Musk used the house as a private school for his children. 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."

Musk later purchased two more on Bel Air mansions on an adjacent street — another ranch house for $20 million in July 2015 and an unfinished mansion for $24.25 million in 2016.

Neighbors told the Wall Street Journal in December that the 9,309-square-foot mansion has been under construction since 2011.

Two years later, Musk reportedly bought another mansion next door to those. The property — a colonial-style, two-story home built with a white brick facade — is estimated to be worth $4.2 million.

Musk had bought yet another Los Angeles mansion for $4.3 million in July 2015, but apparently didn't maintain it well. In December, the Wall Street Journal described this property as "unkempt, with a scruffy, bush-filled front yard, a stained glass window, a clay rabbit and dead plants in pots by the front door."

Neighbors also told the Journal in December that it didn't appear anyone was living in this house full-time.

Though Musk has previously said that he sleeps on a couch or on the floor of a conference room in Tesla's Fremont, California headquarters during busy production periods, he also owns another estate nearby.

Located in the ritzy Bay Area suburb of Hillsborough, the 100-year-old, 16,000-square-foot Mediterranean-style mansion boasts 10 bedrooms, bay views, hiking trails, and a ballroom. Musk bought it for $23.4 million in June 2017.

The tech mogul also previously owned this "boomerang-shaped house" in Brentwood, California, about 15 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles with his ex-wife Talulah Riley. The former couple paid just under $3.7 million for it in 2014, per the Variety-owned real-estate site Dirt.
