Elon Musk is Tesla’s CEO and founder of SpaceX, the entrepreneur owns several properties in sunny California, and is now listings a couple of residences after tweeting the exciting news, two of his Bel-Air mansions are for sale for a price tag of $30M and $9.5M.
The seven-bedroom and five-bedroom properties are across the street from one another. Although they are close in distance they have very different features that make one of them three times more costly than the other.
10911 Chalon Road is a large property with over 16,000 sqft, built-in 1999, and set on a 1.67-acre lot. The single-family home is a more luxurious residence with high ceilings and extraordinary finishes. It features eleven bathrooms, a large master suite, a two-story library, a home theater, a tennis court, a wine cellar a pool, and a gym, among other fine entertaining rooms and spaces. Thus, it is way much expensive than the following -also amazing- property.
10930 Chalon Road is over 2,700 sqft set on a 0.78-acre lot. The single-family home was built in 1951 and has been appropriately updated preserving its unique ranch-style. The property features five bathrooms, a private guest cottage, an oval pool, and amazing views to the stream, vegetation, the city, and white sand traps of the Bel-Air Country Club Golf Course. A fun fact about this gorgeous home is that it previously belong to Gene Wilder, who played Willy Wonka in the famous film “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” from 1971.
This Minecraft-esque, white brick contemporary seems a tongue-in-cheek nod to a few things, and we love the borderline parody.
The design was crafted from the clients wishes, with some slight alterations. They wanted a cube sitting in a vast open landscape. The architects at 1100 Architect put their spin on it: two cubes. Two cubes? In a field? Groundbreaking.
We do actually love this though. Near perfect right angles and flat facades, they stand out in the perfectly imperfect environment that is nature– even if it is meticulously landscaped. If the owners decide to keep up with the times and let a more natural, slightly unkempt garden emerge, it’ll emphasize that modern aesthetic that much more.
The interior’s steel-frame structure opened the door for something you don’t get to see often. The open floor plan is unhindered by those blighting support columns you always see in the middle of wide-open interiors. There is even a roof terrace that utilizes the whole of the space perfectly.
This house was specifically designed to last a century without any real problems. To paraphrase, it was designed to last for the full cycle of a family. Although, our life expectancy is on the rise, and technology is evolving at an exponential rate, so we’ll call it as the architects did…
Earlier this month, John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s personal resort from the 1980’s finally came back on the market. The Wall Street Journal reports that the almost 11,000 sq ft home, sitting on 1.5 acres down in Palm Beach, is listed for north of $47M.
Crafted by architect Addison Mizner, “El Solano” last passed hands for around $23M four years ago. Why, then, the massive price increase?
Well, the estate’s history may justify the current owner’s price point. Aside from Mizner’s touch, the interior seems inspired by a world traveler with an eye for details. You can find inspiration drawn from all around the world, especially Asian and European cultures.
Columns from Greece, baroque and rococo moldings, Gothic chandeliers, a pool and tennis court from wherever you want– it’s beautiful regardless, and a parcel of land across the street for beach access. One of the many bathrooms feels like stepping into a feudal emperor’s personal washroom. There’s a living room with soaring ceilings that looks like it was designed by a French merchant who started out by conducting all of their business in Moroccan markets before elevating to dimly-lit society parties. Also worth mentioning is there are patios and terraces enough to show clear Arabian and European inspiration.
Its evident to all; at El Solano’s heart, it is designed for someone with a thirst for adventure– someone who can feels most at home while away from home. “The Eastern Wind” is most certainly an appropriate title. So check out the photos below, and, like Santiago, let yourself get blown away.
Serial entrepreneur Elon Musk listed two astonishing properties at the beginning of this month, and he isn’t done yet. He’s just listed five new properties in California. The innovator turned to Twitter to announce his intent to sell “all” of his personal belongings, and advertise his exquisite homes to potential buyers (and the media). Four residences are in the same neighborhood, therefore, Musk has listed them as a bundle, totaling $62.5M, the remaining home is located in Silicon Valley, and has an asking price of $35M.
