Russian Billionaire Yuri Milner Breaks Record with $100M Manse
You may have heard of the Russian billionaire in the context of tech powerhouses Facebook, Zynga and Groupon – all of which he has invested significant capital in. Milner's first and most notorious investment through his Moscow-based Digital Sky Technologies (DST) was a $200 million check to Facebook in 2009. Today, that investment is valued at $10 billion, according to the Wall Street Journal's Venture Capital Dispatch.
The French chateau-style estate includes five bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a home theater, wine cellar, spa and gym, tennis court, car wash, swimming pool and formal gardens. (See photos below.)
For the time being, Milner's primary residence is in Moscow --yes, this is the magnate's second home-- where he lives with his wife and two daughters.
At present, DST Global owns 10 percent, or roughly $5 billion of Facebook shares. Depending on how Groupon makes out, Milner could soon be breaking more records in Silicon Valley.
