Apple's senior VP of internet software and services, Eddy Cue, has reportedly put his vacation home in Truckee, Calif. on sale for $11.9 million.

Cue originally bought the land the house is on in 2010 for $1.2 million, Realtor.com said. It's unclear how much the executive spent during construction, which only finished in 2015, but the home spans some 7,900 square feet using stone, wood, and large glass panes.

The interior is as modern-looking as the outside, with ample room for guests whether eating, lounging, or sleeping. The master bedroom alone is larger than many studio apartments.

The home is about 30 minutes or less from Lake Tahoe, a popular getaway destination, especially for the rich. Surrounding Cue's property is Martis Camp, a development where people can golf and ski all year -- it even has a private chairlift, taking residents to the Northstar California ski resort. Other luxuries include facilities like a spa and fitness center.

Cue is a prominent figure at Apple, likely behind only Tim Cook and Jonathan Ive in name recognition. This is because he oversees many of the company's most prominent online platforms, including Apple Music, iTunes, Apple Pay, and iCloud.

It's not clear why Cue is selling the Truckee property, especially since services revenue was up 31 percent year-over-year in the March quarter to $9.19 billion. It could be that he isn't (or won't be) making much use of it, or simply wants to find a better spot.

    Anyone else notice the old-school touch wheel iPod on the night stand next to the lamp?

    Cue the Music. Might be a good tombstone inscription for him.

    Eddy Cue doesn't really seem to me like much of an outdoor activities type of guy, which is pretty much all there is to do in the Lake Tahoe area. Most of the time that I see him on stage he looks hung over.

    I love a bunch of anonymous nobodies on a rumors site somehow believe they personally know how Cue is performing at the job (better than Tim Cook, his actually daily boss does) and likes to do in his free time. The hubris is amazing.

    Relax. No one's opinion here really makes a difference. That includes yours and mine.

    The best part of these photos is imagining the master of the house wandering through the rooms in his skivies. Perhaps wearing slippers.

    But seriously, the guy deserves to be happy.

    Wants a better spot? Huh? 

    How 'bout: Ten times return on investment, minus construction costs? He bought during the Recession, built during the rebound, is selling into a boom. Lotta one-percenters might enjoy those digs, in that location.

    Wow, that's a beautiful house. A lot of places these days with $10m+ price tags, you look at it, and think "Meh, not really worth that much." But that place looks like it is worth that much.
