Tesla founder Elon Musk might really be done with California.

The tech entrepreneur has listed his Hillsborough mansion for $35 million, as first reported by the San Jose Mercury News. The home is part of a larger listing of five of his Bay Area properties that could sell for a combined $97.5 million.

The historic 100-year-old, 16,000-square-foot mansion sits on 47 acres of land with lawns, gardens and private hiking trails.


There are 10 bedrooms and nine and a half bathrooms inside, in addition to a ballroom, a grand formal banquet room, a flower-arranging room and a library. Outside, there’s a detached 3-car garage, an 8-car carport and motor court parking.

Earlier this week, Musk announced he’d be on the Tesla assembly line at his Alameda factory that defied shelter in place orders to reopen Monday. The company later reached an agreement with the county that permitted production under new regulations to protect workers.

May has been a busy month for Musk, as he also welcomed the birth of his son on May 4 with his girlfriend, the musician Grimes.

Musk is often outspoken on Twitter and earlier this month said he was selling off most of his personal possessions. He said he would “own no house,” which looks to be the case since he also listed his four Los Angeles properties this week.

The home last sold in 2017 for $29.85 million — a stunning discount from its original list price of $100 million in 2013. (Then 75-year-old owner Christian de Guigne IV had hoped to sell as a life estate and remain in the home rent-free until his death, with new owners maintaining “household expenses average[ing] $450,000 a year.”)
