The listing on Zillow, where the 16,251-square-foot Los Angeles home had been listed by owner for $30 million, was removed on June 12. Zillow listed the sale price as $1. However, The Wall Street Journal reported that Musk sold the property to William Ding, the billionaire CEO of Chinese tech firm NetEase, for $29 million.
The Bel Air estate includes seven bedrooms and 11 total bathrooms, according to the former listing. The remodeled home includes lots of space for entertaining, including a pool, fire pit, outdoor dining area and a two-room guest suite.
The luxurious home includes high ceilings, a two-story library, a theater and a wine cellar. The master suite includes dual bathrooms and closets.
Outside, the 1.67-acre property also includes a lighted tennis court and a fruit orchard.
It appears to have been a good investment for Musk. Property records show he paid $17 million for the home in 2012, and its most recent assessments valued the property at closer to $19 million.
The CEO of Tesla and SpaceX has listed three other homes for sale after his public pledge to sell his possessions. The four homes were listed together for $62.5 million.
One of those other properties is located across the street from the sold home. It’s the former home of actor Gene Wilder, and Musk tweeted that there would be a stipulation for whoever buys that particular property: they can’t tear it down and the home cannot lose “its soul.”
