Tech business mogul and centibillionaire Elon Musk just listed his 47-acre San Francisco Bay Area estate for $37.5 million.
A few months ago, Musk announced on Twitter that he’d be selling off his entire real-estate property portfolio in order to focus on his mission to Mars. Until now, he held onto this “special home” that lies midway between Silicon Valley and San Francisco in Hillsborough.
The nine-bedroom, nine-and-a-half-bathroom villa is a modern-day castle, clearly a unique gem on the market in any region. The 100-year-old mansion features hardwood floors, unobstructed Bay views, multiple hiking trails, a relaxing pool, canyons and even a reservoir.
Just eight miles to the SFO airport and private jet center, the estate boasts its own eight-car carport and expansive motor court parking, as well as a detached three-car garage.
Nature is the real show-stopper, though. The massive estate is lush with manicured greenery and vibrant vegetation. A custom-made pond sits right in front of the home with a perfectly-kept garden to complement the pristine reflection, and you could truly get lost wandering the expansive property.
Decided to sell my last remaining house. Just needs to go to a large family who will live there. It’s a special place.
Oval-arched, French style windows complement the European style of the mansion, which actually dates to 1916 when it was built by Count Christian de Guigné, a French nobleman. The landmark property even includes a ballroom and banquet dining room.
The mansion had been on the market since 2013 and was originally listed at $100 million. According to Mansion Global, Musk purchased the estate in 2017 for a fraction of the price, at $23.4 million through Gatsby LLC.
The listing doesn’t include a broker, and interested parties are asked to contact the owner directly–although, Mansion Global reveals that “calls to the phone number provided went directly to an answering service.”
Musk famously held the title of richest person in the world earlier this year, though he currently ranks third behind Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and French billionaire Bernard Arnault, the latter of which took the top spot in May. Who will buy the Tesla founder’s last remaining homestead on Earth?
