Elon Musk is (lastly) promoting his mansion south of San Francisco

But one of Elon Musk’s homes – a historic mansion south of San Francisco that the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX calls a “special place” – wasn’t sold when Musk dumped the rest of his $ 100 million real estate portfolio (despite being listed was). on Zillow for a while.)

In the early hours of Monday morning, Musk announced on Twitter (via a reply to an earlier tweet from him) that he had actually decided to “sell my last house. I just have to live with a large family that will live there . It’s a special place. “

Decided to sell my last remaining house. Just have to go to a large family that will live there. It’s a special place.

The “special” home in the Bay Area is likely this historic 100 year old mansion in Hillsborough on the San Francisco Peninsula.

The 16,000 square meter mansion sits on 47 acres of lawns, gardens and private walking trails.

There are 10 bedrooms and nine and a half bathrooms inside, in addition to a ballroom, large formal banquet room, flower arrangement room, and library. Outside there is a detached 3 car garage, an 8 car carport and a truck stop.

In May 2020, we reported that Musk had listed the property on Zillow, although records show the listing was removed in November 2020. The property was re-listed for $ 37.5 million per Zillow yesterday, which coincided with Musk’s tweet. (The previous list price was $ 35 million, down $ 2.5 million. Records show the house was bought for $ 23.4 million in 2017.)

One of the homes Musk sold last year was a Los Angeles mansion previously owned by iconic comic book actor Gene Wilder, whom Musk made a special request to when they sold it. “Only one condition for the sale: I own Gene Wilder’s old house. It can’t be torn down or lose its soul, ”Musk tweeted in May 2020. That house was eventually sold to Wilder’s nephew for $ 7 million.

Musk is currently believed to be living in a property in Boca Chica, Texas that was rented from his aerospace company SpaceX.

In a recent interview with Mathias Döpfner, Musk said that one of his motivations for selling his property is to prove to people that he is serious about bringing people to Mars.

“I’m just trying to make it clear that I’m serious,” said Musk. “And it’s not about personal consumption. Because people attack me and say, oh, he has all these possessions. He has all these houses. Okay, now I don’t have them.”

According to Forbes, Musk is currently worth around $ 154 billion.
