Musk’s reintroduction of the mansion in the Bay Area for just under $ 32 million comes just days after the mega-billionaire announced that Tesla will relocate its headquarters from Palo Alto, California to Austin, Texas.
“Just to be clear, we will continue to expand our operations in California,” said Musk, who is worth $ 227 billion, at a Tesla shareholder meeting last week. “So it’s not about Tesla leaving California.”
musk confirmed in December that he had moved to Texas and his listing of his only remaining California home could suggest that he has committed to operating out of Texas, even though his other companies, SpaceX and The Boring Company, are both still based in Hawthorne, California.
Musks $ 32 million, 47 acre property is south of San Francisco. Musk first put the 7-bedroom, 9.5-bathroom home up for sale in May 2020 for $ 35 million after he said he “will not own a house” and will sell “almost all physical possessions”. according to list records.
He then withdrew the listing earlier this November In June, it was listed again for $ 37.5 million and referred to as its “special place”.
“I’ve decided to sell my last house. Just have to go to a large family that will live there. It’s a special place, ”the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX wrote in a tweet at the time.
In either offer, Musk did not use a broker to help him with a deal. Instead, he urged potential buyers to contact him directly to discuss prices.
This time, however, Musk appears to be going through Mary and Brent Gullixson, a Compass brokerage team.
The Gullixsons did not immediately return The Post’s request for comment.
The home was listed at its new price of $ 32 million on October 11, according to Zillow’s listing records.
The 109-year-old home has bay views, a pool, hiking trails, canyons, and a 5-star kitchen with space for a personal chef, according to the listing.
Additional amenities include a ballroom, banquet dining room, and leather-walled library and fireplace, depending on the listing.
musk had 12 other houses that he unloaded in the past 18 months, including Gene Wilder’s estate, which he sold to Wilder’s nephew last October.
It was rumored that Musk lived in a 375-square-foot prefabricated house at the SpaceX launch site in Texas after he tweeted in June: “My primary residence is literally a $ 50,000 home in Boca Chica / Starbase that I rent from SpaceX. But it’s kind of great. “
The resumption occurs just a few weeks after Musk revealed to Page Six that he has now been “half-separated” from his long-time partner Grimes for three yearsafter the two led two different lives.
“We’re half apart, but we still love each other, see each other often, and have a great relationship,” said Musk.
“Mostly, my work at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to be mostly in Texas or overseas, and their work is mostly in LA.”
