Silicon Valley real estate stunner: Woodside estate sells for $117.5 million
Source: San Jose Mercury News
A legendary investor's sprawling estate here has sold for $117.5 million, one of the highest prices ever for a residential property in the U.S.
The sale price eclipses the previous Silicon Valley record of $100 million paid for a Los Altos Hills mansion by Russian investor Yuri Milner in 2011 and comes amid a red-hot market for luxury home sales in Silicon Valley and the Peninsula.

Even modest houses are commanding prices of more than $1 million in nearby communities that are closer to the Facebooks and Googles of the valley.

4. Well, on the flipside--
there goes the theory that big money was going to flee CA after the passage of Prop 30...other than that, I have nothing. My rent just went up and I live 15 minutes away from the SV hothouse. It's great to live here if you have money. Too bad I don't.
