Elon Musk Lists Futuristic California Home for $4.5 Million
Completed in 1959, the kidney-shaped house is located in L.A.’s ritzy Brentwood neighborhood
Elon Musk, the billionaire cofounder of Tesla and SpaceX, has listed his midcentury-modern home in California for $4.5 million.
Musk, who recently announced that he will help bring a group of artists to space, and his ex-wife, Tallulah Riley, purchased the four-bedroom property for $3.69 million in 2014. Completed in 1959, the 3,000-square-foot kidney-shaped house sits on a triangular lot in the ritzy Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles. Floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors frame the back of the house, maximizing natural light.
Being the home of a tech mogul, the house is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, including curtains, a sound system, security system, and lighting that can all be controlled via mobile device. The residence also features eco-friendly elements like a tankless hot-water system, dual-zone climate control, and drought-resistant irrigation.
Since 2012, Musk has reportedly spent more than $70 million buying five houses in nearby Bel-Air. He is said to have spent $48 million for four properties perched above the Bel-Air Country Club and an additional $24.2 million on ultra-contemporary spec house located close by.
The home is listed with luxury brokerage Hilton & Hyland.
