LOS ALTOS HILLS, CA (CBS) - The San Francisco Bay Area has broken another record - this time for being home to a $100 million mansion purchased by a wealthy Russian.

The mega-mansion is located in Los Altos Hills, CA, in the Silicon Valley.

Russian business tycoon Yuri Milner was the buyer. It is the most expensive single family home ever sold in the U.S.

The mansion's statistics are equally impressive: It sits on 18 acres, covering over 25,000 square feet.

It was built to resemble an 18th century French chateau.

It boasts five bedrooms, a ballroom, a wine cellar, gym, spa, tennis courts and an indoor and outdoor pool.