The combined listing includes 10947 Chalon Rd, 954 Somera Rd, 955 Somera Rd, and 958 Somera Rd. Two of these properties are adjacent to each other, and the others are nearby. The listing notes that the homes were designed to show the best views from the city, landscape, and the ocean. A deep pocket buyer might find interest in these properties meant to showcase the City of Angels.
954 Somera Rd, the largest and newest home of the bunch, with six beds and seven baths, is over 9,300 sq ft of living space set on a 1.57-acre lot. 955 Somera Rd, the bungalow next door, offers nearly 3,000 sq ft of living space, has four bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, and a two-car garage.
Musk’s two-story, single-family home was built in 1964. 958 Somera Rd includes four bedrooms, and three and a half bathrooms, located steps away from those last two properties. Finally, 10947 Chalon Rd, which is the residence that is located farther away, is over 7,000 sq ft of living space that includes four bedrooms, six bathrooms, and parking for up to eight cars, besides the driveway. Each of the four properties has its own special details that can catch a clever buyer’s eye.
The fifth property is in Silicon Valley. 16,000 sq ft set on a more than 47-acres. The estate is one of the most spacious properties on the San Francisco Peninsula. The mansion encases 10 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, and also features a spacious detached garage. Amenities include hiking trails, the bay, the canyon, and reservoir views. The Spanish-style home also has a plus: there’s a ballroom, a banquet dining room, and a professional kitchen.
Musk is expected to make a profit from all seven sales. Although the current situation may seem discouraging for sellers, many buyers are taking advantage of the sudden lockdown to search for proper investments in the market. Some markets are even seeing bidding wars between buyers. Boston has seen the most; almost two out of every three sales experienced bidding wars. With any luck, Musk will get to see the same happen on his properties. It’s not every day you get the chance to live in the home of the man starting us off populating the stars. Maybe this property purge is so he can move to Mars without any ties. Well, you heard it here first. Check out the properties below, and if he starts building on the red planet we’ll let you know!
“Wheel of Fortune” hostess Vanna White has recently put one of her Los Angeles property up for rent. The lease to this modern estate is fixed to $20,000 per month. Sherman Oaks is a popular residential neighborhood filled with plenty of entertainment sites, restaurants, and bars, besides having several Hollywood celebrities as members of the community.
White acquired the residence back in 2013 and performed a revision and upgrade to the mid-century home. The contemporary-style home has now four bedrooms and four bathrooms, featuring an open-plan space, fine finishes, and panoramic city and canyon views.
At the entrance, tenants can find a private courtyard and the main door. The first floor offers three bedrooms, a formal living and dining room, a modern kitchen with high-level appliances, and glass walls that welcome the outdoors into the indoor living space. The master suite occupies the entire second floor and encompasses the master bathroom that includes a stylish shower with glass doors, a tub, dual vanity, and walk-in closets for her and him.
The outdoors are designed for relaxing and entertaining since they have a custom-built fire pit, sitting and dining areas, a grill, and an infinity pool with a jacuzzi.
In addition, all rooms include custom-built high-level furnishes that complete the luxury lifestyle one needs.
Sylvester Stallone recently listed his getaway home in California for a short $3.35M. Stallone’s villa can knock out a buyer with incomparable style and attention to detail, making this one-of-a-kind mansion a potential buyer’s dream come true. Its also delivering quite the punch to the actor’s banking account, however, since he purchased the residence back in 2010 for $4.5M, which mean’s he’s losing $1.15M.
The over 4,885 sq ft of living space encases four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms, plus, a great room, lovely patios, a wine room, a pool and spa, a built-in fire pit, and several terraces to enjoy the delightful views.
