Under 40, Mark Zuckerberg is one of the 10 richest people in the world. The programmer, who made his fortune by founding Facebook (since 2021, Meta Platforms), invests part of his capital in properties with a particular strategy. Currently, he owns 10 homes located in California, San Francisco, Palo Alto, and Lake Tahoe, as well as several units on Kauai in Hawaii.
In 2011, nearly a year before he married Priscilla Chan, Zuckerberg bought a 5,500-square-foot house in Palo Alto, just 10 minutes from Facebook’s Menlo Park campus. According to Architectural Digest, the businessman paid US$7 million for the property, which has five bedrooms and five bathrooms, and then spent a significant sum to equip it with the technological advances he wanted, including an artificial intelligence assistant made custom named Jarvis. The mansion also has a saltwater pool, a winter garden on the terrace, and a huge barbecue area in the backyard.
