Go inside the Silicon Valley home that Yahoo's first CEO is selling for $19.4 million
Koogle and his wife, Pam Scott, have owned the 12-acre property in Los Altos, California, since 2003, when they bought it for about $8 million, according to Bloomberg.The renovated, midcentury house has four bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths, a detached four-car garage, a guesthouse, and a terrace.Advertisement
Koogle said that his home has played host to a series of influential talks and presentations from people in his business network, including Elon Musk in the beginning days of Tesla.
Koogle was the CEO of Yahoo from 1995 to 2001. He was on the company's board of directors until 2003.While the couple has many warm memories at this house, they also own at least six other properties. For this reason, Koogle and his wife decided it was in their best interest to downsize.
