Another day, another Elon Musk self-listed property for sale.
This time around, the house in question is a 16,000 square-footer containing ten bedrooms and ten baths. It was built in 1916. More appealing than its history or style, perhaps, is the 47 acre lot it sits upon, which is itself located in a heavily wooded nook of Hillsborough, California, a bedroom community in the Bay area.
The house is designed in the villa style, and inspired by Palladian architecture. A grand arched entry, arched windows, and a constant symmetry define its exterior. Inside, it occasionally riffs on the opulence of the Italian renaissance, with gilt trim and soaring proportions. The lot presents the well-heeled buyer with the opportunity of owning a Silicon Valley estate with a massive privacy buffer.
The listing comes hot on the heels of the sextet of clustered properties in a prime corner of Bel Air that Mr. Musk listed earlier in the month, first a pair for $39.5 million, then a quartet for $62.5 million. The properties are being offered in a single transaction, presenting a powerhouse buyer with the option of picking up the foundation of a compound in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the country.
The newest property to be offered for sale by Musk is priced at $35 million, which brings the total asking price of all properties currently offered by the ambitious fellow to $137 million.
