Nadella, who was appointed CEO in 2014, replaced Steve Ballmer. Nadella first joined the tech giant in 1992, then worked his way to the top. The 48-year-old, who was spotted at the State of the Union address on Tuesday night, thanks to his company's commitment to computer science education, seems to also be committed to upping his real estate game.
A handsome profit on the house
Indian-born Nadella could pocket some serious cash from the sale. He bought the home in 2000 for $1.38 million, according to the Times. It's now on the market for a hefty $3.49 million.
The residence is renovated
The four-bedroom, 4,050-square-foot space has a glass-and-steel structure, creating a modern, industrial look. The open floor plan and vaulted ceiling of the great room make for an airy and light-filled space.
An open loft could be a great office for the next CEO-in-training. The sleek kitchen opens to dining and living spaces. And the home's wall of windows showcases the verdant lawn, plus inspiring views of the Olympic Mountains, Lake Washington, and Seattle.
Where the tech execs are
While we have no idea where the tech leader is headed, we're guessing he's not exactly downsizing. The married father of three may be taking a note from his former billionaire boss, Bill Gates, and going full compound.
Or perhaps he's inspired by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, who recently snapped up yet another house on Mercer Island. Whatever the plan, we're guessing the promotion to CEO came with a nice raise, and it's time for Nadella to make a housing upgrade.
