Why buy a lake house when you could buy an entire compound? Well if you’re a multi-billionaire like Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, it’s seems like a wise choice. The tech giant just purchased two side-by-side mansions on Lake Tahoe totaling a whopping $59 million.
While the price tag is higher than probably anyone could ever imagine paying for a vacation home, it’s just a kick in the bucket for a man valued around $70 billion. The pair of properties total around 10 acres, have a total of 15 bedrooms, and include numerous piers to house multiple boats.
The smaller mansion, called Carousel Estate, is a charming Tudor-style home, built back in the early 1930s. The other house, called Brushwood Estate, was built in the ’60s and has two adjoining guest houses for visitors to enjoy.
Take a Look at the billionaire’s lakeside escape.
Lush foliage provides a bit of privacy to the founder’s first estate.
What A View
Full Of Charm
The home’s exterior truly has a charming feel.
On The Water
We have a feeling Zuck will have plenty of boats to dock up on the pier.
Ready To Roast
The home definitely has a rustic farmhouse style that is perfect for a holiday retreat.
We bet the Zuckerbergs (or a personal chef) will whip up plenty of yummy meals to enjoy after their lakeside activities.
The home has plenty of windows so you can always enjoy the great outdoors.
Be His Guest
With 15 bedrooms, we are sure Mark will be having fellow tech founders come hang at this lovely retreat.
Come the snowy winter months, we bet the hot tub will get used after a visit to the ski slopes.
Acres On Acres
While one mansion is great, a tech founder needs way more than a few acres to roam.
Down the way is the Brushwood Estate.
Real Estate Gold
This mansion alone cost $37 million.
The lawn is already equipped for sitting out and watching the gorgeous lakeside sunset.
This mansion comes with three buoys of its own.
The beautiful home also takes on a rustic aesthetic.
Time To Dine
A more formal dining room is ready for all of Mark’s guests.
The home is equipped with a well-stocked kitchen.
Room With A View
We have a feeling Mark and his wife Priscilla Chan will call this room.
The large home has plenty of spots for relaxation.
We have a feeling the Facebook founder may get pretty competitive at the pool table.
Outdoor dining is definitely the way to go at this home during the summer.
Take A Dip
Of course, you need two hot tubs for your compound.
We wonder if Zuck will host a company retreat at his cool new pad.
We definitely would give this home a Haute like.