At the entrance, guests are greeted by the wooden double doors that open to a foyer with vaulted ceilings. This leads to the formal living room, which is both spacious and elegant, featuring a stone fireplace and double-height ceilings. The home also features a large kitchen with a wood-and-stone island and several dining areas. Upstairs has a suite with a hidden flat-screen TV at the foot of the bed, and the room also offers a private terrace and a cozy yet stylish fireplace. The luxurious master bathroom includes a two-sink vanity and a modern tub. Downstairs, we find a dining room that leads right out to the back terrace. Rambo’s home has interior details that were designed for admiration, such as the arched entryways, exposed beam ceilings, and imported tile.
The residence was emptied for showing purposes, however, you’ll still find a collectible poster of the actor from “Rambo”, and an interesting painting with it’s own story to tell.

Red Sox legend, David “Big Papi” Ortiz, cut down the selling price of his residence in Weston, MA by almost a million dollars from the listing price of $6.3M last year, to the new $5.5M price point.
The mansion is on Driftwood Lane, and clocks in at over 7,700 sq ft of living space on a 2.15-acre lot. The gated, single-family home features six bedrooms, six full bathrooms, a fenced yard, and a spacious horseshoe driveway.
At the entrance, guests find an elegant circular staircase, a formal living room with a stone fireplace, and a private office/studio on the ground floor. It’s also where you’ll find the formal dining room and the kitchen which features a built-in breakfast area, a massive island, custom made walk-in pantry, and an extra sub-zero refrigerator.
On the second floor, you can enjoy a master suite that includes a sitting room, custom closets, and a master bath with a tub designed for relaxation. Red Sox fans can even enjoy a custom space with a special wall mural; the Fenway scoreboard.
The house even features a room crafted with materials from, you guessed it, Fenway Park; a detail any real Sox fans will find hard to overlook. Other amenities include a home theater that opens into the bar, a wine cellar, a playroom for the kids, and a gym.
The backyard is potentially even more fun than the sport inspiring the homes design. The lucky owner, and their luckier friends, can swim in the in-ground pool, bask in the hot tub, or enjoy BBQ (without having to do those cookout table legs) on the oversized patio. The backyard itself is big enough to host a Corleone wedding, or play a full fledged baseball game. The detached heated garage only has three spaces, but guests can pack the horseshoe driveway just fine. That gate might even ensure no FBI agents come around recording VINs and plates.
The location is excellent to boot; only 15 miles west from downtown Boston! Weston is known for its open space, meadows, and woods, therefore, you get the best of both worlds.
Big Papi is currently serving as an MLB studio analyst for Fox Sports.
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are letting go of their Beverly Hills Mansion for an asking price of nearly $14M. The Hollywood power couple acquired the property back in 2014 for over $10M, making this closing a potentially sweet deal.

The interior of the house showcases elegant finishes and high-level appliances while staying cozy enough to feel like home. The living space offers custom millwork, plank oak floors, marble fireplaces, french doors, and exquisite tiling.
The residence offers a formal dining room and living room, as well as a private office, a wet bar, and a large kitchen with modern and luxurious appliances, on the first floor. The master suite includes a seating area by the window that overlooks the outdoors, a private bathroom with a tub, and dual walk-in closets.
In addition, the 1999 construction covered everything to optimize the property not only for living but entertaining. It includes a gym, a wine cellar, a sauna, a pool, a guest room, lovely patios, and gardens.
Kutcher and Kunis called this place home for six years, and they’re finally willing to pass the torch for a mere $13,995,000.

Diana Jenkins is a successful entrepreneur, philanthropist, and active member within Malibu’s “society.” She is now listing her cliffside estate with a price tag clocking in at $125M.
Jenkins has owned the 3,827 sq. ft. property for fifteen years, having acquired it for $21M in 2005. This private residence sits on a 2.98-acre lot in Paradise Cove, one of the most exclusive beaches in the city, next to WhatsApp’s former CEO Jan Koum’s $100M compound.
