The Bay Area housing market is bleak.

In November, an estate that spans nearly 220,000 square feet in Ross, a town just north of San Francisco, was listed for $85 million, according to Mansion Global.

That price tag makes it the most expensive current listing in the area. It is currently priced at more than double the area's real-estate record. The home that holds the record was initially listed for $42 million and ultimately sold for $38 million. Another home, 950 Lombard, has been on track to break the record at its current reduced $40.5 million asking price, as previously reported by Business Insider.

The $85 million listing is held by Neal Ward and Glen Williams of Compass. Keep reading for a look at the five-acre property.

If the property sells for anywhere near the asking price of $85 million, it will dwarf the current San Francisco-area real-estate record of $38 million.
