Bill Gates' house is a large mansion in the side of a hill which overlooks Lake Washington in Medina, Washington, United States of America. The Template:Convert mansion is noted for its design and the technology it incorporates. It is nicknamed Xanadu 2.0[1] after the title character's estate in Citizen Kane. It took 7 years to build and cost $63.2 million.

In 2009, property taxes were reported to be US $1.063 million on a total assessed value of US$147.5 million.[2]

Design and featuresEdit

The house was the result of a collaboration between Bohlin Cywinski Jackson Architects (based in Pennsylvania but with satellite offices in Seattle and San Francisco) and Cutler-Anderson Architects of Bainbridge Island, Washington.[3][4] Neither company's website currently has information or images of the house, perhaps due to Gates' privacy concerns.

The mansion is a modern design in the Pacific Lodge style, with classic features such as a big private library with a dome shaped roof and oculus.[5][6] The house also features an estate-wide server system, a Template:Convert swimming pool with an underwater music system, a Template:Convert gym, a Template:Convert dining room, and heated floors and driveways.[7] Guests wear pins that automatically adjust temperature, music, and lighting based on their preferences upon entering a room.[8] It is also an earth-sheltered house.[9]
