When you're the CEO of the #5 company on the Fortune 500 list, it's probably safe to say you can afford a pretty solid home base.

Just ask John Hammergren, CEO of McKesson Corporation, whose 9-acre, 23,000-square-foot compound is up for auction.

Hammergren is formerly the highest paid CEO in the US -- only formerly because he "voluntarily surrendered a sizeable chunk of his compensation amidst a broader flap about CEO pay," as reported by Curbed.

The estate is located in Orinda, California, which the listing notes is one of Forbes' top friendliest communities.

The 23,000 square feet of living space are spread amongst a main house, carriage house, pool house and oh, we almost forgot – a fully equipped sports complex.

We're not just talking home gym with a few cardio machines and some weight racks.

This sports complex boasts tennis courts, a yoga studio, spa, rock climbing wall, squash and racquetball courts. And if you're too lazy to walk back to the main house to freshen up, no worries – the place comes stocked with full locker rooms.

You have to check this place out to believe it:

The six-bedroom, seven-full-bathroom main house contains automated solar panels and a computer-controlled security system with 22 cameras to help you watch over ever square inch of the property.

The home was previously listed for a whopping $22.5M back in May but received no bite.

So what is one to do when you can't sell your $20M+ northern California compound?

Well, we wouldn't know, but in Hammergren's case, the solution seems to be simple: put it up for auction!

The auction is happening on October 27, but if you're thinking of attending just for the fun of it, you might want to make sure you have the funds – there's a $250K deposit required to enter the auction.

We can all dream, can't we?
