California is home to some of the most expensive real estate in the country. The Bay Area is pricier even still, and a select few estates can fetch more than $10 million on the open market. Such sales are rare, but how about $100 million sales? Or $117.5 million sales, to be more precise? That's the price that an estate in Woodside, California, recently fetched, making it the most expensive home sale in the United States on record. The 9-acre property was never officially listed for sale and quietly changed hands in November 2012.

While the price is staggering, the property itself is also stunning. Architect Allan Greenberg designed the home and described it as being located in "an elaborate hilltop garden." The home, explained Greenberg, "is planned around hyphens and dependencies and features a double volume, elliptical garden room." The main house is 9,000 square feet and built in a neoclassical style. The rest of the property includes a 715-square-foot "retreat" building, a 1,117-square-foot swimming pool, a tennis court, and formal gardens spread across 9 acres with 360-degree views.

The home was built in 2005 and contains four bedrooms, five bathrooms, and a massive 1,600-square-foot basement. The property also has a four-car garage.

Holy crap talk about expensive. You're not getting much house either for the money. The town where I grew up had much better houses than that, granted it wasn't in California, but a damn good location with top 10 schools in the state...

I'd take a basic 3 bedroom 2 bath, and the cash please.
