To say that Ellison owns a house or two would be like saying that Tiger Woods' marriage is going through a rough patch. There's the $200
million he spent on his authentic Japanese-inspired estate in Woodside, Calif., which offers: A main house, a two-bedroom guest house, three
cottages, a barn converted into a gym, a five-acre man-made lake, two waterfalls and two bridges, according to an Almanac Online article. The legal wrangling over the
assessment and property taxes made headlines, and Larry's bill was eventually reduced from $1.8 million in 2007 to $751,041 in 2008, notes the
article. Ellison owns several other properties in and around the Bay area, though none with quite as big a lake.
