Elon Musk takes his 'last remaining' house off the market
Elon Musk is putting his vow to sell all "physical possessions" on hold. In June, the billionaire Tesla CEO said he had gotten rid of all his houses except for one in the California Bay Area, which he considers a "special place." But that property has now been taken off the market, reports say. Here's more on this.
Musk had listed the house in June for $37 million
Musk had listed the house for sale on June 13 for $37.5 million, according to the property listing website Zillow. However, the post was taken down on September 11, as reported by the New York Post. The SpaceX boss had bought the property from Christian de Guigne IV in 2017 for over $23 million, whose aristocratic family owned the house for over a century.
House has 16,000 square feet of interior space
According to the listing, the house sits on 47 acres in Hillsborough, California and has 16,000 square feet of interior space. It has six bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, an 11-car garage, a ballroom, and access to hiking trails. "Over 100-year-old mansion with unobstructed Bay views, pool, hiking trails, canyons & reservoir...Truly a landmark property!" the post on Zillow read.
Musk wanted to sell the property to a big family
Musk had wanted to sell the said property to a big family. "Decided to sell my last remaining house. Just needs to go to a large family who will live there. It's a special place," he had earlier tweeted.
