Mark Zuckerberg Sold His Massive San Francisco Home For $31 Million
Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg sold one of his San Francisco Bay Area homes for $31 million earlier this month. The off-market sale is the biggest residential real estate deal in the city so far in 2022, according to The Real Deal.
The four-bedroom, four-bathroom home of 7,368 square feet, is in San Francisco's Dolores Heights neighborhood, which borders on the famous Mission Dolores Park. Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, reportedly paid $10 million for it when they bought it in 2013. But the property became a nuisance for Zuckerberg's neighbors, who objected to the construction work that began on the home that year. Residents said that they experienced constant noise from the 50-person crew and that they couldn't park on their street for months.
Permits filed with the city at the time showed that the couple intended to invest millions of dollars worth of work, including renovations on the kitchen and bathrooms; adding a new office, media room, half-bathroom, mudroom, laundry room, wine room, and wet bar; putting additions on the rear and side of the home; and adding a new, basement-level garage that included a turntable for the cars so they could get out faster.
While the home now has a new owner — according to The Real Deal, the house was sold to a Delaware-based LLC — Zuckerberg still owns property in the Bay Area. In 2011, he bought a five-bedroom home in Palo Alto, then added the four homes surrounding it to create a private compound. He also owns two adjacent waterfront estates on Lake Tahoe, a popular vacation destination for Bay Area residents.
But it seems like Zuckerberg is spending more and more time at his nearly 1,500-acre estate in Kauai, Hawaii, where he's often spotted surfing and foiling. Zuckerberg began buying property on Kauai's north shore in 2014. Zuckerberg and Chan have donated millions to local organizations, but their presence on the island has also been, at times, controversial.
