If you have $100 million to spare, the right property just hit the market.

An 8-acre property in Atherton that for years has been the summer estate of the Fisher family, founders of the Gap retail and clothing chain, is now on offer through Compass Real Estate.

The residence at 170 Atherton Ave. includes two homes and a sculpture garden in the most expensive ZIP code in the country: 94027.

“This listing is the largest real estate offering since 2011 when a 12-acre property on Atherton Avenue sold,” Compass listing agent Mary Gullixson said in a statement. “Properties like these are generational opportunities to own in the most desirable location of the Bay Area.”

The Fisher family purchased the estate in 1975, after Donald and Doris Fisher founded the Gap in 1969. The store, created to allow people an easier way to purchase jeans, grew to became one of the nation’s more prominent clothing retailers, one that often intersected with the zeitgeist of the times. Don Fisher passed away in 2009.

The main home includes five bedrooms and four bathrooms on a single level and features a pool, with a pool house, and a tennis court. Large works of sculpture sit among the estate, placed alongside and near pathways and green spaces.
