The South African-born billionaire, Elon Musk just sold his “last remaining house” after it was listed for $32 million.
ELON MUSK SELLS LAST HOUSE TO FUND MARS ‘PROPERTY MARKET’
The 16 000-square-foot mansion in Hillsborough, California went into contract for an unknown amount, according to the Multiple Listing Service. No public information about the price or the buyer was available, as the sale has yet to close.
According to Mansion Global, Elon first announced he was selling the European-style residence in a June 2021 tweet saying he’d “decided to sell my last remaining house. Just needs to go to a large family who will live there.”
Elon initially said that he is selling the house as he wants to fund a colony on Mars.
A HISTORIC MANSION
The house is said to be “historic” and is one of the largest parcels in the area – with views of the San Francisco Bay and city skyline.
It was built in 1912 by a French nobleman, Count Christian de Guigné, who came to California and married Mary Katherine Parrott. De Guigné later started Stauffer Chemical Company and Leslie Salt, which distributed the mineral around the Bay Area.
The residence features seven bedrooms and nine and a half bathrooms, according to the listing. It features a grand living room, a library with leather walls and a fireplace, a gourmet kitchen with an area for a personal chef and dining and music rooms that can be combined into one large entertaining area.
The landscaped grounds boast a reservoir, a pool and pavilion, hiking trails, a three-car garage and an eight-car carport.
At the moment, Elon’s primary home is an accommodation he has rented from SpaceX in Boca Chica town, now known as the Starbase area, in Texas for nearly $50 000.
