Inside the House of Gadget Man

Richard  Thalheimer, founder of Sharper Image, has put his 7,750-square-foot home with six bedrooms and 6½ baths up for sale. Located in San Francisco, neighbors include Gordon Getty and Larry Ellison.

Sales price: $15 million. WSJ has the slideshow, here.


  1. For some reason I expected to see that life size statue of Predator somewhere.

  2. Honestly, I'm a little disappointed. Very vanilla, could have been owned by anyone with tons of money. Though it is a good demonstration of how technology rolls downhill to the rest of us. Those giant (expensive) touchscreens are being replaced in the market by ipads interfacing with in-home connected devices. The market is growing and the expense is coming way down. Look at Dropcam if you want to see a good example of idiot proof home video monitoring.
