$11.9 Million Gets You “The House That the Commodore 64 Built”

Jack Tramiel passed away earlier this year. If the name doesn't ring a bell, then you might know him as the man who helped revolutionize the computer industry, ushering in the Commodore 64 into millions of homes. In the wake of his passing, Tramiel's own house is now on the market for a whopping 11.9 million.


All that cash gets you a neoclassical home that sits on 1.27 acres in Moreno Valley, California, with a giant pool, fully equipped guest house, wine cellar and oodles of expensive-looking marble all over the place. The estate was built in 1992, and likely came after Tramiel's dealings with both Commodore and Atari had truckloads of cash coming in on a daily basis. It's more square footage than Dan Houser's big-bank purchase of Truman Capote's Brooklyn home but isn't quite as literally significant. You can take a gander at the Tramiel estate here.
