Internet millionaire, Tom Gonzales, is selling his sprawling Lake Tahoe compound for $50 million. Besides the stellar views, the estate has one other key selling point: An underground garage that can house 30 cars.

Internet millionaire, Tom Gonzales, started putting together this compound of homes on Lake Tahoe in 1999.

Named the Sierra Star, the property consists of four luxury residences: the Main House, Lakeview House, Parkview House and Carriage House.

The four-plus acres are studded with tall ponderosa pines, aspens and maples and there's a majestic 90,000-gallon, man-made waterfall. On the lakeshore, is a sandy beach.

"In summertime it's heaven on earth," he said. "In winter, too, if you're a skier."

The entire compound can be purchased for just under $50 million. Or each of the four homes and a lakefront lot can be bought separately.
