It would be rude, of course, for Gates to have completely forgotten or ignored the comfort of his visitors. In true Gates fashion, the 1,900 square-foot guest house was the first building constructed on the property and features a modern kitchen, living area, luxurious bedroom and spacious bathroom leaving visitors little need to venture into the main house other than for entertainment. Initially built to test the technology intended for the main estate, the guest house is a miniature version of the larger home as it is filled the same modern technology and amenities.

#15 – Home Theatre

Speaking of guests and entertainment, the Xanadu 2.0 doesn’t shy away from having a little movie night fun. Designed in Art Deco style, the 1,500 square-foot theatre seats 20 guests comfortably in plush chairs and couches. The theatre even features a popcorn machine that makes every movie lover’s dreams come true with the perfect ratio of buttery goodness! Now that’s a theatre we’d like to see!

#14 – Library

One of the most unique rooms in the entire estate, Gates spared no expense when it came to furnishing his 2,100 square-foot private library. Complete with a domed roof and two secret bookcases (one of which reveals a hidden bar), the room features a quote from The Great Gatsby on the ceiling that reads, “He had come a long way to this blue lawn, and his dream must have seemed so close that he could hardly fail to grasp it.” What makes the room even more special, however, is that it’s home to Leonardo da Vinci’s 16th century Codex Leicester, which Gates purchased for $30.8 million in 1994.

#13 – The Digital Aquarium

In a high-stress world of business, Gates made sure that his home offered relaxation and tranquility. Here, you see a massive aquarium with a living-room style setting that offers a beautiful and exquisite view into the world of rare marine animals. From dolphins and whales to sea creatures and sharks, Gates went to great lengths to ensure that the marine inhabitants would thrive and never do harm to one another.
