Bill Gates likes to spend his money frugally and is well-known for his countless charitable donations. However, when it came to his house, the founder of Microsoft decided to splurge for once.

Here are 12 rare photos from inside this exquisite home.
In a high-stress world of business, Gates made sure that his home offered relaxation and tranquility. Here, you see a massive aquarium with a living-room style setting that offers a beautiful view into the world of rare marine animals.

Typically one of the messiest rooms in any home is the dust room just off of the porch. This dust room, however proves to be an exception to the rule. Exposed wood beam ceilings and a unique stone grey fireplace make this a stunning room to enjoy even the rainiest of days. We especially love the wood table and natural color palette.
