The CEO of ""Cisco Systems"":http://www.cisco.com/ has listed his luxurious Silicon Valley estate. John Chambers, who also serves as Cisco's chairman, is selling his six-acre Los Altos Hills property for $14.8 million. Built in the 90s, the 8,280-square-foot home includes the usual high-end amenities like a swimming pool, jacuzzi, and tennis court.
However, ""Curbed.com"":http://curbed.com/archives/2012/07/19/cisco-systems-big-wig-lists-utterly-uninspiring-mansion.php calls Chambers' house ""ho-hum,"" noting that the lackluster finishes and ""sad"" furnishings are in need of a major update. A quick look at the available images of the technology guru's home confirms Curbed's assertions, but the property's acreage provides a stunning backdrop that should minimize the home's aesthetic shortcomings. Not to mention that those looking to make a statement with their real estate will gain an address in one of the most expensive zip codes in the U.S., according to ""_Forbes_"":http://www.forbes.com/sites/morganbrennan/2011/10/12/americas-most-expensive-zip-codes/.[COLUMN_BREAK] [IMAGE]
