Billionaire entrepreneur and inventor Elon Musk has bought a mansion in Bel-Air for $17 million.
Built in 1990 and remodeled with entertaining in mind, the 20,248-square-foot manse features a two-story library, a theater, a library/study, a wine cellar, a gym, seven bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. The 1.7-acre property includes a tennis court, a swimming pool and an expansive motor court.
Musk, 41, founded Hawthorne rocket maker SpaceX. He co-founded electric car company Telsa Motors and the Internet payment company that would become PayPal.
The property previously changed hands in 1997 for $5.35 million, public records show.
Victoria Risko of Sotheby’s Beverly Hills office was the listing agent. Brian Ades of the Sunset office represented Musk.
