Holmes’ partner, hotel heir William “Billy” Evans, listed one of the houses on the Green Gables property as his address on a traffic citation found from court records, CNBC reported. The outlet said it “independently confirmed” through a courthouse clerk that the couple have been staying in one of the homes along the 74-acre property.
The sprawling estate — which boasts seven houses, three swimming pools, a tennis court and a gargantuan Roman pool — went on the market or the first time ever in March and is currently listed for $135 million.
The property has been in the Fleishhacker family for five generations and was built primarily as a summer retreat, but was also used as an event space over the years. It’s co-listed by Compass realtor Brad Miller and his wife, Helen, and Zackary Wright of Christie’s International Real Estate. Neither Wright nor Brad Miller immediately responded to a request for additional information.
Kevin Downey, attorney for Holmes, also did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Holmes founded Theranos, the now-defunct health technology startup, when she was 19 and soon became the youngest self-made female billionaire in the U.S. The company pioneered a low-cost blood testing technology that claimed it would be able to detect medical conditions with only a small amount of blood from patients, but several investigations soon revealed the technology didn’t work.
In 2018, Holmes and Theranos’ former president, Ramesh “Sunny” Balwani — who was also Holmes’ ex-boyfriend — were indicted on two counts of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and 10 counts of wire fraud. Both have pleaded not guilty and are free on $500,000 bail. If convicted, they face up to 20 years in prison each.
