Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins has programmed his home for a sale, placing the Los Gatos, CA, property on the market for $13.8 million.
Robbins, who was named CEO of Cisco Systems in 2015, bought this mansion in the hills above Silicon Valley in 2016 for $9.5 million.
Built in 2005 and “transformed in 2016,” the 14,000-square-foot estate features cutting-edge amenities and a stylish white palette.
The locale offers beautiful mountain views, and the 1.37-acre gated spread features level lawns, a vast entertainment terrace, pool and spa, and even a vineyard and vegetable garden. Forget Whole Foods, you can eat and drink off the land at this property.

The estate’s interiors are graced with Santa Rita stone walls and limestone or hand-hewn floors, as well as exposed wood beams on the ceilings.
There’s an open living/kitchen area, formal dining room, master suite with a spacious closet, home theater, gym, wine cellar, game room, and wet bar.
Robbins, a University of North Carolina alum with a degree in mathematics, spent two decades in management at Cisco before being named CEO. Cisco develops, manufactures, and sells networking hardware.
Though less well-known than other tech CEOs (we’re looking at you, Tim Cook), Robbins is “responsible for much of Cisco’s worldwide success in recent times,” according to Money Inc.
