After becoming the target of the tech paparazzi and moving out of his last residence, the Facebook frontman has finally upgraded himself to a living situation befitting of a real grownup who is also very rich. Kind of like how he finally started wearing a suit and tie, even if it was just a show for the President. According to the RealEstalker Zuckerberg, who is well known for finding reasonably modest living situations on Craigslist (Bazillionaires: They're just like us!), dropped a cool $7 million on this Palo Alto 5-bedroom in the quiet-sounding Crescent Park neighborhood. RealEstalker gives us the verbal tour:
The turn-of-the-century residence, set well back from the street behind walls and privacy hedges, was originally built in 1903 and remodeled and expanded over the years. The previous owners-who reportedly still occupy the home as of yesterday-gave the property a complete and expensive overhaul a few years ago that included the addition of an entertainment pavilion with outdoor fireplace and built-in barbecue and a lap-lane salt water swimming pool and spa.
A wide rocking chair porch leads to and impress-the-guests entrance hall and reception area, a formal living with fireplace, banquet hall sized dining room, wood-paneled family room with built-in cabinetry and a large center-island kitchen that opens into a glassed-in sun porch. The master bedroom includes a bathroom with twin Carrera marble topped vanities, separate soaking tub and shower and heated floors for tootsie warming on those chilly and damp NorCal mornings.
We wouldn't recommend trying to peek over the hedges to get a glimpse of the action in the spa though - after last year's stalking incident, dude probably isn't taking security lightly.
