Everybody knows by now that Elon Musk is on his way to becoming the richest person on earth. By now, Elon is probably already the most famous billionaire thanks to his antics on Twitter. From controversies surrounding his tweets about cryptocurrency to everything that is about Tesla. It’s like Elon Musk’s Twitter account is never quiet.
Now, another thing that many people know is what Elon said about his house. Once upon a time, Elon promised that he will never own a house. Even boasted about how he lived in a container house for many years. But, we now found out that Elon has sold for of his Bel Air houses for a hefty amount of money. And he still owns a 16,000 square foot mansion in San Fransisco.
The mansion is apparently still his, although his ex-girlfriend and the mother of his son, Grimes, wanted at least one home. People are monitoring this mansion apparently. Especially after Elon said on Twitter that he is trying to sell almost all his physical possessions. So now we know that the mansion has been on and off the market, with many potential buyers coming and going.
And the big news has finally come, someone is about to buy Elon’s mansion for about $32 million. The crazy price of this mansion is also cheaper than a year ago, which reached $35 million. Despite the price cut, Elon still got a huge profit from this, since he bought the mansion for $23.3 million in 2017.
More information about the amazing mansion
According to the latest report, Elon Musk has been making an effort to fulfill his promise of not owning a single house. He even went further by saying that he is making an effort to sell almost all his physical possessions on Twitter. The proof of his effort can be seen when he sold all four of his houses in Bel Air. Now, he is trying to sell his mansion in San Francisco. And it seems like a buyer is on the way.
Elon Musk listed his 16,000 square foot mansion for $35 million last year. A huge price for a mansion, which he initially bought for $23.3 million last year. The price got cut by $2 million this year, which is still a huge profit for Elon. It makes sense since the mansion has been on and off the market with no buyer insight.
The mansion was built back in 1912 and was designed by an architecture firm, Bliss & Faville. It has been renovated several times to follow the latest trends in interior design, especially the grand ballroom, dining room, and kitchens.
Overall, the mansion is massive, which is expected at this price. It is sitting on a 47-acre lot and even has a retractable wall of library shelves. Other than that, it has wine and whiskey cellars in the basement, spacious rooms, and a special room for flower arranging.
Where does Elon Musk live now?
So now that the mansion is about to be sold, where does Elon Musk live? It is actually surprising that many people don’t even know where Elon lives. Especially considering that he is the most famous billionaire in the world. Also, here is the more surprising thing, the reason why many people don’t know about it, is because they still can’t believe what they are seeing or think that Elon was lying about something.
Back in June 2021, Elon said on Twitter that he is living in a $50 thousand house in Boca Chica/Starbase that he rents from SpaceX. Despite living much below his means, he also said that his house is kind of awesome. I think we can agree that the location of his rented house is awesome.
I think we can assume that Elon Musk is still living in his rented box in Boca Chica. And soon we are going to hear news about his mansion being bought. Who knows if Elon Musk is going to buy a new house or not in the future? But for now, we know that he doesn’t live in a mansion or big house. Instead, he lives in a small house that he rented from SpaceX.
