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.”

    Not a troll….he’s right. I just returned from four days in Tijuana, I mean LA on business. The place is an absolute s-hole. Wait til the SHTF….get your popcorn ready. A liberal paradise if there ever was one.

    “..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.

Your suspicions confirmed: Brooks Koepka is in ESPN’s Body Issue

Published

on

Brooks Koepka took to social media on Wednesday to give us all a sneak peek of his appearance in ESPN’s Body Issue, which drops next month.

Earlier this year, Koepka disclosed that he lost 24 pounds inside five months, and it was rumored that the reason for the weight loss was for a photoshoot.

Criticism from many followed at the time, with Golf Channel analyst Brandel Chamblee calling the move the “most reckless self-sabotage I have ever seen”. Two victories (including the PGA Championship) and a further four top-5 finishes later, the reason for the weight loss has now become clear.

On posting the image to his Instagram account, Koepka urged his followers to “go get a copy”. But at least one of his peers has already let the 29-year-old know that they wouldn’t be doing so, with Justin Thomas commenting

“Nah man … I’m good.”

Some awesome shots of World Woods GC in Florida courtesy of Zoe.

Although World Woods is a bit of a drive from Tampa, it is well worth the trek north for a great round of golf! The whole area had a crazy amount of rain the past couple of weeks, but besides a few flooded bunkers you wouldn’t have known (at least the Pine Barrens course)- evidence of great course drainage. The whole round I had to remind myself I was in Florida and not North Carolina. The course is tight, tree lined, and so many waste bunkers that each golf cart comes with its own sand rake. Don’t be deterred by the description though. There are plenty of “redemption” holes which help to keep scores low. I only had time to play the Pine Barrens course, but look forward to coming back to the area to try the Rolling Oaks course. The great rack rate and the proximity of other great golf courses makes this a great location for a future FL golf trip (who’s in?!? ????).
