The most expensive homes in tech

Sergey Brin’s Greenwich Village PH, Sean Parker’s West Village Bacchus House and more

No man is an island. Some men just happen to own one.

Here are the most expensive properties belonging to tech investors, entrepreneurs and CEOs.

Some of the big tech personalities you’d expect to have extravagant homes actually live quite modestly. Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, for example, lives in a $5.3 million five-bedroom house in Palo Alto, California, and Tumblr CEO David Karp, who made over $1 billion on his company’s sale to Yahoo last year, lives in a $2 million duplex in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York.

Others, however, live in homes that scream “YOLO.” From Sean Parker’s 24-foot-wide West Village townhouse paneled with vintage subway car siding to Larry Ellison’s 98% share of the Hawaiian island of Lanai, any one of these real estate grabs will make you green with envy.

To estimate the approximate current market value of the houses, we looked at public assessors’ records and spoke to Kyle Egan, licensed real estate salesperson for Nest Seekers International, and Judy Citron, an agent with Alain Pinel Realtors.
