    Facebook COO and “Lean In” author, Sheryl Sandberg, has quietly sold her sprawling estate in Atherton, CA for $9,250,000.

    The deal closed on September 19, 2014.

    Sandberg purchased the private and gated 7 bedroom, 8.5 bathroom, 11,430 square foot estate with her husband, SurveyMonkey CEO David Goldberg, on December 17, 2004 for $7,995,000, when she was still a high-ranking executive at Google.

    Flash-forward to March 2008, when she officially joined Facebook, which was then headquartered less than 10 minutes away in Palo Alto, CA. With a short commute and a gorgeous place to call home, Sandberg was living the Silicon Valley dream.

    The prestigious home sits in desirable Atherton, CA, which was just named as the ‘Most Expensive Zip Code in America‘ by Forbes magazine. Exemplifying a classic, time-honored appeal, Sandberg’s just-sold three-story home is stylishly appointed, with exceptional finishes throughout.

    Completed in 2004 and sold to Sandberg a year later, the property has both a main residence and a guest house with full kitchen and bathroom.

    In December 2009, Sheryl and her husband bought a 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 2,900 square foot home on a large lot in nearby Menlo Park, CA, where Facebook moved their headquarters to in 2011. There, amid traditional and Spanish-style homes, they proceeded to build a slightly smaller, but much more modern family home. Stretching over 9,200 square feet, her newly-built home has a futuristic glass and steel exterior.

    According to plans and permits filed with the city of Menlo Park, the house has 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. The first floor has a great room stretching over 800 square feet and a subterranean basement houses an office, gym, wine room, theater, and guest bedroom. Atop the home, Sandberg installed solar panels and a “living roof.”

    The Symon Group of Alain Pinel Realtors represented Sandberg and Goldberg in the sale and Kay Wang, also of Alain Pinel Realtors, represented the buyer.

        5 bedrooms, 5 full and 2 partial bathrooms, 9,308 square feet on 2.6 acres in prestigious Atherton, CA

        Price

        $19,800,000

        Completed in 2010, this home in Atherton, California, one of the “most expensive zip codes in America,” is a masterful expression of modern design situated on 2.6 acres of private resort-like grounds with pool, spa, barbecue kitchen, playground and vast stretch of level lawn. Precision craftsmanship showcases the architecture of award-winning firm Swatt Miers.

        Throughout the three levels, the pervasive use of extraordinary materials – Honduran mahogany, African walnut, and lighting fixtures that stand alone as pieces of art – establish a rich, meditative tone that works in harmony with the beauty of the setting. Tremendous walls of glass, all with hidden custom shades and many providing cross-ventilation, provide a seamless connection to the outdoors where a heritage oak stands as the focal point around which the home’s L-shaped design was conceived.

        The home’s personal accomodations are comprised of 5 bedrooms upstairs, including a divine master suite, plus a main-level suite accessed from the outside – making it ideal for guests or as an office. The design is open and voluminous, accentuated with floating steps, a glass bridge walkway inspired by the Museum of Modern Art, and ceiling lines that connect with cantilevered extensions outdoors. The property also features an attached 3-car garage.

        Brent Gullixson and Royce Cablayan have the listing.
