 Prices for homes in Northern California are notoriously steep, with tech money contributing to a somewhat inflated real estate market.

According to a recent report by real estate information service DataQuick, luxury home sales in the area continue to grow, with 2,604 homes selling for more than $2 million last year. This was a 28% jump from 2012 and the highest number ever recorded.

The team at Point2Homes helped us gather data on the most expensive homes for sale in nine Silicon Valley cities: Palo Alto, Portola Valley, Sunnyvale, Cupertino, Campbell, Monte Sereno, Los Altos, San Jose, and Mountain View.

Palo Alto — home to tech giants Tim Cook, Marissa Mayer, and Mark Zuckerberg — completely dominated the list with 7 of the 15 priciest homes on the market.

Address: Undisclosed, Palo Alto

Price: $14.99 million

This Palo Alto home has a ridiculously large wine cellar, private screening room, assorted sculptures, and a hillside fire pit.

 

Address: 435 Coleridge Avenue, Palo Alto

Price: $15.95 million

Located in a quiet, tree-lined street in the heart of Palo Alto, this 5,882-square-foot house has its own pool, spa, sport court, and detached pool house.

 

Address: 11801 Dorothy Anne Wy, Cupertino

Price: $18 million

Several detached buildings sprawl over the ranch, totaling 12 bedrooms and 11 baths. Stables and orchards provide a great escape from the pressure of business in Silicon Valley.

 

Address: 215 Lowell Avenue, Palo Alto

Price: $23 million

Dating back to 1916, this 7-bedroom home has been updated to include all of the modern amenities. It has an impressively large lawn, pool, and tennis courts.
