Billionaire Mark Zuckerberg recently expanded his real estate portfolio and summer vacation options.
The Facebook CEO dropped more than $59 million on two adjacent Lake Tahoe properties last winter, reported Katherine Clarke of The Wall Street Journal. The purchase happened privately through a limited-liability company and high-end wealth manager, according to Clarke.It's just the latest addition to Zuckerberg's collection of properties in the western US - he also owns properties in Palo Alto, San Francisco, and the Hawaiian island of Kauai, making Tahoe his fourth location.
Collectively, Zuckerberg has purchased 10 properties, though he has a knack for also buying surrounding properties to ensure his privacy - he bought four homes surrounding his main Palo Alto residence and a stake in a beach adjacent to a plantation he purchased in Kauai.
Zuckerberg's also known for getting embroiled in a bit of real estate conflict - there was a dispute over the landlocked parcels on the plantation, and neighbors reportedly weren't pleased with the effects of Zuckerberg's year-plus renovation on his San Francisco townhouse.
