The monumental home is nothing short of extravagant. At nearly $100 million, it was the most expensive home listed in the Bay Area in the past 10 years, according to a representative for the realtor.

The home has since seen a $50 million price cut and is listed for nearly $55 million. The home boasts 20 rooms, two fireplaces, and a pool — and that’s just scratching the surface.

Homeowners and guests enter through an entryway.

The house has a traditional, slightly rustic vibe.

A wide living area holds one of the home’s two fireplaces.

Like the rest of the house, the kitchen has natural light streaming in through large windows.

The master bathroom includes a large tub with a skylight, as well as a couch and a vanity.

The master bedroom also includes a skylight and windows with the hillside in view.

The closets, like the home they’re in, are expansive, and they put your average walk-in closet to shame.

There are plenty of amenities for entertaining in the backyard, like outdoor seating and a grill for barbecuing …

… and a pool of course.

An expansive game room allows for ample amusement and leisure.

Off the game room is a poker room.

There’s also a fully equipped gym …

… and a media room featuring rows of plushy lounge chairs and a screen.

And what multimillion-dollar home is complete without a wine cellar?

McNealy told The Journal the home also has a safe room with panic buttons and a Kevlar door.

In case you want some pampering but don’t want to head to a salon, there’s a spa and massage space.

Perhaps the home’s most extraordinary feature is its 7,300-square-foot multipurpose sports area, which can be used as a tennis court or an ice rink, among other things.

As if that weren’t enough, there’s also an indoor sports court. You know, just in case.

A contender for the best part of the house is the pizza room, which includes a pizza oven for making homemade pies.

There’s a 110-yard golfing practice area, which all four of McNealy’s sons used while they were living there. McNealy’s oldest son, Maverick, 22, is a professional golfer.

There’s also a detached one-bedroom guesthouse on the property.

Like the main house, it’s a warm and rustic abode to accommodate guests …

… which I’d imagine the future owner will have a lot of, considering all the home’s amenities.
