
Take a look around.
The estate at 61 Faxon Road spans 1.07 acres and went on the market one month ago. It sits in the vicinity of the area’s Menlo Circus Club, an exclusive social club for wealthy clientele.
The contemporary home is outfitted with black stainless steel, cedar, clear glass, and natural stone.
