Former Google CEO and current executive chairman Eric Schmidt leads a fabulous life filled with luxurious yachts, homes in Silicon Valley and New York City, and even his own private jet.
According to the Post, which cites unnamed sources, the seven-bedroom house once belonged to Veronique Peck, the late wife of Hollywood legend Gregory Peck.
And luckily for Schmidt (who’s rumoured to be a bit of a ladies’ man), the chateau is about a five minutes’ walk from the Playboy Mansion.
Schmidt reportedly spent $US22 million on the purchase, which had been listed for $US24.995 million with Coldwell Banker. That’s a minuscule amount compared to his estimated net worth of $US8.3 billion.
