Incidentally, Business Insider's Graham Rapier previously reported that Musk sold a home he owned in late August - and that was just one of several properties he reportedly owns in southern California, per Variety.
At one point, Elon Musk owned several properties collectively worth over $70 million across the greater Los Angeles area, Business Insider previously reported.
Musk bought his first piece of Bel-Air real estate in late 2012.
The Tesla CEO started off by renting the house in 2010; he lived there with his five sons.
He later purchased the mansion for $17 million.
The house has 20,248 square feet of space divided into different wings, with a total of seven bedrooms.
The kitchen features a brick ceiling.
The backyard has a pool ...
... a tennis court ...
... and a view of the exclusive Bel-Air Country Club. The house also has a gym and a wine cellar.
Musk bought the ranch house across the street from the mansion for $6.75 million in October 2013.
Beloved actor Gene Wilder lived there for over 30 years until 2007.
Musk uses the house as a private school for his children, per Variety. And in a 2015 interview with Vogue, the billionaire CEO described it as "like a little schoolhouse on the prairie, except in Bel-Air on a golf course.”
The tech mogul also previously owned this "boomerang-shaped house" in Brentwood, California, about 15 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles. He paid just under $3.7 million for it in 2014, per the Variety-owned real-estate site Dirt.
That house is surrounded by privacy hedges for security ...
... but has floor-to-ceiling windows throughout to let the light in.
He sold the house for $4 million in late August 2019, Business Insider previously reported.
Musk bought another Bel-Air mansion while it was still under construction for $24.25 million in 2016, Variety reported that year.
Notably, Musk doesn't appear to own a house near the Tesla factory in Fremont, California. He has previously said that he slept on a couch or the floor of a conference room during busy production periods.
