Serial entrepreneur Elon Musk listed two astonishing properties at the beginning of this month, and he isn't done yet. He's just listed five new properties in California. The innovator turned to Twitter to announce his intent to sell "all" of his personal belongings, and advertise his exquisite homes to potential buyers (and the media). Four residences are in the same neighborhood, therefore, Musk has listed them as a bundle, totaling $62.5M, the remaining home is located in Silicon Valley, and has an asking price of $35M.
The combined listing includes 10947 Chalon Rd, 954 Somera Rd, 955 Somera Rd, and 958 Somera Rd. Two of these properties are adjacent to each other, and the others are nearby. The listing notes that the homes were designed to show the best views from the city, landscape, and the ocean. A deep pocket buyer might find interest in these properties meant to showcase the City of Angels.
954 Somera Rd, the largest and newest home of the bunch, with six beds and seven baths, is over 9,300 sq ft of living space set on a 1.57-acre lot. 955 Somera Rd, the bungalow next door, offers nearly 3,000 sq ft of living space, has four bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, and a two-car garage.
Musk's two-story, single-family home was built in 1964. 958 Somera Rd includes four bedrooms, and three and a half bathrooms, located steps away from those last two properties. Finally, 10947 Chalon Rd, which is the residence that is located farther away, is over 7,000 sq ft of living space that includes four bedrooms, six bathrooms, and parking for up to eight cars, besides the driveway. Each of the four properties has its own special details that can catch a clever buyer's eye.
The fifth property is in Silicon Valley. 16,000 sq ft set on a more than 47-acres. The estate is one of the most spacious properties on the San Francisco Peninsula. The mansion encases 10 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, and also features a spacious detached garage. Amenities include hiking trails, the bay, the canyon, and reservoir views. The Spanish-style home also has a plus: there's a ballroom, a banquet dining room, and a professional kitchen.
Musk is expected to make a profit from all seven sales. Although the current situation may seem discouraging for sellers, many buyers are taking advantage of the sudden lockdown to search for proper investments in the market. Some markets are even seeing bidding wars between buyers. Boston has seen the most; almost two out of every three sales experienced bidding wars. With any luck, Musk will get to see the same happen on his properties. It's not every day you get the chance to live in the home of the man starting us off populating the stars. Maybe this property purge is so he can move to Mars without any ties. Well, you heard it here first. Check out the properties below, and if he starts building on the red planet we'll let you know!
