There’s a reason why Forbes listed Atherton, California, as the wealthiest town in America in 2019.

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 new owner of the 13,014-square-foot residence at 61 Faxon Road – if they shell out the asking price of $US27 million.

That price tag was $US5 million higher when it was listed in summer 2018, but in September of that year, the amount was slashed from $US32.5 million to $US29.5 million, according to Zillow. And just two months later the home saw another cut, this time lowering the price to $US27.5 million, and then to $US24 million when it sold in April 2019. Now, just eight months later, the mansion is back on the market for $US27 million.

Even by Atherton’s standards, the price tag is a hefty one. According to Zillow, the median home value for the neighbourhood is $US6.57 million, four times less than that of the mansion’s current listed price. But it certainly has the amenities to match: the listing includes six bedrooms, a movie theatre, a wine cellar, and is located near the elite Menlo Circus Club.

Take a look around.


The estate at 61 Faxon Road spans 1.07 acres and went on the market in June 2018. It sits in the vicinity of the area’s Menlo Circus Club, an exclusive social club for wealthy clientele.
