Where Does Bill Gates Live ?
The former Chairman and founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates, lives in a large mansion on the 73rd Avenue, NE of Medina, Washington, U.S.A.
The earth-sheltered house designed by James Cutler overlooks the Lake Washington and costs more than 97 million dollars. The mansion spans more than 66,000 square feet and is seated on 2.1 hectare lot size. The lot was purchased in 1988 and the house took more than eight years to complete.
