Yuri Milner and the $100 million home

Although Russian billionaire Yuri Milner was rumored to have dropped $70 million on his new Silicon Valley mansion, reports now show that closing price was off — by $30 million, according to the Wall Street Journal. Milner, the head of Digital Sky Technologies and an investor in Facebook and Groupon, actually spent $100 million on his 25,500-square-foot Los Altos Hills, Calif. mansion, making it the most expensive single-family home ever purchased in the U.S. The property, which includes indoor and outdoor pools, a ballroom and a wine cellar, sits on 11 acres. No word yet on whether the five-bedroom, nine-bathroom home will serve as Milner’s primary residence. [WSJ via MSNBC]
