Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Elon Musk has spent $100 million on 7 lavish houses, including one with a ballroom and flower-arranging room”. Below is an excerpt from the article.
The Wall Street Journal reports that Tesla CEO and billionaire Elon Musk and companies affiliated with him have spent a rough total of $100 million on six houses since 2012.
Six of the houses are situated a stone's throw from each other in Bel-Air, California. Musk also owns a large estate near Tesla's headquarters in Northern California.
The estate in Northern California houses a 100-year-old mansion worth $27.2 million. Before Musk bought it it had been in the same family for 150 years. It comes complete with ball-room, flower-arranging room, a staff wing, and a pavilion bedecked in 18th-century Chinese wallpaper.
Aerial shots in the Journal show the house nestled among the trees, with manicured gardens and a large front driveway.
Musk is currently fighting a defamation case in the US against British cave diver Vernon Unsworth, who Musk dubbed "pedo guy" after Unsworth criticised his idea to send a mini submarine to rescue a Thai boys' soccer team trapped in a flooded cave system.
