Elon Musk, billionaire founder of SpaceX, Tesla, and PayPal, leads a pretty amazing life.
In January 2013, he spent $US17 million on a 20,248-square-foot mansion in Los Angeles’ Bel Air neighbourhood. He and his five sons had lived in the house for three years, which Musk rented before he felt financially secure enough to buy.
The home, which has seven bedrooms, a giant screening room, pool, and tennis court, is what you would expect from a man worth $US8.6 billion.
In November of 2013, Musk paid $US6.75 million for a ranch home located across the street from the mansion. No word on whether he plans to demolish the small house to combine the two homes into an even bigger estate.
We could imagine the interiors have changed a bit -- Musk rented the house for three years before finally purchasing it at the beginning of 2013.
But the house still looked super posh when Bloomberg paid a visit in August 2013. Reporter Betty Liu notes the mink throw blanket on this couch.
Musk reportedly likes to play video games with his sons on the weekends. Here, he gives Liu a demonstration of first-person shooter game 'BioShock Infinite.'
