Overlooking overlooking Lake Washington in Medina, Washington, this extensive (and partly underground) mansionis one of the phenomenons of great richness and the computer age. Bill Gates bought the property in 1988 and after over seven years, the villa was completed in 1995.
Due to the many advanced features and gadgets incorporated into the house, like double-walls for cabling, LCD "paintings" and follow-me audio entertainment, it is nicknamed Xanadu 2.0.
The house was designed by James Cutler of James Cutler Architects and Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, an architectural firm.
