Maverick McNealy’s family home is for sale…for $98.6 million

Published

on

Maverick McNealy’s father, former Sun Microsystems CEO, Scott McNealy, put the family’s Silicon Valley home on the market for a cool $98.6 million.

McNealy, who cashed out to the tune of $7.4 billion when Oracle bought Sun in 2010, talked to the Wall Street Journal about his pad.

“I’m not into sail boats or modern art, and I’m too cheap to fly private.” Instead he built, “a home and facility where the boys’ buddies would come to our place instead of driving them all over the Bay Area.”

Here’s the description of palace from it listing on REXchange.

“Located in the serene hills of Palo Alto lies 13.35 acres of pure privacy and tranquility. A Thomas Jakway designed estate, the 20-room home is comprised of 4/5 bedrooms, 7.5 baths, a 1 bedroom detached guest house, and 32,000 combined square feet. Built in 2008, the home offers the utmost in modern elegance and a sense of distinction, expansiveness, and exclusivity that is perfectly complemented by warmth and comfort––a true feeling of home.

“With four floors of seemingly infinite amenities, the home’s highlights include a social room for hosting large executive corporate retreats and other events; pizza room; poker room; spa with steam, sauna and massage table; a hidden “safe” room; disco/dance floor; full gym; pool & spa; indoor basketball/sports court; wine cellar; billiard room; media room; 110 yard golf practice area with two putting greens; and, the pièce de résistance, a multi-purpose indoor ice rink/tennis court/pavilion with its own locker room. This exceptional property offers the absolute finest details and highest level of luxury coupled with total security, safety, home automation and comfort – a rare and special combination.”

There no good photos of the golf practice area or the pizza room(!) on the listing, unfortunately, but here are a few shots of the other “seemingly infinite amenities.”

    “..110 yard golf practice area with two putting greens; and, the pièce de résistance, a multi-purpose indoor ice rink/tennis court/pavilion with its own locker room.”
    A short golf game practice facility, and, whole indoor ice rink…. oh, and a lonely tennis court. Nice, but it reveals the sporting priorities.

    Thanks, Daddy, for making me afraid and ignorant of the outside world. This sheltered kid will try to pet a bison at Yellowstone someday.

John Peterson coming out of retirement after being inspired by the Masters

Published

on

John Peterson, the former NCAA D-I individual champion, gave up his ambition of making a living on Tour last summer when he failed to keep his PGA Tour card, but inspired by Tiger Woods’ victory at the Masters, Peterson is set to make a comeback.

The 30-year-old has been working in a real estate office for the past seven months and announced his decision to return on Matt Moscona’s radio show “After Review” on 104.5 FM ESPN Baton Rouge. The Texan told Moscona about the desire he felt once again to tee it up while watching the Masters earlier this month, with both Patrick Cantlay and Tiger Woods serving as pivotal players in Peterson’s decision.

“Sometimes you’ve got to take a step back to realize what you had. I was in an office for seven months, and it was fine when I started, I was paying the bills. Then the Masters came along and I’m watching this kid Patrick Cantlay, who in 2011 finished second to me in the National Championship when he was at UCLA, and he’s finishing ninth in the Masters, it’s on TV, and I beat him and I beat him a lot and I’m just like man, that could be me.”

“And then Tiger wins, with his story, it was just so inspiring, honestly. And I quit my job, seriously, the next day after the Masters.”

As for where he stands at this particular moment with his comeback, Peterson has no Tour status and will rely on sponsor exemptions and Monday qualifiers, while the mini-tour route is another option for the Texan. Peterson knows he’s taking a risk in his latest comeback, but the 30-year-old sounds ready for the challenge that lies ahead.

“I’m taking a big risk, and I really don’t have any place to play right now 100 percent, so I have to qualify and stuff. I will get back, I know I will. It’s just kind of a regret watching the guys that I played with my whole life finish top 10 in the majors and just knowing I can do it.”
