The Brief:

A California record for the highest-priced single-family house to ever sell was quietly set before the end of 2012 when a Woodside mansion sold for $117.5 million.The 9,000 square-foot house according to Forbes is the most expensive single-family residence to ever trade in the United States.

The seller of the magnificent estate was Tully Friedman, chief executive of Friedman, Fleischer and Lowe, a San Francisco-based private equity firm. The Los Angeles Times alleges Japan's second-richest man, Masayoshi Son, is the super secretive buyer.

The Allan Greenberg-designed house was built in 2005. The 836 sq m neoclassical-style house is typical of many other mega-mansions in the area.
