…made me wonder: What’s the biggest residence in Shasta County? The biggest one now on the market?”

Fascinating question. Be sure to check out the article at the link. REALLY really big homes that are being built to house princely hedgefund managers and software moguls with mega-egos tend to be in the 50,000 sqft range. I don’t know of anything that large or luxurious that around here. Anyone else know of anything?

A few posts ago, we looked at the Top 10 most expensive homes around Redding, with only somewhat tongue-in-cheek hopes of enticing a new Facebook owner to look, or even their spinoffs, like newly enriched massage therapists or whatever. We did find this “pretty darn big house” on OBrien Mountain which qualifies for Marc’s “biggest one now on the market,” at 16,050 sqft. with 24 bedrooms and 25 bathrooms. Priced at $3.8M it hardly seems in the same league as the homes mentioned in the article.

As for the biggest one not for sale, a quick search of our MLS reveals an alarming number of real estate agents can’t count their zeros when entering square footage data. Not encouraging. Dozens of errors, but the only legitimate thing I found in there rivaling the Obrien home size was a Ranch Home in Hyampom of about 16,714 sqft, a 16/16 on 169 acres. Last offered for $1.995M in 2009.

We know of a few nice local homes that look rather palatial from Google Earth. Here are a few:

Provided I’m looking at the right house in tax records, this lovely home on the Sacramento River is about 10,712 sqft.

This home with a helipad in the Happy Valley area looks mighty nice. Not sure how big it is.

This home in Tierra Heights always seemed pretty big to me from the ground. If I have it right, records say it’s a 6,292 sqft 3/4 on 3.8 acres.

This one is for sale for $5.49M. The 5,600 sqft 5/5 house looks nice from the air, but also it sits on 717 acres, which affords one some privacy, shall we say.

This home in Redding sits at the end of a private street. If I have it right, tax records say it’s a 6,979 sqft 4/4. Nice setting.

This one in West Redding is for sale for $1.4M. We love this house. It’s a 6000 sqft 5/6.

This big home overlooking the river in Redding is pretty visible from much of the river trail. It’s a 6378 sqft 4/3, if I have it right.

Here’s another one quite visible from the river trail in Redding. Not sure how big.

Again, anyone else know of some truly large homes, worthy of a modern Prince?
