Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg sells his San Francisco home for $31 million
For $31 million, Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg sold his San Francisco home, which is more than three times the price he paid for it just two years ago.
As reported, it was San Francisco’s most expensive house sale of the year. In November 2012, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg purchased the property for for $10 million. Near Dolores Park, in Liberty Hill, sits this sprawling, over 7,000-square-foot residence. In 1928, the home was built and is on a quarter-acre plot.
The CEO of Meta Platforms is said to have purchased the residence months after Facebook went public. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, invested millions in renovating their home in 2013, adding a laundry room, wine cellar, wet bar, and greenhouse. Microsoft CEO Bill Gates is also said to own properties in Silicon Valley, Lake Tahoe, and Hawaii.
An further allegation by Dailymail.com claims that substantial renovations have been made to the original $10 million mansion, which was previously reported as having over 7,400 square feet of space. Numerous complaints regarding construction and ‘illegally’ parked cars have been made to Zuckerberg over the years.
Zuck’s ‘five-house compound’ in Silicon Valley is rumoured to be worth $37 million, according to the latest reports. After purchasing the four homes surrounding his original $7 million Palo Alto home in 2011, he has transformed it into a sprawling estate.
