It’s been a busy week for the Tesla CEO, Elon Musk. After looking likely to receive a staggering $1.1 billion payout due to Tesla’s six-month long average value, the CEO then took to Twitter to launch an attack on health officials enforcing lockdown restrictions in the United States, comparing such regulations to fascism, and then went on a Twitter tirade in which he vowed to sell all his possessions. And, as of today, Musk also welcomed a new child with girlfriend, Grimes. You’d think that with a newborn on the hands, looking to sell a property (and all possessions for that matter) might not register as the most logical action. Remarkably however, Musk has doubled down on his words and listed his two California homes for sale.
The first is a 20,000-square-foot Bel Air mansion which Musk bought for a staggering $17 million USD. With ocean views, a two-storey library, theatre, championship tennis court, wine cellar, gym, pool, and fruit orchard, it’s safe to say that this mansion comes complete with anything you could possibly fancy having in a home. Isolation getting you down? Well, you won’t have that problem here.
And being Musk’s property, a man whose creative genius has gifted us such things like the Tesla Cybertruck, it’s only natural that the mansion also has a motor court with a five-car garage. It’s pretty incredible, the property, but if you thought Musk would part with it cheaply, think again. The man might be wanting to sell his possessions, but that doesn’t mean he’s going to do it cheaply. Instead, the property is listed for sale for a cool $30 million USD.
The second property of Musk’s that hit the market is his ranch home that was formerly owned by Gene Wilder. At 2,800-square-feet, the property has five bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and an oval pool with a private guest cottage. The home has been listed for $14.7 million, meaning that Musk is seeking a combined asking price of $61 million for the two properties.
As for whether Musk follows through with his grand plan of selling all his possessions, we’ll have to wait and see. But given the speed at which he placed this listing up for sale, perhaps it’s likely there might be a Musk giveaway happening soon.
