A beautiful home owned by former Yahoo CEO Tim Koogle has hit the market for $US19.4 million.
Koogle and his wife, Pam Scott, have owned the 12-acre property in Los Altos, California, since 2003, when they bought it for about $US8 million, according to Bloomberg.
The renovated, midcentury house has four bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths, a detached four-car garage, a guesthouse, and a terrace.
Koogle said that his home has played host to a series of influential talks and presentations from people in his business network, including Elon Musk in the beginning days of Tesla.
Koogle was the CEO of Yahoo from 1995 to 2001. He was on the company’s board of directors until 2003.
While the couple has many warm memories at this house, they also own at least six other properties. For this reason, Koogle and his wife decided it was in their best interest to downsize.
Richard Williamson of Sotheby’s International Realty has the listing.

A consistent, open theme is seen throughout the house, with only bright colours being used to accent the glass walls.
Entertaining has been very important to Koogle during his time here, and that is reflected in the living spaces as well as the formal dining rooms.
The closed garden is a favourite spot. What began as a small vegetable patch on the property's terrace has grown into a blossoming community garden between the couple and friends at a different location.
