Inside Bill Gates’ Home: 16 Rare Photos From His Mansion

Bill Gates has been the world’s richest man for many years now, but he is a modest spender and would live in a not so extravagantly expensive house right unlike so many other people who are not as rich as he is. The billionaire is a thrift spender and a huge fan of charity. But that doesn’t mean his home wouldn’t offer as much comfort as we expect a billionaire’s home to. The founder of Microsoft decided to spend a little freely and extravagantly for once. He didn’t mind the cost this time making sure his home offered sheer pleasure and peace. The moneyed American’s home is estimated to cost a whopping $150 million, the highest on record for an American residence. Located in Medina, Washington, this stunning home is sure to please. Here are 12 rare photos from inside the extremely stunning Bill Gates’ home.

The first thing that comes to almost everybody’s mind when they see titles as ‘have a sneak peek into the house of the richest man in the world’ is a home packed with modern technology and the latest gadgets. Well, as expected the billionaire’s home has its own fair share of modern technology! Speaking of technology, the billionaire wanted a spectacular relaxing and peaceful space but did not make his home too technological. In the photo above, the magnificent living room offers gorgeous views and features a modest television that serves as the private theatre with an overhead projection screen

There is a networked system that regulates the temperature, music, and lighting based on microchips guests put on which tells the house’s computers their position in the house. Each room they enter, the temperature is adjusted to their preference.

Also, there is a central media server which allows any person occupying each room to choose from a big library of movies, music, and art to be shown on high-definition monitors in most of the rooms in the house. Speakers hidden in the walls allow music to automatically follow guests from room to room. Guests can begin watching a movie in their bedroom, and resume the film seamlessly after they walk to the mansion’s private movie theatre.

Just off the porch, there is a room called the dust room which looks like one of the messiest rooms in any home. But this dust room stands out in the rule. With exposed wood beam ceilings and a unique stone grey fireplace, this sensational enclosure is one of those kinds of rooms that offer thrilling and amazing feelings when basking in it even on the rainiest of days. The room is enjoyable and the wood table and natural colour palette are no doubt lovable.

Just like the interior of Gates’ home, the outside is out of this world. Located just off the shores of Lake Washington, the property’s setting is an astonishing reminder of the wondrous beauty of nature. Apparently built into the hilly landscape, the house and its exterior improvements are nestled into surrounding evergreens. From the boat ramp to the upper parking area, everything about the residence is stunning. The house provides incredible views of Seattle.

Aquarium

Master Bedroom and Bathroom

Bill Gates' Home

The use of glass and blue lighting appears to be the customary features in the whole of the Gates’ home. Like other parts of the house, the bedroom and bathroom feature blue lightning too. There is an impressive arrangement of textures and colours in the bathroom design from the tiled wall and sinks to the column itself. The bathroom also has a massive white square tub covered by a moat of pebbles that add calmness to the beautiful design. A GPS system in the billionaire’s car alerts his networked bathtub to start filling itself with hot water as Gates drives home from work or any other place.

Inside the master bedroom, Melinda Gates has a walk-in closet with a 40-foot long moving conveyor rack for clothing storage. With the white plush carpet that would make you think you’re walking on a cloud, the white linens, a huge bed, and the stone fireplace mantle that holds a modest television, the bedroom focuses on offering absolute tranquillity and relaxation.

Sink:

The sinks pictured here can be found in the billionaire’s master bathroom. Clearly, the sinks are rare and most probably can’t be seen anywhere else except in the billionaire’s home. Some fascinating fixtures mounted on the wall extend to an oval ring which distributes the water in a funnel-shape. The appealing copper tile adds to the stone sink and stainless faucets. The house contains 24 bathrooms, including ten baths. That’s how relaxing it can get!

Roof Top Seating

I personally think this spot is the best of all parts of the billionaire’s home. This area hidden in the corner offers views from the top floor of the house. In this place, a traditional covered patio opens to a blue-infinity pool lighted up by blue lights and providing extremely beautiful views of Lake Washington and Seattle. The alluring stunning seating and the way the blue lighting changes smoothly and continuously with no apparent space into the horizon perfects the setting. The 60-foot heated swimming pool has an underwater music system.

Reception Hall

Here is the reception hall in the billionaire’s mansion. It was built mostly below ground, under the estate’s hillside. The hall can cater to 200 guests for cocktail parties. The space features an entire wall made of high-definition video screens, a full restaurant-grade kitchen sits just off the hall to make food and drink available during parties. The banquet hall itself is more than 2,300 square feet. Also, the house has a 2,500 sq. ft. gym, a 1,000 sq. ft. dining room, and a large private library with a dome roof and an oculus. Driveways and walkways on the estate are also heated as well as all floors in the mansion itself.

The mansion has an extensive security system. Almost all the areas in the house can be viewed by cameras concealed in the walls, the ceilings, and in trees and stones outside. Sensors in the floors can track individuals in the house to an accuracy of six inches.
