HOUSE OF THE DAY: Take A Walk Through Elon Musk's New $17 Million Bel Air Estate

Billionaire PayPal, SpaceX and Tesla founder Elon Musk is putting down roots in Bel Air, paying $17 million for an estate that he had previously been renting.

The 20,000-square-foot home was built in 1990 and recently remodeled, according to Curbed LA. It has seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, and was last listed for $19.95 million in April.

We think these listing photos from Redfin are a little dated, considering Musk has been living in the home for the past few years with his five young sons, and there are a lot of expensive looking trinkets laying around.

But even so, they give a cool glimpse into the life of one of the most successful entrepreneurs of our time.

Musk's estate overlooks the Bel Air Country Club.

It's in one of the wealthiest and most prestigious neighborhoods in the country.

It sits on 1.66 acres of land, plenty of space for a backyard, tennis court, and swimming pool.

Let's go inside. The home was built in 1990.

But it was renovated more recently.

Even so, some of the paint colours and moldings make it look pretty ancient.

There are a ton of spaces for entertaining.

Here's one room with a modern touch — we dig the decor here.

Another shot of the room.

The kitchen is expansive — a necessity when you have five sons.

So is the round kitchen table.

There's also some in-home entertainment: a private movie theatre.

This room has a cool chandelier.

The master suite is enormous.

Check out the marble tub. There are separate his- and hers-bathrooms in the master suite.

Spare beds?

The home has a separate kids' wing. We think this bedroom has probably had a makeover by now.

The in-home gym is nice, though we're not sure Musk has time to use it.

The pool is lovely.

So is the tennis court, which can be lit at night.
