Tesla CEO and SpaceX founder Elon Musk listed a pair of residences on the Bel-Air Country Club this month. Interestingly, he’s going agent-free on this little business excursion; both Zillow listings are ‘for sale by owner’. The listings come only a few days after Musk Tweeted his intention to sell off his possessions.
The two properties do not share a property line, but they are across the street from one another. They are also quite different in spirit. One is a slightly ramshackle—and charmingly so—ranch-style of slightly less than 2,800 square feet that was at one time hearth and home to Gene Wilder. The three-and-three dates to the early 1950s, and features red brick accents, sliding glass doors, and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the fairway and the city beyond. It is priced at a little less than $10 million. Musk paid $6.75 million for the investment property back in 2013, and lived in it for a short period before converting it into a school for his children.
The second property is another order of business, and more in keeping with the neighborhood. In that way, it’s a lot bigger, a lot flashier, far more pretentious, and much less interesting. It joined Musk’s portfolio about ten months earlier than the smaller home, and at three times the cost: public records have the sale at $17 million. It sports Chateau architecture, and interior details include ceilings of at least 12’, crown moldings and dentils, crystal chandeliers a-plenty, and a series of warm and cool tones that give it an expressive spirit. It’s a big one—20,248 square feet—with seven bedrooms, eight baths, and abundant room for entertaining. It’s priced accordingly, at over $30 million.
The properties are two of the four Musk purchased in the same corner Bel-Air.
