Here's How to Score a Bay Area Billionaire as a Neighbor

View as Map

The folks over at SFLuxe have released their 3rd annual Bay Area Billionaires list for 2014, which lists every billionaire who calls the Bay Area home. Of the 67 billionaires, 25 live right here in San Francisco. As expected, quite a few are sprinkled throughout Silicon Valley, with a heavy presence in both Woodside and Palo Alto. Since new billionaires seem to sprout up pretty regularly around these parts, we thought it best to compile a map of the most expensive abodes currently on the market in Palo Alto and Woodside. As you probably know, one of the first items that need attending to a newly minted bazillionaire is purchasing a really big house in Silicon Valley. Of course, all these homes have bells and whistles like tennis courts and vineyards. We're doing you a favor, newly minted billionaires. Please invite us to your housewarming party.
