Elon Musk selling final Earth home so he can "focus on Mars"
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has listed the last home he owns of his $100 million real estate portfolio, in a quest to “own no house” and focus solely on his mission to Mars.
It’s been no easy feat letting go of his beloved properties, however this San Francisco mansion has been a little harder to let go of for Musk.
Deemed his “special place,” the nine-bedder has proven to be a difficult property to shift.
After initially listing the home last year, it failed to receive any substantial offers so the 49-year-old took it off the market.
However, this week Musk announced he would be selling the 47-acre lot for an eye-watering $48.6 million (US$37.5 million).
“Decided to sell my last remaining house. Just needs to go to a large family who will live there. It’s a special place,” the Tesla and SpaceX CEO wrote.
Musk, who has an estimated net worth of $185 billion, initially purchased the home in 2017 for US$23.4 million.
The incredible Hillsborough retreat is over 100-years-old and has every feature possible including Bay views, a pool, hiking trails and mesmerising canyons.
Not only that, but the incredible mansion even features a ballroom, banquet dining room and a well-preserved but completely updated professional kitchen.
Musk vowed to get rid of his homes and belongings in order to devote his life “to Mars and Earth.”
“Don’t need the cash,” the eccentric billionaire tweeted in May 2020.
“Possession just weighs you down.”
