Saturday Open Thread: Rename that Island

Happy weekend! Going on a vacation? Of course not! The Real Bay Area is so awesome, you’ll staycate all summer. And what could be better than going to work, anyway?

Unless your name is Larry Ellison, and you can afford to buy most of a Hawaiian island for yourself.

Your mission is to rename the island to something more appropriate. Like Larai.

Update: Oh yeah, this is also an open thread. Duh.

Larry Unloads His Other Woodside Listing

We’ve spent too much time talking about Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg, so it’s time to show Larry Ellison a little Burbed love.  And why not, when you could be the next owner of this Woodside home he’s no longer using, since he’s too busy buying up every piece of lakefront property on Tahoe he can find.

 

1 TURKEY FARM Ln, Woodside, CA 94062
$19,000,000

Private & secluded at the end of a cul-de-sac 1 Turkey Farm–Classic colonial 4bd/3.5ba home, pool house, pond-like pool with elevated spa, 125 Roberta–1bd/1ba guesthouse, beach volley ball court, ponds Equestrian facilities 5-stall barn on each property Western Hill View Woodside Elementary

I deliberately misled you by putting the last picture up on the Redfin overview shot.  That’s the guesthouse, or the equestrian facilities, or maybe both.  I used that shot because I thought Burbed readers really enjoy seeing the house in KawlumVision.

And if that isn’t worth $23 million $19 million, I don’t know what is.  Although it’s too bad you won’t have Larry as a neighbor if you buy here.  His Japanese castle is almost a mile away.  Neighbors love having Larry next door since he picks fights about things like tree heights and solves the problem by buying your house for $40 million.
