Have you wondered what a billionaire's home would look like? If not, then Bill Gates' home will offer you with a wildest dream. At 66,000 square feet, the home is absolutely massive, and even loaded to the brim with high-tech details. Read on to find out the craziest things inside!
Gates home is located just off the shore of Lake Washington and offers exquisite views of Seattle from the house. Take a glance of the sheltered estate, and you will be stunned at these verdant trees. Besides the esthetic values they bring about, they help to regulate temperature efficiently.
Here comes one of Gates' favorite touches of the outdoors, a maple tree! It continually enjoys shines that are monitored by a computer. Also, Gates placed an artificial stream with water to prevent the retaining walls from runoff. More surprisingly, the stream is actually filled with salmons and sea-run cutthroat trouts.
Built with half a million board-feet of lumber, the house was undeniably in harmony with nature.
This massive aquarium with a living-room style is tailored for this purpose. A stunning view into the world of rare marine animals is offered. From sharks, dolphins to whales, Gates really has to make sure that the inhabitants of his little tank would not do harm to one another.
This room seems to be shabby at first sight. But, the exposed wood beam ceilings and unique stone grey fireplace make it truly a stunning room to enjoy even in the rainiest of days.
If you possess a beautiful view of Lake Washington and Seattle, glass walls then seem like a must choice for many of the rooms. The interior of the house boasts simple slate floors and plenty of lighting to illuminate the space.
When modern elements meet natural elegance, every piece of furniture screams LUXURY in Gates home.
Gates home proves to be more modest when it comes to technology. All tech gadgets are used for the sake of creating a beautiful and relaxing space. This beautiful living room is open to gorgeous views and has a modest television. The TV can serve as the private theatre with an overhead projection screen.
Glass and blue lighting are frequently used throughout the Gates home. In the picture, a wide range of textures and colors is offered in the master bathroom, such as the tiled wall and sinks to the column. A large white square tub anchors the room and is surrounded by a moat of pebbles that add tranquility to this gorgeous design.
Again, blue lighting illuminates the room, creating a comfortable environment that is accompanied nicely with white linens and a huge bed. The stone fireplace mantle holds a small television, once again enhancing the peacefulness of the room.
Guests will have the least of worry about whether there's enough room for them to crash. In addition to the 6 kitchens, Gates' house boasts 7 bedrooms. So take your pick of rooms.
Can you see it? Or you just missed this marvelous design at first glance. The crystal clear water is decorated by wood decking. The pool's decoration is modest to better show the stunning view of Lake Washington and the city of Seattle.
These sinks in Gates' master bathroom most likely cannot be found anywhere else.
This must be our favorite point in the house. A traditionally covered patio opens to a blue-floor illuminated by blue lighting and offering exquisite views of Lake Washington and Seattle.
Real luxury is always subtle. The full-glass wall offers landscaped views, and the natural wood floors and simple design of the kitchen are all dedicated to entertaining guests.
Now take a look at another sight of the kitchen. When it's sunday, rays of golden sunbeam pour down from the outside, isn't it beautiful?
Now you'll be greeted with the hallmark of this property: the huge library. Complete with a domed roof, the library also features two secret pivoting bookcases, one of which was even turned into a bar. Well, the most impressive part is Codex Leicester, a 16th century notebook that belonged to Leonardo da Vinci, which cost Gates $30.8 million in 1994.
For much of the family's time in this house, Gates decided to make an entire room of trampolines. Featuring a 20-foot ceiling, it can also be used as a fitness center, and there's a sauna and steam room.
