Photos: California home for sale for €77 million (but the owner comes with it)

Let’s have a gawk around.

IT COSTS $100 million (€77 million), comes with its own ballroom, and has knockout views of San Francisco – but there’s also a catch.

This gigantic mansion in California is up for sale by its elderly owner who is doing some estate planning, and as part of the terms and conditions, he won’t be handing over the house until he dies.  Christian de Guigne IV, whose grandfather started building the house 99 years ago, has exclusive use of the home until his death, according to The Wall Street Journal, which could be awkward for anyone hoping to move into their new pad any time soon.

The giant house has seven bedrooms, a servants’ wing, two reservoirs, a flower-arranging room and – of course! – a pool.

Let’s have a look around.
