Jeff Skoll is the one-time president of e-commerce powerhouse eBay and founder of Participant Media, whose credits include films like The Help, Lincoln, and Spotlight. One of the world’s richest Canadians, Skoll’s net worth is said to be in the neighborhood of $3.8 billion.
Not too long ago he listed his eight-bedroom, 10-bathroom Los Altos Hills home for $19,988,000.
Built by Owen Signature Homes in 1990, this “one-of-a-kind” estate includes a 14,855-square-foot main residence, a guest house, an eight-car garage, tennis courts, an indoor basketball court, and a rock climbing wall.
The single-family home with a formal entry; “intricately-designed” ceilings; and hardwood, marble, and tile flooring throughout also has seven fireplaces, an eat-in kitchen with a built-in barbecue grill and pizza oven, a wine cellar, a library, an indoor fitness pool, a game room with a bar, a formal dining room, a living room, a separate family room, and a home office. Bathrooms come with granite and marble accents.
Minutes away from Palo Alto and Mountain View, this property with state-of-the-art technology has expansive and lush lawns, rose gardens, and more than 100 mature trees throughout its more than three acres.
Skoll currently owns two properties in Beverly Hills, which he purchased two years ago.
Joe Piazza is the listing agent for this property for sale.
