Are you an animal lover with a yearning to own your own dog park and mansion? Of course you are. Software executive and animal lover David Duffield understands and offers up this solution: his mansion, on sale for a cool $39 million.

Imagine you and Hot Dog walking up to this impressive Bay Area estate:

Then Hot Dog gives you a look that says, "Let's go to the tree house." 

Normally, you'd think, "Wait, a treehouse? That's impossible."

Not for David Duffield. His mansion is outfitted with a tree house where you and your pooch can stay up late reading scary stories:

In addition to looking gorgeous and possessing everything a mansion should have (namely, tree house), this property comes with a few key features that make it a true animal lover paradise:

  • A dog park
  • Two paw-washing stations (as if one wasn't enough)
  • A soundproof aviary
  • A dog spa with a bath and grooming area
  • A gigantic pool

An Animal Lover With A Cause

Duffield wins extra bonus points because proceeds of the mansion's sale will benefit Maddie's Fund, a nonprofit animal welfare group. Maddie's Fund was started by Duffield and his wife, Cheryl, in memory of their Miniature Schnauzer, Maddie.

The Duffields have contributed more than $300 million for the nonprofit, which offers grants to no-kill animal shelters. So, even if you can't drop $39 mill on a mansion in the Bay Area, you can still check out Maddie's Fund — and the MaddieCam, a live stream from different shelters in the nonprofit's network!

But in the meantime — seriously, check out this home theater where you and Hot Dog can watch The Secret Life Of Pets:
