Elon Musk has sold almost all of his $100 million of real estate, in an effort to divert his full attention to colonizing Mars. The Post reported that his final property in Hillsborough, California, near the San Francisco Bay area, which was listed for a colossal $37.5 million in June, is now off the market.
The billionaire who is estimated to be worth $193 billion from his many ventures, purchased the historic estate in 2017 for a whopping $23.4 million. It was taken off the market on September 11, records show.
In May 2020, Musk promised that he would sell almost all his assets. “I am selling almost all physical possessions. Will own no house,” he tweeted.
Situated on 47 acres, Musk described the last house as “a special place,” and requested that whoever would come to own it would have to have a big family. The Tesla CEO tweeted on June 14;
Five days earlier, he admitted to holding on to the place to use for events. Musk said;
“Yeah, sold my houses, except for 1 in Bay Area that’s rented out for events.
“Working on sustainable energy for Earth with Tesla & protecting future of consciousness by making life multiplanetary with SpaceX. Also, AI risk mitigation with Neuralink & fixing traffic with Boring.”
He had also said in June that he would not be going through any brokers, and instead, any potential buyers would have to get in direct touch with him.
The home spans 16,000 square feet and is made up of nine bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. The listing previously stated;
“Over 100-year-old mansion with unobstructed Bay views, pool, hiking trails, canyons & reservoir. Ballroom, banquet dining room and preserved but completely updated professional kitchen. Detached 3-car garage, 8-car carport, and tremendous motor court parking.”
Musk has already offloaded 12 other homes, including Gene Wilder’s estate which he sold to Wilder’s nephew last October.
